As I read the comments below, I find myself in total agreement with many who call you a national treasure. There are way too few women and especially black women who have the common sense that you have.
I am grateful to you for having the vision that you have found in your recent years and more than that, have the integrity to voice the things you've learned since your "welfare" days. More power to you and please continue to attempt to reach all those people that need to hear the truth from you.
Your article above is one of your best and I'm sure comes from your heart.
