Invisible girl.

From Democracy Now!: "In Texas, a public high school has apologized for describing an African American student as simply a 'Black Girl' instead of running her name in a photo in the school's yearbook. The photo featured members of the school's National Honor Society. Every student was identified by name except one female student who was the only African American pictured. Instead of her name were the words 'Black Girl.' The school claims the words were used as an inappropriate placeholder that was overlooked before publication."
