    The “urban” neighborhoods keep finding new ways to lower the bar. I bet if the welfare money that this child generates was missing the “mother” would have noticed.

      You’re a dumb ass! How do you know the race of these individuals? Media have your kind fooled. There are more white people on welfare then my black. #alllivesmatterexceptforyours

        At most I said “urban”, you assume “black.” Who’s racist now? Since we’re on the topic, what race do you think is most likely to produce a story like this? It would have to be a race that are notoriously terrible/absentee parent(s) and have an uncanny lack of concern. Hmmmmmm, what race is that?
