"However politicians don't routinely recommended and rally

You never, ever hear those same people talking about rural
whites in the same manner. Nope, those “good, hardworking Americans” have been dealt
a raw deal, a bad hand; their poverty is a result of circumstances beyond their

and murder. There are big problems in the Black community, no doubt, but in a
very short period of time we’ve come a mighty, mighty long way.
