To Be A Minority & Poor In Small Town America

I grew up in what used to be called Pyramid Courts, which is now named Leroy McBride.  In these projects, I had some of the best times of my life.  It’s quite disturbing to read about the despair of the current residents.

Reading the article (the link is below) disgusted and angered me.  To read how those that are poor or less fortunate have been marginalized and their voice silenced further demonstrates how being a minority and poor is a double negative.

If you are disturbed as I am, please contact the HUD regional office and demand prompt action be taken to remedy this atrocity!
