Black and (UPDATED: 3/7/13)

MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, THE ORIGINAL LINK HAS PLACED A PASSWORD ON THEIR WEBSITE?!!!  WTF?  (Who does that?!)  Since I originally posted this, other sites have formed therefore here’s the new link to a website where there’s no need for a password and you can feel free to view the many pages of our missing.  HERE IS THE NEW LINK:


I want to be sure to remind people to check their link periodically.  This organization has devoted itself to highlighting missing Black women and children that mainstream media fails to cover.  Remember: this source is only effective if we utilize it.  They find stories of missing women and children all over the U.S. so you could make a difference.  Here’s a bit of research they’ve gathered that bears keeping in mind:

Missing persons under the age of 18 accounted for 614,925 cases. Black children made up of 211,921 (34%) compared with just 25,333 (4%) of whites (including Hispanics).

Be sure to click their link under our blogroll or here: . We encourage people who blog or have websites to add their link to your blogroll as well.  You never know when you might be able to save a life!

    • Hi MIP and happy Sunday to you! Thanks for linking their link to your blog!!!! Gosh, we need all the help we can when it comes to remembering that us black women and children are missing too! The real stats are shocking, aren’t they?

      I love the art of debate so no matter anyone’s views, I think debate is important. I’m never offended by different points of view, but that just me. O, wait, there’s no debate for a man abusing a woman though, you know? I had to put a page for people to see because they’ve been missing this organization under the blogroll even though it’s near the top. And “I likit u when I first senited you u too” hahaha (okay– couldn’t resist writing it that way, in other words– I like your style too, lady)!!!

  1. Just wanted to tell you that the predicament of Sherry Peel Jackson, in the hands of the US government has reached the northern shores of Norway (Europe) too, and that we’re eager to get news of her situation

    Trond Ruud

    • Well, hello, Trond– and welcome to our “family” at Why O’ Why!

      Thank you so much for chiming in on Sherry’s predicament all the way from Norway! I’m passing this comment on to her husband so that Sherry knows how far and wide she’s reached so many! She really is my hero! Her husband and I hope to be able to do another update soon. Speaking power to truth is what life is now about so thank you for caring!

      Best regards,

    • I’ve enjoyed this contribution. Its nice to see questions answered in a blog post like this. I will add this post on my blog and link to it. Thanks for a clear informative post. I’ve learned a lot from reading this. I hope to see videos though as I can be A.D.D and reading articles is not my favorite thing to do online. So what I do sometimes is just print the whole thing and read offline.

      • I’m glad the site has been useful in some way. And thanks for linking “Black and Missing”– people really should be more aware of what they are doing.

        I try to post a mixture of videos and text– each reader prefers something different so I try to be flexible. My main focus is to disseminate accurate information that is research friendly.

    • Some genuinely excellent posts on this site, thanks for contribution. “Always aim for achievement, and forget about success.” by Helen Hayes.

    • Well, I’m glad it can/will help! No matter the profession, black women and girls need a helping hand every now and then so THANK GOSH for “Black and Missing.Org”. Be safe out there!


  2. Hey there I am so excited I found your blog, I really found you by accident, while I was researching on Yahoo for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a remarkable post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the minute but I have book-marked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the awesome job.

    • Hi Coletta! You are too kind! You’ve made this sister blush big time! I’m glad you’re digging the blog and I’m glad to see people become more familiar with Black and They’ve been quietly doing great things for too long without the proper KUDOS.

      I wish I could take credit for the design but it’s a template on wordpress but I’m glad to know you like it and have us book marked for future reading. It’s a pretty serious blog most of the time, but I do try to post some light stuff on occasion. If you like puppies and kids… you’ll find some cute stuff as they are my cryptonite. They are my weakness big time. 🙂

      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your wonderfully kind words!


  3. @ Wilmer Guger, thanks for the KUDOS! 🙂

    @ Florist San Francisco, I have no skills in that area. It’s a template through wordpress. Glad you like it!

    @ prestige worldwide– thanks for the nice words. Have a great day.

    @ ipad cases, by all means, please share their link and information! That’s the only way to get the word out and gain more coverage for the many missing black women and children! 🙂
