It makes for an interesting observational viewpoint as to why all of the social and anti racism programs can't fix the underlying issues.
What are the underlying issues and how have they tried to fix them?
There are a lot of socioeconomic and racist issues stemming back decades that have been left unresolved and are now conflicted with today's issues. You can't fix what you either don't know or acknowledge.
If you have been to the hood lately, you would find that there is no room to plant a garden and if you did, it would be destroyed for someone else's entertainment. You had alcohol, land, pick up trucks, you walked to school.... you must be one of those white privileged folk,
What would be a solution?
I think you are talking about different things. There are programs and have been for a long time, that they claim will address inner city problems. But they never do and things continue. You have had several generations of a strong family living in the same home and making the best of what you had. Many inner city families now are made up of children living with single mothers. If the mom works outside of the home, children are left to raise themselves. There isn’t a father or a grandparent to watch the children, or a dad to go to work so a mom can stay home.
Did grow up in an inner city? Growing up without much money is different than growing up without hope. Maybe families would be better off without so called helpful programs.
Ugh, the man who was mayor here for years finally worked his way up in politics and is trying to legalize pot here claiming that it would be a financial boon for the state. Hell, he knows darn well the impact of especially drugs in this community and on families. How dare he?
