Whitey on the moon - gil scott-heron

I left this comment at youtube:
It's a great bit of art, but here's something that was true when Martin Luther King said it in 1967 and is true today: "In the treatment of poverty nationally, one fact stands out: there are twice as many white poor as Negro poor in the United States. Therefore I will not dwell on the experiences of poverty that derive from racial discrimination, but will discuss the poverty that affects white and Negro alike."
