BLACK WOMAN MISSING ( dedicated to Latasha Norman )
written in anger by George L. Cook III November 23, 2007 www.letstalkhonestly.com

I am a black woman missing

Why don't you talk about me?
Don't you care where I might be?
Am I the wrong color to have my story on TV?

What's wrong?
I'm not pretty, white and rich?
I guess that to you
I'm just some poor black .....

Why don't you talk about me?
Don't you care where I might be?
Am I the wrong color to have my story on TV.

Why don't I get air time?
Is it the fact that I don't have naturally straight hair?
Is is that America isn't interested?
Is it that America just doesn't care?

Why don't you talk about me?
Don't you care where I might be?
Am I the wrong color to have my story on TV.

I may still be alive!
Someone may have seen me!
Maybe they would remember
If they saw my face on TV!

So ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News
Why don't you talk about me?!
Don't you care where I might be?!
Am I the wrong color to have my story on TV?!

I am a black woman missing!
Please talk about me!
Help America find me!
PUT MY STORY ON TV!
