"They are throwing us back into depression."

Birmingham, Alabama

In a declining industrial district of Birmingham Alabama the Smith family talked about the lack of jobs.

“We are barely making it, all of us pulling together…you can’t live by yourself” explained Vera.

“They are throwing us back into depression.”

Keynnon didn’t think the election would change their situation.

“Presidential wise, they don’t know me from you. Hell no, not to me, once they get in. They make promises now, but anyone can tell a lie, you feel me?”

Cornette added, “They ain’t caring nothing about us for real, they are caring about their pockets.”

“As long as they living good, we living bad.”
