I happened to recall a recent conversation with my father on the amazing amount of premiums that he has to pay for auto insurance in West Philadelphia.
I wondered: "How much is the Negro On Media Street With The 'Voter Id Is RACIST(!!!)' Sign Paying For Insurance On His Cargo Van?"
I did an on line quote using his approximate address.
$335.87 for ONE VEHICLE.
The insurance company is CERTAIN that you are going to file a claim at some time during the first 2 years. They are doing what they have to do to MITIGATE THE RISKS that they are exposed to. In this particular community with the propaganda messages so strong - they clearly do not know how to MITIGATE THEIR RISKS by sculpting the proper consciousness into the agents who are most likely to steal this JingOists truck, causing him to file a claim.
He would be better off buying 2 vehicles, parking one in a covered garage and getting Liability only for the vehicle that he is driving. If he crashes it up he can discard that one vehicle and start driving the other.
Do you see how COSTLY the act of NOT HANDLING YOUR BUSINESS IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITY is?
I bet if you talked to this man he would swear that White Republicans are sneaking into his community in the middle of the night and stealing car radios or popping ignition locks, just to drive up the cost of living for Black folks in da hood.
If I told you that I insure 3 cars and pay less than $200 per month in a "racist" area of the South - would this convince you that - it is quite possible - that this man on Media Street in West Philly is worrying about the wrong thing?
If he was serious he would walk right down the street to the "Universal Bluford Charter School" and assist Kenny Gamble in making sure that all of the students in the school focus on being productive citizens, in support of their community. If he is not down with charter schools - he could walk in the other direction to the "Mastery Academy" (which, could be a charter as well - now that I think of it).
What exactly does this person in West Philly actually have to benefit from scaring Black people?
