Thanks to a series of viral tweets, the world has learned the names of 10 women of color who disappeared from the Washington, D.C. area over the past 10 days.

Twitter user @BlackMarvelGirl tweeted out photos and information about 8 Black girls who were reported missing in the last week on Sunday night. @BlackMarvelGirl’s tweets gained traction receiving 35,000 retweets in 12 hours, Teen Vogue reports.

The stream of tweets illuminated the erasure of missing women of color from major media outlets.

Currently, 15-year-old Jacqueline Lassey, 13-year-old Yahshaiyah Enoch, 15-year-old Antwan Jordan, 15-year-old Juliana Otero, 15-year-old Dashann Trikia Wallace, 13-year-old Aniya McNeil, 15-year-old Dayanna White, 16-year-old Talisha Coles, and 15-year-old Morgan Richardson are all still missing.

If you have any information on the location of the missing teens, call the Washington, D.C. police department at 202-727-9099.

    I recommend that people carry knives and made since most people can’t carry guns, especially our youth. They need protection as we adults do. We are better equipped legally and maturity. People need weapons. Just about anything can be used as a weapon. The key is to be determined to use it if necessary. I’m praying for all of them and the rest of us everywhere. The worst part us that just about anyone can be a suspect. That is sinful and shameful. God please help us!tell everyone to carry weapons.

  2. So sad to see the concern for these babies. We would rather talk politics or critique the childrens names. In case anyone cares……all of these teens last whereabouts were withing 15 minutes of each other. Its all in one area. Bye.

      This is so true.if you are guided by your heart and spirit the right thing comes naturally. Children always must be priority in all circumstances. I believe in Jesus and I will be glad when he comes back to start a new world. I hope its true.

  3. chris you have it twisted, what in your small mind makes you think I have blind loyalty to anyone just because I don’t fall for the ookie-doke of the Republican party? Please believe I will never be a trump supporter or a republican. I could never be part of a party full of racists bigots. One more time in case you missed it the first time, all republicans may not be racists but ALL racists are republicans. They are so messed up they are divided within their own party. Its only days until they will no longer be able to defend their prez, but how can they? Example: Your prez says the NY Times is “fake news” but yet and still he read an article in the NY Times that mentioned “wiretap” and concluded Prez O had his crib wiretapped. Either it’s fake news or it’s not. On top of that he has supplied not one ounce of proof, and that’s logical to you? You speak of following blindly, ah that would be you. To quote Malcom X, “Cause you’re a chump. A political chump!”

      You lose all credibility when you state that not one Democrat is a racist, not a single person in this country of millions of Democrats. That is just laughable and is proof of you are the blind sheep.

    Peeps, we got to put a stop to this nonsense of making crazy azz hoochie names up for children. Yahshaiyah? Dashann Trikia WTF? C’mon Man. I see that shiggity on a resume, it’s going straight 86.

    • Why should we have to change our names! Whites don’t, Jews don’t, etc! As Black Americans, we should not have to disguise our names to get an interview for a job! That’s why we must start our own businesses, employ the Shanequas, etc., & stop patronizing other businesses that don’t care about our community, only our dollars!!!

    @chris exactly what, in your estimation, qualifies me as a house negress? I mean, whose house would that be? LMAO, I usually let the slander slide but for real, tho?

    • Dr. Larry on said:

      How about publishing the identity if a grand jury member’s identity? “However, unlike Johnson, “Witness 40”–a 45-year-old St. Louis resident named Sandra McElroy–was nowhere near Canfield Drive on the Saturday afternoon Brown was shot to death” Hands up, don’t shoot. C’mon man.

      You and Cottman are house negroes for the democrat party. You hold the keys to the plantation, but you won’t unlock the gates with the truth for the black community to recognize that the democrat party cares for black people only when they need their votes. People on here sometimes quote Malcolm X, but I have never seen this one:
      “You put them first,” said Malcolm X, “and they put you last. ‘Cause you’re a chump. A political chump! … Any time you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that party can’t keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party — you’re not only a chump but you’re a traitor to your race.”

    Seriously? You post a photo of a BLM sign. BLM does not give a puck about these girls. Shaun King does not give a puck, Al Sharpton does not give a puck, house negro Michael Cottman does not give a puck, house negress Tonya Pendleton does not give a puck, Tom Joyner does not give a puck, Roland Martin, does not give a puck, Don Lemon does not give a puck. BUT, if one of these girls were shot by a cop, oh Lord, lights out. Perhaps Michelle Obama can hold up another sign with some insignificant hashtag message?
    What do you think?

        When I post on here, I speak the truth. I bring facts to the the table, because of yours and Diane’s and Linda’s plantation mentality and blind loyalty to the left, you choose to ignore it. The truth is a whole lot more helpful to the black community than the ignorant rants of the ill-informed.
