Hillary LP Eason is the reason women shouldn’t be allowed to vote:
A few of the women who received TANF checks would immediately take the money and go on shopping “sprees,” if you can call spending a hundred bucks on kids’ shoes at Foot Locker and then getting a manicure a spree. I can still see the moms coming in, loaded down with bags, and hear the teachers’ aides muttering darkly behind me: “That money be gone soon enough.” And it was. Almost always, it was.
Because from my perspective, as a college-educated, upper-middle class, 24-year-old professional, yes it seemed like a terrible idea to buy athletic jerseys and new purses instead of food or books. But I felt then, as I do now, that I wasn’t in a good position to make that call. I had no idea what these women went through every day. How was I to know what a new purse, with its bright colors and unstained exterior, was worth to them?
Black people need to make up their minds:
Are they horribly impoverished helpless victims of the legacy of slavery who live in the ‘hood and rely on white people’s extorted tax dollars to feed their children…
Are they perfectly capable of working hard and making high salaries and therefore they can so afford to buy expensive handbags and shoes — and therefore we have no reason to “profile” them when they do so?
