It is not the sole responsibility of black feminists and black people to demand what has happened to the black girls and women who are missing in Washington D.C. and our country. We are all accountable to keep our girls and women safe and alive. Let’s not racialize and genderize life because of political correctness and racial, gender, or ethnic affiliation. To put it another way, we should never divide and categorize human life on the basis of race and gender distinctions.
The life of black girls and women have value and human dignity, as much as the life of women in other races do. The struggle for safeguarding or protecting life is and should be a human concern and national campaign.
