The plight of the homeless

Well, not so much the homeless – but the plight of those of us unfortunate enough to be stopped at a red light right next to where a homeless man (or worse, a homeless woman) is standing.  Unless we have a morsel of pre-packed food to give him, we may be subject to pangs of guilt no matter what we do.  If we give him money, we know he is likely to spend it on alcohol or drugs.  If we give him nothing, we may castigate ourselves for doing nothing.  While some of us may donate to organizations that help the homeless, there is nothing quite like face-to-face giving.

This in mind, I have decided to put together small packets of food and other necessities.  Inside the packet will be a leaflet that has a positive message that the recipient is unlikely to get elsewhere.  It could be, for example, a message about HBD or a statement of positive identity for whites.  Though most of these messages will go unread and end up as rubbish on the street (where somebody else might read them), some might actually get read by the target audience and open some minds.  In this way, we can accomplish two good deeds at once – and guilt will be a thing of the past.

    I know that BANA has followed this approach and it seems like it has had a powerful impact in their community.

    When I was younger, I used to feel remorse and guilt for the homeless guys on the corner, but then I found out that a good portion of “homeless” people are just scamming for money. Not all, of course, but it was enough to make me feel disillusioned. Nothing will tear down a person’s goodwill and generosity faster than the devious taking advantage of those traits.

    Give McDonald’s gift cards. Its more expensive but you know it won’t go to drugs.

      A gift card is a wonderful idea but maybe it could be to a restaurant other than McDonalds? I hear the food at McDonalds isn’t the healthiest
