4. Agreed. But that kind of talk also pisses me off.

For years I have been told by my racist family members(not all of them are like this) that poor inner city blacks should study harder and do better in school and move out to where the jobs are.

Suddenly when it is white miners and such we need job programs to bring low skilled jobs to them. Hell, inner cities with few employment opportunities could build schools, repair infrastructure and make solar panels.

To add insult to injury we watched an entire generation of inner city kid being incarcerated because of drug dependency brought on by their poor economic situation. Suddenly when white folks are in that situation with Meth and Opioids we have a dependency problem any they need help!

Sorry. Iím venting. I agree we should help any American in a bad spot. But the double standard sometimes pisses me off.
