1 in 3 Black or Native American Children Live in Poverty

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

And this is supposed to be the richest, best country in the world?  What utter bullshit.  While the Pussy Grabber with the dead rat on his head pushes massive tax cuts for the richest individuals and companies in our dis-united states, thousands of American children deal with poverty every day of their young lives.


Fuck Hillary and Trump.  And the current deciders, those assholes who label themselves republicans, who run the White House, the congress and the SCOTUS, are racing to take away health care from all the poor and middle class.

Taking healthcare away from thousands of Americans is necessary of course, because we need to use that money to build-up our military forces.  

So what's the real difference to life under Kim Jong Un or The Donald?

Ask a Korean kid who gets one meal a day.  Or any of the 1 in 3 Native American or African American kids who face similar hardships.  

Are you proud of your country today?

The analysis includes 111 countries, which account for 88% of the global population. We divided people into five income groups: People who are poor (living on $2 or less daily), low income ($2.01-10), middle income ($10.01-20), upper-middle income ($20.01-50) and high income (more than $50). The global middle-income range translates to an annual income of $14,600 to $29,200 for a family of four.

The U.S. stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world. More than half (56%) of Americans were high income by the global standard, living on more than $50 per day in 2011, the latest year that could be analyzed with the available data. Another 32% were upper-middle income. In other words, almost nine-in-ten Americans had a standard of living that was above the global middle-income standard. Only 7% of people in the U.S. were middle income, 3% were low income and 2% were poor.

Compare that with the rest of the world, where 13% of people globally could be considered middle income in 2011. Most people in the world were either low income (56%) or poor (15%), and relatively few were upper-middle income (9%) or high income (7%).

This is not to say that the U.S., along with other advanced economies, does not struggle with issues of income inequality and poverty. But given the much higher standard of living in the U.S., what is considered poor here is a level of income still not available to most people globally.

In 2011, the official poverty line in the U.S. was $23,021 for a family of four, or $15.77 per day per person (the precise poverty line varies by household size and composition). That is a fair amount higher than the generally accepted $10 threshold for attaining global middle-income status.

This means that many Americans who are poor by the U.S. standard would be middle income by the global standard, living on more than $10 per day. As it turns out, the $10 threshold is close to the median daily per capita income of U.S. households (officially) living in poverty: $11.45 in 2011, according to Pew Research estimates. In other words, more than half of Americans who are poor by U.S. government standards would be middle income when compared with the rest of the world. A fair share, however, would be either low income or poor, globally speaking.

Nonetheless, the majority of Americans are part of the global high-income population that resides almost exclusively in Europe and North America. These two regions accounted for 87% of the global high-income population in 2011 – only slightly less than in 2001, when their share stood at 91%. The rest of the world has a lot of catching up to do.

The article I linked caught my attention today. If you knew so many of our kids were suffering, why have you kept so silent? You right wing assholes are all the same -- instead of confronting and dealing with a real problem, you do all you can to divert the subject to one of partisanship.
So tell us wise guy, what should we do about the 1 in 3 black or Native American Kids who are suffering? Besides cutting school free lunch funding which fits right in with your party's theme of let's fuck all the poor and the middle class too!

Once again, well put.  The Republican motto should be "I got mine, up yours!"

Twice as many whites are considered to live in poverty than blacks.

How does that fit into your identity politics? With excuses in sure.

Thanks for another dumb response. Currently, whites greatly outnumber black or Native American children, so obviously there are more white kids in poverty. Too bad you're unable to perform simple calculations -- 1 in 3 (or 1/3) of black kids and Native American kids live in poverty. If that was true for white kids I've no doubt whatsoever white racists like you would be up in arms pushing for federal or state aid for these kids.

Come to think of it, your irrelevant response on this subject makes the same sense as the Pussy Grabber's claim that his attack on the NFL isn't racist.

Only all the players who are now kneeling during the playing of the national anthem were black. And now, after Trump's attack on their 1st Amendment rights, entire teams, black members and white are kneeling to protest police brutality and murders of black people which go on and are frequently "excused."

While you ignore blacks killing blacks... a much bigger issue.

This is why I don't know why some of ya'll are even talking to Pkr anymore.  He's too stupid to argue with. It's a waste of time.  He doesn't understand basic things, and he's incapable of listening to the explanations.  I wrote him off a while back as simply too stupid to talk to me, and I fully advocate that stance.   If there really was a block button on here, I'd use it.  

"Twice as many whites live in poverty as blacks."  Maybe... but that's because there are nearly eight times as many whites as blacks in America.   An intelligent person understands that that means blacks still have it a whole lot worse percentage-wise than whites do... but, to morons, it just ends as "twice as many whites are poor, so whites have it worse than blacks!"   They make the same dumb arguments with crime stats, etc.  and they think they're making some point.  But it's bullshit.  If you have 10 black people and 5 are poor, that's half, 50%.  If you have 80 white people and 10 are poor... that's twice as many whites, yeah, but it's only 12% of the total.  BIG difference demographically, which is obvious to anyone with an actual working thought process.

This is the kind of bullshit argument we're having to put up with here.  I really don't know why anybody's still interacting with this worthless fuckwit.  Most people here are pretty sharp, so it'd degrading to have to entertain these dumb interjections.   I see no benefit.

You use the exact OPPOSITE position concerning crime stats that show blacks commit disproportionate amounts of violent crime. Why no concern there? Poverty is largely self-inflicted. See: nature.

The issue of this thread deals with black and Native American children living in poverty. When schools in black neighborhoods have tiny budgets and black educational standards suck, and there are very few jobs open to black Americans living in poverty areas, how in hell is poverty self-inflicted?

Pkrbum, you really are too dumb to deal with. I'm outta here.
