Dasani also knows that not everyone in the projects is poor. Her Uncle Waverly, who lives in the Walt Whitman Houses across from her shelter, the Auburn Family Residence, works as a supervisor for the parks department and has a Lexus S.U.V. When he drives past Dasani and her siblings, he pretends not to know them.

Ermm wow

Excellent read. I read all 5 chapters.

Hopefully, Dasani will rise above what has been handed to her (poverty, ex drug addicted parents,etc). An 11 year old with so many adult burdens. God Bless her!

Supreme (Dasani's father) was born to heroin addicts in the Cypress Hills projects of East New York. By age 7, he knew how to shop with his mother’s food stamps and cook grits for his four younger siblings. When the pantry was empty, he made sugar sandwiches.

He was 9 when he came upon the lifeless body of his baby sister. She had been left near the entrance of the projects, wrapped in a blanket. Supreme stroked her head and kept saying her name, Precious. “She didn’t wake up,” he says.


Cry


Later that day, the agency’s workers removed Supreme and his siblings from the home. For the next three years, Supreme bounced from foster care to group homes. He soon dropped out of school and left for North Carolina to join the crack trade. By 17, Supreme had a felony drug conviction and was serving time at a maximum-security prison in Walpole, Mass.

How are the parents spending the money they get from the government?   

I don't remember reading anything where they stated they were paying rent, water, and utilities to live in the shelter.

Makes you think about all that name brand stuff that we don't need and more about doing something to make a difference.

Honestly, you can't blame the uncle.; he knows Dasani's mother and father better than the reporter. It is very easy to show love for your kid when the cameras are rolling and you might touch someone's heart who could get you out of misery. Plus, Dasani's mother has 7 kids - SEVEN. The uncle must have been much smarter and fathered less children.
So what they expect the uncle to do? He could wave at the kids when he drives by, but maybe he has done that and then eventually one day the kids ran to the car to talk to her while stopped at a red light, or her parents asked him money, you never know.

He is not supposed to help, the parents should have protected themselves against unwanted pregnancies to avoid putting so many kids through that.

Pretendng not to know you're own family is heartless. You don't have to help them, feed them, shelter them, or buy them presents. But I judge him for not acknowleding his five year old nephew's existance when he sees him. Likewise for the other children.
