Who cares where all the poor people go? I'll tell you. The people in this city who have worked hard to keep their neighborhoods clean and safe. That's who cares where the poor people go. The working class people who have families, children that we don't want to see destroyed by the elements who have come here with one solitary purpose: to destory this city. People who have been in other areas of this city for generations and who have managed to take some pride in what they've accomplished in those areas in spite of drug running, robbing and thieving garbage who claim minority status and then suck our tax bases dry becasue they refuse to work or even to learn the language of the country that's giving them a better life than the one they had in their little third world countries with names that nobody can say or even cares to learn.
That's who cares where they go.
We've got slums where there weren't slums in the past. And when these elements moved in those areas weren't slums. But they are now. Just goes to show exactly what these elements are made of.
Whites didn't make Harlem an unsafe place to live. And if you check your history books, Harlem was once a really great thriving place. Check your history and you'll find out when it became crime ridden.
It's not prejudice. It's documented fact. And if you can't take the facts, then you need to find a hole of your own to crawl into. Or better yet, move to Harlem or Bed Stuy and send the rest of us a post card.
