Yesterday, on an abortive run to the new Fat Ho Burgers in town, I happened to look at a local high school campus as we drove by. My mood changed from "I'm hungry and we'd better agree on a place soon", to "Holy Mother of God, there is a 'social services' building on that school campus". It hit my outrage meter and pegged it.
I had just slummed through the ghetto of Waco, seen the new public housing, chain link all around it, flash cars out on the street, pits of despair, and now I am faced with what could be termed an inner city school because it serves in a black and Hispanic district and there are two things that you can think when faced with a building that says "Social Services" building. It is either the building where they teach the brighter of the ghetto dregs to work at McDonald's or perhaps, if they are lucky, be clerks down at the welfare office, OR, it IS the welfare office... on the campus of a public school. Because, let's face it, none of these kids is thinking Peace Corps or Licensed Counseling Social Worker, okay? This is a campus where they have a Crimestoppers Club on campus.
They have approximately 16 "College and Career Readiness" counselors in a school that has a 66% drop out rate. They have a pregnancy rate of 37%, with teen girls with multiple children at about 16% of that. For most of these kids the only useful education they get is down at County Juvenile Services. I've seen what a useless pit that is, from both sides of the courtroom. I tell you this much, work 2 months of any juvenile program and you will give up all hope for the future. Only heavy drinking and re-reading of certain books will even get you up to "pessimist" ever again. These kids know more about the streets, and yet have no idea who pays to build them, because they are taught in that self-same "social services" building that they are entitled to it because they are black, brown, female, retarded, and a victim.
Let me make this perfectly clear, none of those people working in that building have any intention of "helping" you out of your location, class, or stupidity. They want you totally dependent on them and Momma Gubmint for the rest of your and your childrens lives because it means a bigger budget for them, which means more power for THEM. Not you, just them. You are merely a number, added to many others that they use to justify their budgets.
And don't tell me you bitches don't work the system. I work in places where it's common to hear scum, just like yourself, talk about how you cheat the system, by getting every benefit imaginable and still work and get money, while your baby daddy of the day drives around in your car, spending your money. Yeah, you're really getting over, honey. Work it, keep working it. Think about it while you're out looking for your next baby daddy because the old one is in prison... again.
We don't need Social Services buildings on school campuses. We need classrooms filled with good teachers teaching them reading, writing, math, science and most importantly, a history that does not reinforce societal lies that they are victims and are owed something by everyone who really works. We need these people to learn self-reliance and they are NEVER, EVER going to do that while you hold their hand telling them how victimized they are. Kicks their asses and tell them to go out and get a damned education and get a job and don't ever look back at where they came from unless it's to assure themselves that they got out and need to stay out.
Nobody ever won anything by pissing and moaning all over themselves, playing the victim. Why? Because of people like me who see them there, rolling on the floor, and I kick them. Why? Play the victim, be the victim. I'll give you something to cry about. And trust me, there are more people like me around than any of us would like to admit, especially to ourselves. I despise you because you think that you can get something for nothing, you've been taught that same thing. All people like me do is re-educate.
I haven't posted much lately because it's Spring and like anyone else, I like the weather right now. However, I've been busy since deciding to rewrite my book and it's nearly complete in my head and now I just need to "take dictation" and get it all in a written, coherent form. I'll be giving you sneak peeks soon, so stay tuned. Then go down to University High and heckle the retards through the fence. Odds are, they're too stupid to do anything about it. I mean, they ARE waiting in the welfare line... at school.
