Earlier today the African American Leadership Forum held a celebration of sorts in the beautiful "Windows on Minnesota" in the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis.

I wonder if any of the participants could see the Blue-Tarps on houses in north Minneapolis?

poverty pimp
Any social worker, do-gooder, social service agency, or faith-based organization who comes into a hood not their own and plays at being the savior to folks that don't need savin. Expects said folks, most often minorities, to be grateful and happy and do all that is recommended. Poverty pimps do this in place of supporting real community organizing of the people who live in these communities to solve their own issues. Poverty pimps often directly benefit financially from pretending at saving people and communities, usually based on their job. Most often interested in keeping people from dying, but not succeeding.
The man on the street corner walked up to the white, older social worker who came from a rich neighborhood and was slumming in the hood and called her a poverty pimp.
