Hi Ranjeet, thanks for the response. Actually, I used the word “Hispanic” when recounting the details of the phone I received. I also used the words “nine year old” and “female” in the description. I do hope you read that as well. She is the victim, not the suspect.

The baby and the family I referred to in the scenario was a real incident that I experienced and the entire family was African American, not white.

I assure you my story has nothing to do with race.
