Welfare checks are typically issued on the 1st and 15th of each month. And I’m sure many of them end up here. You see, in the hood, there are no banks or savings…just predators trying to get every last dime. How we allow so many check cashing and liquor stores in the hood always amazes me. In my opinion, both are evil…but I also understand the benefits they provide. The liquor – to drink away the pain and frustration of poverty and all that comes with it. And the check cashing – why would they ever trust a bank when they’ve neglected these types of neighborhoods for so long. This is the world we live in. And I guess people can keep on ignoring the fact that inequities exist.
