Grandmother Says Her Missing Child Being Ignored Because She’s Black

Your Black World reports.
A grandmother in Arizona says that the reason her grandchild hasn’t gotten attention for her disappearance is because she is African American.  The girl has been missing for a week, and she has been begging the media to cover her child’s disappearance.  Jahessye Shockley was last seen on October 11 and disappeared while her mother was out running an errand.

Shirley Johnson, the girl’s grandmother, went to the state capitol this week to bring attention to her grand child’s disappearance.
