"We all have convicts and black sheep in our family"? Are you serious? NO. We DON'T all have those type people in our familiies. How sad for you that you think this is somehow "normal".

Wow    

Balfour's mother just said publicly that maybe Julia can talk to William and get him to tell her. Yeah, her mother and brother are dead, her son is missing, and she's supposed to interrogate the suspect. Pure stupidity. My prayers are that this innocent little boy will be found safe very soon. This family needs a silver lining, a miracle, and a break.

Folks may beg to differ, but here's my heart-filled opinion on the mother of the family.

She was selfish. May her soul rest in peace, but here me out: she was selfish.

She didn't want to leave her roots. The place she called home, where she could go outside and know everyone within the 15 mile radius, their folks, and their folks, and so on...

She felt safe, she felt comfortable.

She was selfish.

She was selfish because instead of thinking about her comfort, and having the fear of the 'church people' thinking she got too ' big headed ' once her daughter became a celeb and famous.. she should have been thinking about ONE person's live she could change forever: her grandson.

South Side of Chicago. Slums. Crime. Violence. Poverty.

I doubt he went to a school that valued HIGH education standards.

I doubt he was involved in local extra- curricular activities.

His community does not promote and encourage kids to necessarily excel.

But his Grandmother felt safe, thus, her offspring choose mates who were also products of this environment.

It's a sick vicious cycle.

People ask 'why should she have moved? this could've happened anywhere!'.. well yes, true.

But perhaps in another community Julia could see that her health affects her life. Perhaps she would've been inspired to lose weight and participate in a healthy lifestyle - which would in turn trickle down to her son. 7 years old and 130lbs?? That's quite a bit of weight. Well of course. We're in the South Side. There aren't alot of afterschool programs. Was he in soccer? Oh no, the kids in the inner city does embrace those sports, as they are deemed "too white". This young kid is a product of his grandmothers selfishness.

It's OK to move out the hood. It's even better to put money back into our communities. But we don't have to be in the midst of drama and raise our children to think having fatherless homes, no jobs, and crime on every corner is the way of life.

Stop being so selfish!

Got an opportunity to do better? Take it..and run, don't walk!

You cant judge her for the things he did. I have never dated anyone with a jail record, but she may have felt that he changed. Do you honestly think she would marry someone that she thinks would harm her, her son or anyone in her family. We dont know the specifics surrounding the prior case (Im sure the media will release those details soon) so we cant judge her. Also she just lost her mother, her brother and possibly her child by the hands of her husband. Blaming her and questioning her reasons for marrying him is not helping at all. If the situation were reversed, Im sure you wouldn't like being blamed for marrying the person that shot your mother and brother multiple times causing there death. Offer your condolences not your critiques.

Condolences have been offered by EVERYONE in this thread thus far.

Someone needs to step up and tell women, Black women, that we don't have to settle for this.

The church ain't doing it, fathers ain't doing it(many are not around), mothers are not doing it, the community isn't doing it, the media sure in the hell is not going to do it...SO I'M DOING IT

So from a black woman to all the other black women out there: DO BETTER.

Also on the sister's page it says she's 5'10, and between 165-210 pounds. Now she may be that tall, but there's no way she's seen 210 pounds in a very long time.

Shay, I agree. I don't see why people don't settle things the old fashioned way. If someone stole my car, I'd call the cops

I did too, one thing I noticed is that those comments were answers to a survey for the most part, not her actual comments
