Exploding Crisis For
America's Poor

By Frosty Wooldridge
Have you ever walked through a ghetto in America? Did you see the looks on the faces of the inhabitants? How about their children? Did they understand their plight? Did you see the drugs, fatherless kids, despair, violence and hopelessness? I have because I was an elementary teacher in the ghetto. It's worse than Elvis Presley's famous song, "In the Ghetto." That's ghetto grows by leaps and bounds with America's illegal immigration invasion.
Today we suffer an emerging crisis so great it promises profound upheaval across America. Black unemployment trends show sobering findings: "By 2002, one of every four black men in the United States was out of work for over a year. This idleness was twice as high as that of white and Hispanic males," according to Andrew Sum, director for the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston.
"That was a conservative count," Sum said. "The study did not consider homeless men or those in prison. It is believed that 10 percent of the black male population under age 40 is incarcerated."
Worse, black teenager unemployment grows off the charts. In a report in the Associated Press, May 1, 2003, by Genaro C. Armas, "Black Children in Deepest Poverty Up 50 percent," states that 932,000 children fell into the poverty level in 2001 which was an increase from 622,000 from 1999. It's the highest number since 1979.
Each teenager out of work follows the adage, "Idle hands are the devil's workshop." Teen crime in U.S. cities grows with the unemployment epidemic. That creates accelerated use of drugs and sales of drugs. The pushers create systems that addict kids on the streets, which in turn create crime for want of money to buy drugs.
They move into evolving gangs reported recently in USA Today. MS-13 Gangs with 8,000 members now operate in 28 American cities. They distribute drugs, run extortion rings, operate drive-by assassinations and recruit new members. The former Attorney General Janet Reno of the United States estimated 500,000 members from all gangs now operating in this country. Education, or the lack of it, is a key player because 44 percent of black men do not have a high school diploma according to Professor Sum. This leads to public assistance, social services, crime and anti-social behavior.
Not mentioned by Professor Sum in his report is the devastating impact of this emerging crisis being exacerbated by an average of 4.1 million legal and illegal immigrants added to the U.S. workforce annually. Most arrive in the United States with skills no greater than two hands. They outnumber America's poor. They colonize jobs. They possess Third World desperation for work. They work under the table, which allows their employers to pay no taxes or pay no worker's compensation costs.
Illegal and legal immigrants have grabbed all the cabbie jobs. They've stolen all the landscaping jobs. They've commandeered paving, construction, masonry, lawn mowing, dry wall, roofing and hotel jobs.
They're sweeping all our floors for corporations, eating up our fast food jobs and washing all our dishes. They work all our farm jobs, pick our fruits and drive tractors as they work from dawn to dusk.
And get this, the line from the Third World of willing illegal aliens who will do the jobs that Americans supposedly won't do, grows longer. You have to ask yourself at what point will there be any jobs left that Americans will do?
Are they supposed to immigrate to the Third World countries to find work? What is the point of our Congress outsourcing, insourcing, offshoring and immigrating this country to death? What about our working poor? When will our Congress speak to our country's issues?
Write me for that 20-point action plan on how to stop this illegal alien migration madness. Remember that each of us creates 'critical mass' to stop this insane loss of our nation and its ability to function as a sovereign country.
