We had 6 children shot in 7 days… the past coupla weeks all we hear about is additional ways to criminilize black children like additional curfews increasing their chances of encounters with the types of officers who posted offensive FB posts are who are on Kim Gardner’s list. Or the national guard who refer to us as enemy forces.
The result? Not to invest in our young people, but to continue to throw money at Better Family Life to create jobs for those who live outside our community and those who exploit the condition on our young people for profit…. under the guise of helping us.
The worse our young people’s condition gets, the more money BFL gets, more jobs created in the nonprofit sector to keep that money in the nonprofit sector.
