FOR COMMENT NUMBER 5    

Just a few. NUMBER 5. This family is stronger than you can imagine. Its roots reach back for generations and its future reaches farther than you can imagine. You would like to speak of "us" collectively, but what you fail to realize is there has not been an "us" since the first of US landed here. I will demonstrate this in your own DIVISIVE and IGNORANT statements...

Firstly, even while this family tries to deal with a DOUBLE HOMICIDE AND KIDNAPPING, your small minded(ness) will not allow you to think of anything but weight??? What does weight have to do with worrying for your child? What does weight have to do with grieving for your slain Mother and Brother?

Next, thank you, you highly evolved black person for religiously checking your myspace.com page, a full 5 minutes after Ms. Hudson plead for the safe return of her son. You are a true good samaritan.

That you cannot think of anything better to give this family than words of hate and enforcement of separatism is as much an example of "our" inabilty to support "us", even at our lowest emotional states.

We (and by that I mean "HUMAN BEINGS") may all have our opinions about the choices leading to this terrible, crushing, and heartbreaking tragedy, the emotion should be the same for any normal MAMMAL living WITH SENTIENCE...

BRING HER BABY HOME!!! YOU HAVE DONE ENOUGH! LEAVE HER WITH HER CHILD, SO THAT HER ALREADY DESIMATED FAMILY CAN BEGIN TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER AND LEAD SOME SEMBLANCE OF NORMAL, HEALTHY LIVES!!!!!!!!

So when you have your opinions about something, it might be better to keep them to yourself! You prove that you are a cold, callous, unfeeling, frigid, non-human, or rather, non-mammal. For the least of US care for an love our young. And search for them, feed them, love and nurish them. And it has nothing to do with weight, celebrity, class or status. It is a soul connection, something apparently, you do not understand!

thank you

6. The media and comment posters should keep in mind that some of the Hudson family see these reports on the web, Jennifer Hudson's sister Julia has been checking her myspace yesterday and today, and many of their relatives are on the web surfing also.

Yeah, this is the first place I'd want to hang out shortly after a tragic double homicide strikes my family.

As if we didn't already place ' dysfunctional ' in front of this family name.....
Straight from Julias' page: < edited, because it's needed>
TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF
JULIA DARNELL HUDSON
Want to have kids?: WHETER I WANTED TO OR NOT HIS ASS IS HERE
How many siblings do you have?: YOUR GUESS IS AS GOOD AS MINE
Your Weakness: GOOD D**K
Ever been called a Tease: GOT A P***Y DON'T I
Do you know 4's parents?: I SHOULD HOPE SINCE THE SAME P***Y SET US FREE

All class....lower, but class nonetheless!
FYI : Ignorance is NOT bliss.
Hope you find the child / Hope you find self respect through much needed education.

It's amazing how we can make any event racial. The girl's myspace page, its contents, nor her weight have anything to do with the tragedy her family is dealing with. Yes her page is pretty raw, but what does that have to do with anything. It has nothing to do with people showing their condolence and saying God Bless. We all need some blessings.

It was mentioned that she needs to lose weight; that she's unhealthy....being big does not ALWAYS mean one is unhealthy. Lets be real, being skinny does not mean you're healthy either. It's amazing how we are so quick to judge people. Let's stop judging people by what's on the outside and focus on the inside. So what if she has been on myspace chating and adding new people since this tragedy....if that is going to help ease her mind, then let her do her thing. Everyone grieves in their own way. If you have never been in such a situation then you don't know how you will deal with it. Sitting around crying is not going to change things or make them better (you will go crazy).

Let's just keep the Hudson family in our prayers. Pray for strength, healing, understanding, and the safety of Julian King.

MISS BLACK WOMAN 2008 american blacks are there own worse enemy... that siege mentality has got to go... you dont take constructive criizism very well and as a group you ASSUME THAT YOUR GHETTO CULTURE IS THE WHOLE STORY FOR THE BLACK WORLD. it isnt.. 30MILLION BLACK PEOPLE IN THE USA DO NOT COMPROMISE THE ENTIRE BLACK EXPERIENCE STOP ASSUMING THAT IS THE SUM TOTAL OF THE BLACK WORLD ... PERSONALLY I FIND IT IRRITATING BEING LUMPED INTO THAT CATAGORY.. THE N WORD IS YOUR LEGACY ITS NOT FROM AFRICA.. SELF HATE COMES FROM YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS.. BUT UNFORTUNATELY .. THANKS TO YOUR CURRENT LINE IN MUSIC, (HIO HOP AND RAP)ITS SPREADING TO AFRICAN YOUTH AND AS FOR THE CARRIBEANS.. THEY JUST LAP IT ALL UP LIKE MINDLESS DRONES ...

THAT ASIDE, MISS MIDDLECLASS BLACK AMERICA.. this is about a family trajedy not about miss big booty ghetto pass unrevoked.., jennifer got out of that mess with her talent... but that fact that she couldnt persuade her mother to leave that all behind is the pity... having a known killer within your midst is like a ticking time bomb, it takes one thing to set it off.... everyone will be blaming jennifer for not getting her mother out of the ghetto but its not her fault.. the problem was having murderers living with them onsite... its a way of life that only those who live that lifestyle understand .. guns and jailtime is normal in this neighbourhood .. i just pity jennifer who has to live with this horrible situation for the rest of her public life... i hope she pulls thru and i hope they find that little boy... ps.. it would be a good idea if jennifers pr machine can get her sisters myspace paged pulled to private or the press will have a field day.. ghetto wonderland doesnt even begin to describe this nightmare...

We are on the look out for Julian in south Florida. Let the boy go so he can be with his Mother. If he saw the crime he must be so scared and upset. Don't hurt him. Drop him off at a safe place where he can be found and picked up. The Lord will look upon you with less saddened eyes.

Lemme see. I'd say that multiple gunshot wounds just might constitute domestic violence, with or without the presence of defensive wounds. Dontcha think?

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Hudson family, and friends, we too grieve with this family. This act of violence is unimaginable. We also pray for the safe return of little Julian King, to his family, and pray that in time the whole family and friends can go on. Our heart goes out to all of you, Jennifer. I believe that your mother and brother are smiling down on you, because they know you 've made them proud. I commend you for all that you are, and I know that this is do to the way you were raised, you remained grounded and that is important for young people that want to be famous too see. You are a true role model. Stay strong, we love you my sister!!

What a terrible time to bring out the hate and judgement . Please quit blaming of the victim. Whatever mistakes the people in this family have made, none of them deserved to be murdered or have their loved ones murdered and kidnapped. This family needs love and support. The cruelty veiled behind the anonymity of the Internet is astounding.
