I saw the show "Find Our Missing" on TV One and I think this is a good attempt to help find Blacks that have been missing. The law doesn't show any effort when trying to locate our own. There are so many missing Black children that the law and the media doesn't focus on like they would for non-blacks and it end up being a cold case.

I agree. I think Tyler is smart for this. It's not my money of course but it would be good to see wealthy blacks that gained from black support contributing reward money to missing blacks.

If we put a premium on our own. Others will too.

Your also a top of the table 37.7% of all US murderers.

I wonder which is more sad, a 13% minority being 33% of the missing or 37.7% of all murderers.

Also, the 'missing' may just be dead somewhere, and blacks are responsible for 90% pf all black murders.

Don't this kind of thing make you really proud to be black?

C/S... Tyler is one who has not forgotten where he came from and he has been giving back, maybe others will follow in his lead.

Dead or alive family members have a right to know and this is the purpose of the show.

No matter what other members of our race has done it does not change the fact they are part of a race I am proud of and I'm sure you feel the same about yours even though you are considered part of a race that has 'mass' murderers. Now that we both had our say you should create a new thread if you would like to finish this discussion... go ahead and wait.
