Hmmm - well that's the problem with perception and false narratives. I grew up "across the bridge" on the Eastern shore of Maryland and I can assure you a white child was and still is WAY more safe walking in a Black neighborhood than a Black child in a sundown town back then and today...

The reality is if a white child is hurt or missing the local police will make that child a priority.

But if a Black child is hurt or missing especially in a white neighborhood - the focus would be on why the child was in the neighborhood (even if they live there) not on the crime committed against the child. ex. Trevon Martin
