"Stolen Innocence: Your Daughters Are our Daughters" on BET News
The "BET*" (Black Entertainment Television) network has aired a one hour news special “Stolen Innocence: Your Daughters Are our Daughters” about the kidnapping of girls by Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. There was a reporter from “Sahara Reporters”. The broadcast says that the BH group has killed 1500 people in Nigeria, as well as kidnap over 300 girls. The link is here.
But soon the broadcast turned to focus on domestic US trafficking, especially in Atlanta, where most girls involved are African American. The profit margin for the “industry” is 70%, and the “real men don’t buy girls” mantra was mentioned. The panel condemned hyper-individualism, and implied that the responsibility goes way beyond that of parents.
