Mr. Courtland Milloy in the Wednesday May 1, 2013 edition of the Washington Post states in an article describing the murder of a DC teenager in Ward 8:
“One is three black children live in poverty”.
“One of the boys who hung out with him [the deceased] told me that they had been looking for work, that they needed money. And not just to by sneakers. Having been kicked out of school, they no longer got enough food, the friend said”.
‘They wanted money to buy something to eat.”
Is there any more graphic statement of the deficiencies in our economic system?
