Welfare: A Political Destroyer In The Black Community
Welfare by far, has been a destroyer in the African American community. It is a leading factor in the destruction of the black family. It is a system which was design to tear apart the black family, by allowing black women to receive welfare benefits only if black men were not present in the home. As a result of this, the welfare system in America, is like a drug in the black community, because it kills one’s desire to want to work, and become a productive being in our society. Just look around in any large metropolitan area, and, one would notice young girls running around with babies over the place and no responsible male present. I would argue that the African American community was better off without welfare and integration. In fact African Americans as a group, prospered more under segregation than under the welfare system of integration. During segregation, black daddies were at home. During segregation, blacks had more businesses and owned more land. During segregation, black schools and education may not have been as up to date, as the white schools and educational systems, but, black teachers cared enough, to be sure that black children could adequately read and write, before they graduated from high school. It was not like this system of integration, which only viewed black males as super athletes, super sex studs, and crazy criminals. When integration started in America, blacks and other minority children, were being taught by individuals who did not look like them. By individuals, who did not understand them nor their culture. By individuals, who despised them, and, saw them as inferior. By individuals who did not have their best interests at heart. I remember when I was in school, many of my Hispanic friends, got whippings from the teacher or sent to the principal’s office for speaking Spanish while on the school property. The welfare system in America is an unjust system, because it rewards negative behavior. Any system that rewards individuals for having babies out of wedlock and allows them to receive benefits for being lazy, and, takes from a man that is working, and gives to a man that can work but won’t, is a wicked system. For example, Mary Ann went to college and acquire her four-year degree in Nursing. She got a job at a large hospital, and, she lives in a nice apartment complex. She pays $950.00 a month, for a large size one bedroom. Living one door down from Mary Ann, is Jane Doe, who has two kids, not married, but lives in a large two-bedroom apartment, paying only $81.00 a month, because the government subsidizes the rest. A large two-bedroom apartment of this size would normally cost $1250.oo. The welfare system has just undermined Mary Ann’s efforts for going to college and making something out of herself. The welfare system in America must be cut or limited to one year. Young girls are not going to stop having babies, as long as they know that they can get on the system. It is a shame to see these healthy women on welfare, while at the same time taking care of grown men who do not want to work, and sleeping until 1:00p.m. in the day. It is a shame to see these women in stores screaming and cursing their kids out, while the grown thug is pushing the basket putting whatever groceries he wants in the cart. Welfare must be abolished in America, especially in the black community. Yes, I am very much aware, of the research which shows that there are more whites on welfare than blacks and Hispanics, but, African Americans and Hispanics, have much higher percentages, of being on welfare than whites. The black community as a whole, will never experience, true political and economic power, until it frees itself from handouts, from the government, through the social welfare state.
