In this Oct. 29, 2019, photo, Donnesha Cooper touches a photo of her daughter, Alianna DeFreeze, in Cleveland. Her daughter’s murder and the murder of Reagan Tokes had a lot in common. Yet only one victim got a law with her name on it, Tokes, who was white. An Associated Press analysis found that more than 8 in 10 stand-alone laws named for victims of violent crime identified since 1990 honored white victims or groups of victims that included at least one white person. That has left black victims such as DeFreeze underrepresented by such laws. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
