Tupac Shakur Quotes

1. How could Reagan live in a White House, which has a lot of rooms, and there be homelessness? And he's talking about helping. I don't believe that there is anyone that is going hungry in America simply by reason of denial or lack of ability to feed them. It is by people not knowing where or how to get this help. Why can't he take people off the street and put them in his White House? Then he'll have people from the streets to help him with his ideas. Not helpless! Homeless! Not helpless. They haven't been homeless forever. They've done things in society. The White House would be tainted because he doesn't want to get dirty.
