but to disenfranchise an entire people then set them free with promise of support and help and come through with nothing, well, what would you expect?
Minorities have had exceptional opportunities in this country. There are and have been for quite a while minority programs to fund child care, buy a
home, college grants and scholarships, employment training, start and own businesses, if you can name it, it probably exists. There are volunteer
programs to give away school supplies, food, medications, services, furniture...even fricken' prom dresses! All funded by volunteers or taxpayers on
the state and federal level.
Usually, being a minority is usually NOT the ONLY requirement to be met, maybe that's the problem.
There are many, many
non-minorities in need but they will not meet that minority requirement so they don't qualify for any of the above. They
do however get the privilege
to provide for their own families AND for others while hearing them complain about not enough support. It gets
sickening to hear from people wearing better clothes, eating better food, owning better furniture and technology, having nicer things than those who
provide them. Especially since food, clothing, shelter and love are the only four real requirements in life.
To say minorities have been strung along with little or no support is just plain hogwash.
