The War on Poverty is a Lie

Racism skeptic? Look around. Social welfare legislation is one of the most glaring examples of institutional racism. Under the guise of ‘providing aid’ these laws, in effect, largely reinforce gross structural systemic race based inequities. American social welfare legislation was contrived to and has created dependence and a permanent underclass. From FDR's New Deal Aid to Dependent Children of the 1930’s, to LBJ’s “Great Society” anti-poverty program of the 1960’s, to the media’s role in reinforcing racist stereotypical “Welfare Queens” of the 1960’s to the 1980’s, to the Clintonian Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act’s (“PRWORA”) Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program (“TANF”), American attitudes about and the liberal promulgation of destructive social welfare legislation has been a veiled means of social control that undermines minority communities and furthers the economic and social subjugation of black America.
