There are two Habitat houses on the Newport Hwy. They belong to "whites". People who have lived in the area for years refer to those two houses as "slums for bums". They have created a "two house" slum.

Project Malachi is part of Greene County Habitat for Humanity's Habitat Hearts program to raise money to build handicapped-accessible bathroom for two-year-old Malachi Taylor!!! How did you insensitive troubling making asses make this about "Race" or "Bums" ?

Nice work on this project, but Habitat won't be getting any money out of my pocket, as most of their houses go to help people who are willing to help themselves. They have a group who goes out and interviews potential recipients of new homes. In the process, they can't give negative marks for such things as there are 18 cartons of cigarettes on the table and beer cans everywhere, they have satellite TV and a new 60' TV, etc. There should be things that they look for that determine if the family is doing everything they can to help their situation.
