So, what if you clicked on Al.com one day and you see your beautiful, smart, articulate, happy, daughter, who is neither hungry or low income, pictured as a poster child for hunger and poverty?
I just looked at all the pics of the kids.
When will the black community of Huntsville be shamed enough to take care of their own?
First the Funk:
In a media enabled public relations offensive, I mean campaign, to paint themselves as human beings, I mean, compassionate, Huntsville City Schools has been patting themselves on the back because they accepted funds from the same federal government they are currently fighting in court, to fund a summer feeding program to feed lazy blah folks who need the government to take care of them.
"We will have the highest number of hot meals served to kids in the State of Alabama for the second year in a row," Vaughn said.Now the Facts:
The program, funded mostly through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, was implemented last summer as a way to supplement the meals that children from low-income neighborhoods receive when they're not in school. It offers three free, hot meals to children 18 and under from anywhere in the city, whether or not they are enrolled in the school district.
Unfortunately, Huntsville City Schools walked all over the truth in order to spin a positive image of themselves. Reading this article, and clicking through pictures, gives the false impression Huntsville is the Black Belt region of Alabama, teaming with poor black children, being bussed to schools day in and day out, to get a hot meal.
Cue in: Give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
Not. Most of the pictures were taken at Girls Inc., and the majority of the girls are not low income, they just happened to be participants in a summer program, which happened to serve breakfast provided by the summer feeding program. Parents were asked for permission to use their daughters' image to promote Girls Inc. Imagine their surprise when they saw them being used to promoting the summer feeding program.
The "feeding program" is just another way our socialist government is training this generation that dependency rather than self sufficiency is the accepted norm.So in addition to most of the girls in the pictures not being low income, or hungry, the summer feeding program occurred in places other than Huntsville City Schools. In other words, they took the meals to where the children were, and not necessarily to low income children.
Parents need to take care of their kids. It is not the governments place to do it.As you can see from the comments, the false narrative gives the impression all African American's are lazy, shiftless, baby making, drug dealing, thugs, who want the government to take of them, when nothing could be farther from the truth.
A few less beers a few less manicures. And these kids will continue the pattern.
