She's:

This tells alot about what this country has become.
She's not white.
She's not blonde.
She doesn't have a well to do Mommy.

I once asked someone who worked at one of the larger circulation daily papers why they devoted almost no coverage to missing women of color. He told me that it was all related to advertising and appealing to the broadest (WHITE) demographic. He said "When yer average citizen pickes up the paper and the front page has a missing female on it, when she's brown, they put it down." This was from someone who I had up to this point concidered pretty smart and socially aware. I really began to lose hope that day and I haven't seen anything in the last six years to change that.
