UA Success Story: Star Parker

Leslie Brown

It has been about fifteen years since I read Star Parker’s autobiography. I still remember how inspiring it was, so I was eager to refresh myself on her story, and share it with others.

Star Parker broke herself free from the chains of seven years of welfare dependency to become a leader who writes and speaks about the enslavement that occurs at the hand of a system designed to “help”.

She has written several books including, Pimps, Whores and Welfare Brats: From Welfare Cheat to Conservative Messenger, Uncle Sam’s Plantation, and White Ghetto.

Star Parker is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit think tank which promotes market based public policy to fight poverty.(1)

Star has a BS degree in Marketing and Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues. She consults with Republican legislators on numerous urban issues, has lectured on anti-poverty initiatives at more than 180 colleges and universities and serves on the advisory boards for several national organizations.(1)

Star believes as we do here at Unhyphenated America, that society’s ills are largely based on poor moral choices, and that the only way to right ourselves as a nation is to follow godly principles.

Uncle Sam has developed a sophisticated poverty plantation, operated by a federal government, overseen by bureaucrats, protected by media elite, and financed by the taxpayers. The only difference between this plantation and the slave plantations of the antebellum South is perception. If anyone works their way off of the plantation and denounces it, they are called “uppity” or “sellout” or even “Uncle Tom.” Instead of a physical beating, defectors are ostracized in the public forum.(2)
