Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

US child homelessness on the rise: 2.5 million children in America - one in every 30 children - go to sleep without a home

The number of homeless children in the United States has topped its highest in recent years, reaching to one in every 30 kids, a new report says.

The report titled "America's Youngest Outcasts," issued by the National Center on Family Homelessness revealed that almost 2.5 million children were homeless at some point in 2013 in the United States.

The new figure is based on the Department of Education's latest count of 1.3 million homeless children in public schools, supplemented by estimates of homeless pre-school children not counted by the department.  PressTV

Using findings from numerous sources that include well-established national data sets as well as our own research, we rank the states in four domains, and then develop a composite of these domains to rank the states from 1 (best) to 50 (worst).
