See, see how terrible capitalism is?
The proles noted that poor folk had cars, how rich Americans must be:
It’s still more than an hour before the Saint Luke’s Food Pantry in Tupelo opens, but already more than a dozen cars are lined up in this corner of northeast Mississippi, the state with the highest poverty rate in the country.
By the time volunteers start handing out food in this December morning, six rows of cars will have filled the small lot — with dozens more parked on the road waiting to get in. By noon, the pantry will have served 559 cars.
Volunteer Lee Stratton says it’s been like this virtually every day through the pandemic.
“Lot of people coming,” Stratton says. “People need help, you know?”
They’re actually measuring poverty by how many cars turn up.
