"No Conspiracy, blame Supply and Demand"
I am writing this letter in response to Tony Williamson’s Forum letter of Sept. 28. There is only one thing I would like to address at this point: the conspiracy theory.
Williamson asked why there are so many liquor stores and gun shops in poor black neighborhoods. I’ll tell you why: supply and demand. It’s very simple, actually, if there is a conspiracy at all, it is one of exploitation, not extermination. Business goes where there’s a market. As long as people buy guns and alcohol, there will be stores in that area to fill the demand.
If you have ever been to some rural “redneck” areas as I have, you will also notice a good deal of gun shops and liquor stores. But I seriously doubt anyone believes there is a conspiracy to keep down or eliminate rednecks. Think about it.
