Thursday, October 9


Ward Six has been added to the list of areas which will ban single sales of liquor, yet another move - like the closing of the downtown homeless shelter - aimed at ridding the city of poor black males. The move is inherently discriminatory - the only people affected are those who can't afford a six pack - but since discriminating against someone because they are poor is perfectly legal in our society, no one even stops to think about the prejudice involved. At the very least Tommy Wells and others should move to ban single sales at bars and restaurants as well so the gentry will know how it feels. Or perhaps create a few jobs in this city for other than the gentry so the targeted group can afford a whole six pack.
