‎Sex trafficking‬ is the new American Slavery

‪#‎Sex_trafficking‬ is the new American Slavery.

“People who are having sex with children are not johns and tricks. They are child rapists and pedophiles, so we should call them what they are” ‪#‎Jada_Pinkett_Smith‬. We agree. If all men caught with an underage girls were prosecuted, jailed and labeled as sex offenders, it might make a dent in this horrible exploitation.

Finally some good news with the ‪#‎FBI‬ rescuing nearly 150 underage sex trafficking victims on Wednesday. The sting included children in Atlanta (which is known as a hub for human trafficking), Cleveland, Denver and Detroit. According to a 2014 study by Urban Institute, some traffickers in Atlanta make more than $32,000 a week. 

This was a joint effort with the National Center for ‪#‎Missing_and_Exploited_Children‬ and local law enforcement. They were able to arrest almost 150 of those involved.

So many of these ‪#‎children‬ are lured away because they are looking for attention, unhappy in their lives at home and/or school. They are manipulated and exploited and it is heartbreaking for the girls and their families.

I hope that the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is successful in getting these girls the help they so badly need to recover from having their childhoods stripped from them.
