How does a jobless father of four keep his family warm and fed in Detroit during the harsh winter? By donating his plasma and collecting wood from the abundant amount abandoned homes around the bankrupt city.

And, don't tell anyone, but he just happens to be Black, as well.
Sounds like he is surviving by scavenging (i.e. vandalizing) other peoples’ property. But I’ll concede your point for the moment.
This man deserves a leg up, a good paying job in a booming state like North Dakota.
Maybe someone will read about him and offer re-location
Some oil company should hire this guy and move him they need help and the oil companies need workers..
Nothing in the article suggests he is not getting any government assistance.
Just says he sells plasma and steals wood.
Why not just get a job?
DEMOCRATS, destroying the American dream, one job at a time.
yep... they are abandoned by former owners, but probably still owned by a bank, therefore this is stealing.
hey fella, move... you could move cheap... that is no life back there. pack up what’s left of your things, your 2 flat screen T.Vs.. and kids and go. someone said North Dakota.. sounds like a plan.
Jobs in Detroit are probably as scarce as snow at the equator.....
As expected the self righteous among us are right here to run him down.
Come on we all know the man has held him down..dang crackers ain’t got no jobs I want, iobamma phone..yea...detrit is now a 3rd world hellhole. If the fed gangsta isn’t reined in they will continue to rob citizens and states so these folks can get some crack rock.
as well, he is probably burning painted or some sort of treated wood, which will choke up the chimney and is quite toxic...
i lived 1 paycheck away this kind of thing... moved to another area.... granted having 4 kids makes it hard, really hard..
Not quite but close. Unfortunately our tech fixated governor hates blue collar jobs and dirty factories.
Local DNC offices ought to double as soup kitchens and flop houses, because THAT is where they will be needed.
All the people who went out and supported the BS policies and candidates who reduced them and their city to poverty and hopelessness.... will be close to their base.
Most important is the fact that the man is with his kids.
Obama is quite comfortable thank you... 3rd term? whadaya think...
He goes out and clears the wood from a fallen down house which heats his home and removes the rubble that the bank should have done.
I hope someone gets him a simple barrel stove to use besides that fireplace, that would drastically lower the wood he needs....Go mister you can do it..
I’d donate some firewood to the guy. Its mostly crap willow but its well seasoned and will burn.
We should send this guy a care package for his kids.
