Open Letter To Community

Open Letter To Community

Dear Editor;

The storm that you’re now hearing throughout your neighborhood is from the so-called politicians who are once again seeking our votes. This time, I hope when we go to the polls we’ll have a vision and a comprehensive agenda vividly expressed.

I say this because I am sick and tired of the politicians who in my opinion are nothing more than fraternal prostitutes for corporate America. Once elected, our agenda in Public Housing will then go to the bottom of the list, which leads me to believe that we are nothing more than pawns on a chessboard.

Speaking of being used, whatever happened to the vagabond who is from the Coalition to Save Public Housing? What’s his name? Oh, it’s Ed Williams. Now that he’s been rescued by the political arena, he no longer shows interest in our community. Since being upgraded to the title of Congressional Representative, he turns a deaf ear along with the others on the panel whenever I speak about the problems of our youth. After all, they are the future of tomorrow.

Who knows our children better than we do? This is the reason I have always opposed the government taking the rights away from the parents to discipline their children. We know the difference between abuse and discipline. Make no mistake about it because this is no accident. The same children that you and I are not allowed to discipline are the ones the system wants to try as adults. Look back at slavery and connect the dots. Keep them dumb and you can keep them under control. How dare you or I wonder why they’re building more jails than schools?

So once again I reiterate, we must go to the polls with a comprehensive agenda that’s vividly expressed. Racism is nothing more than a distraction away from capitalization, dollars and cents, powers-to-be, and control.

J.T. HOLLAND
