#REPOST Black clergy and orgs? They're given a stipend to do the work the city is supposed to provide but doesn't want to do. The city throws money their way and keeps it moving. Clergy and orgs that been feeding off this money for decades without ever having to be accountable or to show anything for it are suddenly expected to produce. They talk about Jesus til the money run dry.
Getting back to the Biddle House bid, $500k is a lot, but providing for the homeless is a 24 hour job that requires dealing with people with a variety of issues. They have to actually work for it. They ain't about that life.
Peep the city's response in Elliot's post... a prelude to my next post.
