the last book I ever read (Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City, excerpt six)

from Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond:

Trailer park residents rarely raised a fuss about a neighbor’s eviction, whether that person was a known drug addict or not. Evictions were deserved, understood to be the outcome of individual failure. They “helped get rid of the riffraff,” some said. No one thought the poor more undeserving than the poor themselves.
