You should look at that classical work by Michael Harrington, "Poverty in America," where he explains how and why poverty is usually invisible in this country. It was the book that inspired the war on poverty fifty years ago. Georgia has always been been a poor state, although these days much of it looks more modern. That look can conceal a lot.

You should read the book “Dreams From My Father.” by President Obama. It describes the democRATic Party’s strategy of working to keep blacks mired in poverty. Obama describes it as “plantation politics” in the book. As a result of plantation politics practiced by democRATs, including Obama, the black community believes that government must do something for blacks.

What is not concealed in Georgia and other places with said poverty is the reality of the culture that perpetuates this poverty. Open your eyes.

There is nothing surprising or unknown about your remarks. We well remember Lester Maddox and some of the other interesting personalities that were responsible for the government in Georgia. Georgia poverty is the product or racism and the semi feudal landed aristocracy that took the place over after the state was stolen from Creeks and Cherokees. You can't blame Obama for the sorry record of Georgia history. Blame your own ancestors.
