New York Post editorial board: NYC “too generous” to city’s homeless
The New York Post's editorial board has read the much-talked-about New York Times profile of Dasani, one of New York City's thousands of homeless children, and reached a typically inhumane conclusion: the little girl should be glad to have it so good.
For context, keep in mind that the conditions the Times describes are as follows: Dasani lives in the Auburn Family Residence, a city homeless shelter where "mold creeps up walls and roaches swarm, where feces and vomit plug communal toilets, where sexual predators have roamed and small children stand guard for their single mothers outside filthy showers."
The Post's response? "[Dasani's] mother, father and [siblings] aren’t really homeless at all. True, they live in housing meant for 'homeless families.' But their 540-square-foot unit gives them a solid roof over their heads, in addition to city-provided meals and services." What lucky duckies!
