After experiencing multiple incidents where strangers have accused them of harming their children, the Moore parents have had enough! The couple is incensed and beyond tired of consistently experiencing racism.


Thirty-seven-year-old mechanic Harry Moore and his wife, 43-year-old Jennifer McDuffie-Moore, a learning specialist, are proud parents of 6 beautiful children.

Twenty-one-year-old Joy and 11-year-old Kourtney are their biological children, while the other four, 10-year-old Keenan, 8-year-old Sanchez, and 3-year-old twins Brayden and Trevor, are adopted. Keenan, Brayden, and Trevor are all white.

The outraged Moores said the fact that some of their kids have lighter complexions had led to the mom and dad encountering racism, even before they legally adopted them. The mother said:

"It took us 2,695 days to adopt Keenan because we are black."

However, Harry and Jennifer's primary concern is the purported constant assumption from individuals that they kidnapped their white children. The couple claims that cops have pulled them over on numerous occasions under suspicion that they were abducting their own kids.



Speaking about experiences with individuals outside of law enforcement, Jennifer claims that once while at a park, one of the twins had a tantrum, and a white lady assumed the worst. The mother alleged:

“I scooped the kids up and she thought I was stealing them. One of the twins said: ‘No, that’s my mom.’"


The learning specialist claims that this stranger was threatening to call the police as well. She expressed that she finds this behavior unjustified and that individuals should stick to their own business.

Jennifer claimed that she makes an effort to speak with her children about race and the issues surrounding it but wishes the general population would educate themselves too. The 43-year-old stated:

"Instead of scrutinizing what color people are or their gender or their preferences, people should understand that love really does support a family."

Love does seem to be the glue that holds the Moore family together, along with the parents' fierce determination to speak out about any discrimination they or their kids may encounter.



Intolerance isn't, in any way, a new phenomenon. Forty years ago, Penny Umbers was forced to give up the love of her life, Mark Bethel, due to racism.

While they were in college, Umbers' dad found out about their relationship. He threatened to contact those in superior positions to revoke Bethel's university scholarship if they didn't separate.

However, following failed marriages and searching for one another, the two have rekindled their love. After four decades, Bethel and Umbers got engaged, unencumbered by others who may have power over them.

As commonplace as the sentiment is, Bethel and Umbers and the Moore family show that love can be a force breaking through the discriminatory barriers set up by society.
