State government makes Rhode Islanders’ lives less fulfilling

Rhode Island is stealing our opportunity to fulfill our potential and be self-sufficient. We’re becoming increasingly dependent on subsidies from government, jobs remain scarce, and the state’s latest programs are designed to make things worse.

Here’s one indicator of increasing dependency: From January 2007 to January 2010, the state added over 60,000 residents to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP; “food stamps”). Over the next three years, nearly 50,000 more joined, bringing the total to nearly 181,000.

Pale People

Lyrics

Pale people got white privilege
Pale people got white privilege
Pale people got white privilege
These days

They say we can’t see it
But they know it’s there
We got to talk about it
Just to show we care
If you got pink cheeks
Around a slender little nose
You get a silver spoon
It’s just the way it goes

Well, I don’t want no white privilege
Don’t want no white privilege
Don’t want no white privilege
‘Round here

“White privilege” is just a phrase to signify
That you’re superior
To other whites who think they’ve had to strive
But that’s just more proof

Pale people got no grievance
Pale people got no grievance
Pale people got no grievance
That counts

Could be disabled
Mom and dad might be drunks
And all the gatekeepers
Treat you like a leaky skunk
You mighta grown up poor
Your face is ugly as sin
All a’ that ain’t nothin’
To the color of your skin
It don’t matter what
You think you’ve overcome
Don’cha take credit
For the things you’ve done

‘Cause I don’t want no white privilege
Don’t want no white privilege
Don’t want no white privilege
‘Round here
