Ever wonder why our economy is in the tank, or why our taxes are
so high, or why both parents have to work to support their
families? The answer is entitlements! The below report is a good
Sharon Jasper has been victimized. Poor thing... she has been
rabidly wronged. She has become a Section 8 care case -- the
victim of ever changing public housing policies. Sharon Jasper
has spent 57 of her 58 years dedicated to one cause and one cause
only, and has nothing to show for her dedicated servitude. She
has lived in Section 8 housing all but 1 of her 58 years.
It was a legacy passed down from her parents who moved into
Section 8 housing in 1949 when she was six months old. She has
passed the legacy down to her children, but fears they may have
to get jobs to pay for the utilities and deposits.
She laments about her one year hiatus from the comfort of her
Section 8 nirvana, 'I tried it for a year -- you know, working
and all. It's not anything I would want to go through again, or
wish on anyone in my family, but I am damn proud of that year.'
Sharon was moved out of her St. Bernard housing project after
hurricane Katrina and into a new, yet albeit, substandard
quarterage. As can be noted from the above photo of her new
Section 8 home, it is repugnant and not suitable for someone of
Sharon Jasper's seniority status in the system. 'Don't be fooled
by them hardwood floors,' says Sharon.
They told me they were putting in scraped wood floors cause it
was more expensive and elegant, but I am not a fool -- that was
just a way to make me take scratched up wood because I am black.
The 60 inch HD TV? It may look nice but it is not a plasma.
It's not a plasma because I'm black. Now they want me to pay a
deposit and utilities on this dump.' 'Do you know why?'
She has held her tongue in silence through the years of abuse by
the system, but it came to a head at the New Orleans' city
council meeting where discussions were under way about the
tearing down of the St. Bernard projects. When a near riotous
exchange between groups opposing the tearing down of St. Bernard
and groups wanting the dilapidated buildings torn down and newer
ones built, Sharon unleashed verbal hell with her once silenced
tongue. The object of her oratory prowess was an acquiescent
poor white boy in attendance.
The context of her scathing rebuke was, 'Just because you pay
for my house, my car, my big screen and my food, I will not be
treated like a slave!' and 'Back up and Shut up! Shut up, white
boy! Shut up, white boy!'
Recapping from the mental log of the city council minutes in her
head, Sharon repines, 'Our families have been displaced all
over the United States. They are being forced to commit crimes
in cities they are unfamiliar with. It is a very uncomfortable
situation for them... Bring them back, then let's talk about
Sharon directs the reporter's attention across the street to
Duncan Plaza where homeless people are living in tents and
states that, 'I might do better out there with one of these
tents.' She further lamented her sentiments about her situation,
'I might be poor, but I don't have to live poor.'
Any wonder why this country is in the shape it is? Maybe we
should all just chip in and get her the plasma TV she so richly
