Baby born 3 months premature, mother Parasha Jones killed in Chicago shooting, True News offers racist attack

The baby is called Miracle and for a good reason. The newborn was three months premature after an emergency delivery when the girl’s mother, Parasha Jones, was shot and killed on the south side of Chicago. In some shocking coverage, the True News website offered up an offensive, racist article.

Jones, 19, is another victim of the gang violence consuming the city. The shooter reportedly got into some kind of argument with the woman and her friend beforehand. Jones was shot in the neck, rushed to Northwestern Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Family members named the extremely premature child Miracle Parasha Beard Jones.

Miracle was not due until December. She survived and is doing well.


“It’s a miracle,” Parasha Jones’ grandmother, Sylvia Ann Jones-King, told CBS Chicago. “By the grace of God, she’ll pull through.”

Police say the man injured in the shooting belonged to a gang but have not publicly stated whether the crime was gang-related. The man was shot in the neck and chest and remains in the hospital in critical condition.

Officials have released few details about the suspected shooter, who fled the scene and remains at large, except that he had dreadlocks.

Beard’s mother, Crystal Jones, responded, “The only thing I’m asking for is just justice and peace right now. That’s all I want.”

Parasha also leaves behind a 4-year-old and worked in Skokie.

From True News comes their headline: “Welfare Breeding Pregnant Negro Wildebeest Parasha Beard, 19, Shot & Killed on Chicago Deadly South Side – Also A Troubled Negro Man With A Checkered Past Shot & Wounded – All In Negro Violence”

They also added that “Police said he has documented gang ties,” but that was unconfirmed at this time and no arrests have been made.

The racist coverage prompted even worse comments, full of profanity and insults:

“Let’s hope the baby also died.”

“Killing a fat n****r hog should be something that happens 3 times a day !”

“Black wildebeest- black welfare queen- fat n***er- menace to society – pick one if those not queen you big lipped silverback”

“Imagine how many more mooching n**lets were prevented by this shooting.”
