Anyway, mental illness seems to be affecting Black Americans at a much higher rate than any other group of citizens in this city. Why is this happening? it is most notable in Skid Row where proverty really lives.
Tents dot the landscape as preferred housing. Below that is a blanket. Higher end is a car, then a van. Others are content just sleeping in their clothes on the bare sidewalk.
But that's the housing part. Mental illness, that is another story. It has affects on people who are not econmically challenged. I can be on public transportation and experience this problem.
Why is this occurring? Want is causing it? Too many of my people are having a menral break down and nobody seems to care? ,They have become the norm instead of the exception.
