This is seriously the most awful thing I have ever read.
In Camden, New Jersey, according to this article in The Nation, the local homeless encampment is the most orderly neighborhood. Unemployed residents smoke a drug called “wet,” marijuana soaked in embalming fluid. The only white people are hookers, many of whom are infected with AIDS, Hepatitis C and other STDs.
Is this the future of all our post-industrial cities in the United States, The Nation asks.
“The poor have to help the poor,” an elderly resident says, “because the ones who make the money are helping the people with money.”
How have we come to this as a country?
