Must a victim look like us and be like us in order for us to care?

Do we only care about trafficking victims if they are white and middle class?
Will we only act if the one being hurt looks like us and lives in our neighborhood?
Do we justify someone's victimization by where they were born, their economic class, sexual identity or the color of their skin? Saying to ourselves, what else can be expected...
Do we dismiss someone as a victim once they turn 18? 20? 30? 
Do we view the runaway as bringing on her own misery not ever looking at what made her run in the first place?

If someone is being trafficked and exploited, should any of the other things matter? Is the African American girl's pain less than the white girl's? Is the 19 year-old better equipped to handle the daily rapes and degradation than the 17 year-old? Is the poor person's suffering easier for us to accept than the one born into relative ease? Does the abused runaway being bought for sex deserve it? When the undocumented person is being sold out of the back of a van, is that "just what they get" for trusting they had a job in the US?

And those who traffick and exploit are from every race and nationality. They are men and women. They hurt who they can. And they look for those who are more vulnerable...who lack a powerful voice. They look for those who are ignored by the media and the rest of society...minorities, runaways, at-risk people, those who have been scarred up in this life. Those who don't make the "perfect victim," those who would be easily dismissed by mainstream society. Which brings me back to the original questions:

Do we only care about trafficking victims if they are white and middle class?
Will we only act if the one being hurt looks like us and lives in our neighborhood?
Do we justify someone's victimization by where they were born, their economic class, sexual identity or the color of their skin? Saying to ourselves, what else can be expected...
Do we dismiss someone as a victim once they turn 18? 20? 30? 
Do we view the runaway as bringing on her own misery not ever looking at what made her run in the first place?

Because if we do, we are helping the traffickers and the buyers. And we need to be honest about that and choose to do better.
