Introducing the Eat the Rich Tee from Explore Block Island, showcasing a sustainable solution for combatting working class poverty on Block Island!  Many workers on Block Island cannot afford to eat at the restaurants where they work, they face low wages and high housing costs, and the conditions are terrible.  I can personally attest to what it's like to share a room with five other men and share a bathroom with 45 people.  Yet the land barons and slumlords on Block Island still prey on us, charging us through the nose to live in squalor as we serve caviar to the ultra wealthy.  

Even life long islanders who were born and raised on this island are being forced out by wealthy investors buying summer houses, or exploiting these single family homes for profit, turning them into mini hotels.  Because these morally bankrupt societal parasites wish to prey on our community, there are no homes left for the people who wish to live in them!  Even business owners are being forced out of their homes to make way for the gluttony and excess of tourists from New Jersey and multi-million dollar real estate corporations.  

Well, maybe if we eat just one, the rest will fall in line.  Here at Explore Block Island our solution is to Eat the Rich.  In public.  Maybe at Fred Benson's Nude Beach.  Let's make a day of it.  We'll set up a carving station, fire up a charcoal grill, and feast on the flesh of those who dared engorge themselves on our labor.  On our community.  On our island.  On our futures.  Let the smoky scent of the barbecue waft through the air and into the nostrils of these monstrous creatures, these pathetic parasitic predators, these hoarders of resources and enemies of the people.  Let them smell the cooking, burning flesh of their cowardly brothers and sisters.  And let them give everything back and leave with their lives, or stay and meet their demise.  

So kidnap your landlord, hogtie your boss, and break your local realtor's kneecaps and drag them to Fred Benson's Nude Beach where we'll have a barbecue for the ages!  Bring your hot sauce, your Himalayan pink salt, or whatever it is you desire.  Together we can rid this land of corporate greed and villainy and save our community from being bulldozed by the rich.  All we have to do is eat one, and the rest will fall in line.  👊
