The Disappearance of Black Girls is Very Real in Our Community

The Disappearance of Black Girls is a Very Real Issue in Our Community

By Vivian D. Logan and Kareema Morris

(Stay Woke is to stay conscious of the apparatus (framework) of the mainstream supremacy – don’t automatically accept official explanations of violence or lack of concern for our people – keep your family safe!)

In November 2015, a 20-year-old African- American man was allegedly involved in the sex trafficking of minors and in possession of child pornography. He is reported to have used social media to lure a 17-year-old female from her New Jersey home to Buffalo, had sex with her, and coerced her to place an ad on Backpage.com offering her services for money. This same man was arrested in July 2014 for sexually assaulting and raping a 15-year-old girl, and possession of nude photos of her and another 14-year-old victim. In January 2017, a 22-year-old African-American man was arrested on sex-trafficking charges. The Buffalo man forced a 14-year old girl into prostitution, and used a website to forcibly sell her body to random men. Now age 23, this man was convicted in November 2017, for running a sex trafficking ring out of an Amherst Motel.

In May 2017, two adults and one minor were arrested on sex trafficking charges in an undercover sting which took place at two motels on Niagara Falls Boulevard. The two adult males are men of color. We need to “Stay Woke” in terms of the disappearance of African-American girls – as often time they are brushed off as just runaways. Are government agency and/or policy departments actively covering up the disappearance of women/girls of color? Nearly 75,000 African –American girls and women across the country are missing. Be mindful that we must remind authorities that young women of color matter too! Kareema Morris is founder of Bury the Violence Buffalo. Kareema offers the following words of wisdom in a world where social media and technology have replaced personal communication. Ms. Morris relates, it has been easy for strangers to enter our home with a simple stroke of a key. Often these incidents happen without our consent or permission, and the reach of technology has no boundary.

The exposure of technology and social media has no limits in terms of age, culture, ethnicity, or economic status. So, anyone can be a victim to the flipside of “social media and technology.” Nowadays it appears the easiest way for parents to keep tabs on their children is the cell phone. Cellular phones have been a gift and a curse to many families. Parents must monitor and supervise what apps (applications) are being downloaded on their child’s devices; many parents are finding that social media, cellphones, and other devices are ruining their children. Kareema shares how parents can take their control back. It’s been her experience that you can use your child’s cellphone and other devices to track their whereabouts by activating the phone locator. You can also track their app usage to see what sites they are viewing, and when they are active on social media.

Ms. Morris believes that monitoring your child’s social media, e-mail, and chat rooms usage will give parents leverage and insight regarding who is communicating with your child. Many cellphone providers offer Family Tracking Applications. This will allow you to see where your child is without contacting the cell phone company or law enforcement agencies to assist you. Parents stay woke and research your service provider policies to choose a plan that will give you a jumpstart on locating your child if ever needed. Every city, municipality, and town have different methods for locating “missing persons” or when they might get involved. It is vital that you have a safety plan for your family – even when life is going great, it’s always good to have a plan.

Next: How to Handle Repeat Running Away or Skipping School Vivian Logan manages her own consulting company (VDL enterprises, Inc.) – specializing in program development, educational remediation, workshop facilitation, and mental health training; she is also a clinician with BestSelf Behavioral Health. Kareema Morris is founder of Bury the Violence Buffalo. Bury the Violence was created to raise awareness about the senseless tragedies which occur in our community and the need to engage in “straight talk.”
