We’re told that poor white people don’t exist.
Who do you think is getting sucked up in these tornadoes?
Black people don’t live in trailers, they live in government houses.
The names of all 23 victims of the fatal EF-4 tornado that ripped through Lee County were released on Tuesday morning.
Lee County Coroner Bill Harris announced that all 23 victims have been identified and were all released to funeral homes by 10 p.m. Monday night.
The victim’s age’s range from age 6 to age 89 and all resided in Beauregard.
In one case, seven members of the same family were killed by the tornado, Harris said. The family members lived on the same road in Beauregard.
All the photos haven’t been released, but the names look all white. Maybe one Mexican.
Here’s two of the dead kids:
Poor white people exist.
Which is reason enough not to be flooding this country with brown people from everywhere.
Reason enough to be seriously fucking angry about this little bit from Trump’s CPAC speech.
Following a chant of “build that wall, build that wall,” @realDonaldTrump said that the economy is going so well, new immigrants will be needed to fill the jobs being created, but he wants it on merit. Chants of “USA! USA!” followed.#CPAC2019 #CPAC19 pic.twitter.com/fzfdwU3m2j

My official position is “poor people are poor because they’re stupid.” And that is self-evidently true as a rule.
However, when it comes to poor people in rural areas, that doesn’t follow at all. These are people who live on their ancestral land, who lost their jobs due first to changes in farming, then to globalization. They are poor not because they are stupid, but because they refused to go live in a major industrialized city and become cogs in the machine.
Now they don’t have anything to do, and they are not stupid, so they get bored and start taking OxyContin or meth.
This is an actual crisis of our own people.
Aside from anything to do with race, it is simply obvious that we should be dealing with the forgotten Americans of rural America BEFORE EVEN THINKING ABOUT helping out the rest of the world – either through aid, wars or mass immigration.
And yet, you don’t even hear about these people until a tornado hits their trailer park.
It’s sick and it’s wrong.
