$273K devoted to combatting Goth kids
KCTV-TV 5 Kansas City |
"Almost half of a $273,000 grant awarded in 2002 to fight the Goth culture in Blue Springs has been returned because of a lack of interest - and the absence of a real problem. Blue Springs received the grant two years ago from the Youth Outreach Unit, money the city and U.S. Rep. Sam Graves trumpeted proudly as a way to fight a perceived Goth problem. But $132,000 of the grant was returned because officials never found much of a problem with the Goth culture... About halfway through the project, the focus shifted from Goths to counter cultures and negative influences facing children."

Damn right, what a crock of shit "battling "goth" culture".

Being a member of many counter-cultures currently, and having been considered a "goth" kid (I wasn't, but people liked to lump kids into that category), I am almost offended that tax money would go to fight AGAINST that.

*shakes head*
