THE 10 BIG LIES PEOPLE TELL ABOUT POVERTY IN AMERICA
People have a lot of misconceptions about poverty in the United Staes, but thankfully Mother Jones compiled a list of ten big ones that get repeated a lot and debunked them.
1. Single Moms Are The Problem
"Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child's first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child's father for that entire time."
2. Absent Dads Are The Problem
"Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly."
3. Black Dads Are The Problem
"Among men who don't live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids' lives."
4. Poor people are lazy
"In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult."
5. If You're Not Officially Poor, You're Doing Okay
"The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America's cities and regions."
6. Go To College, Get Out Of Poverty
"In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor's degree."
7. We're Winning The War On Poverty
"The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011."
8. The Days Of Old Ladies Eating Cat Food Are Over
"The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012."
9. The Homeless Are Drunk Street People
"One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless."
10. Handouts Are Bankrupting Us
"In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget."
Shootings on the Northwest, Near North and South sides left at least 10 people hurt since Saturday night, according to authorities.

ya gotta read news papers from other cities around the country and da world or actually travel to other cities as I do in business.
no other city has more black people killed by other black people than Chicago has.
over 500 people were killed on the south side of Chicago last year,. that's one calendar year.
if you check new papers records you will find that several thousand blacks have been killed by other blacks over the past 10 years on the south side of Chicago. crimes unsolved & many uninvestigated.
please show us any city in America in which more people were killed by unregistered guns in the hands of blacks in any time frame?
Detroit was a close second in black homicides but the death rate has lowered in Detroit in recent years.
the only other cities in which high death rates occur are in the middle east with that tired old suni vs shiete nonsense.
gotta do some reading and research here Mike.

Whatever keep it to yourself.
If I were you I'd concern myself with dealing with the problem instead of comparing other places.

"Whatever keep it to yourself.

U would address the problem by your words above? If so, UR the idiot.
Arm the citizens and those homicide #s will reverse dramatically.
Read and understand post # 22 and ask the Fascist Star News what happened to post #s 11, 18, 19 and 20.

Then the black who is sick of my comments has to begin to change the south side.
I don't think blacks read these comments. There is little or no empirical evidence of black involvement.
unless you hold a mirror up to the people causing the problem how do you propose to change the situation on the south side of Chicago?
what have you done or what would you do if you cared?
people have got to face the reality of what's happening now in da city.
or you can just ignore the obvious and let the killings go on and on and on.
but if you do nothing and say nothing when or how does it stop. does it take the national guard to go into the hood?
will there be a civil war when the blacks run out of other blacks to kill?
how many thousands have been killed on the south side in the past 20 years not a peep
out of anyone in the national press, federal state county city law enforcement?
if this many people had been killed anyplace on the planet surface 60 minutes or some one on TV would have done a special on why the killing in such a city?
I was born and raised on the south side and I am sick of what has happen to this once proud area of the city.
where al notso Sharpton or other pretend black leaders?
where is the black community?

Chicago will declare bankruptcy by March 2016. Another Detroit. The democraps/socialists.......... the negra big-ears spear-chuckers have drained every dollar out of the area. That's why all the business has been lost which causes people to move.
Chicago is now the walking..........dead......... .soon to be
entirely dead. Why waste more $$$$$$$$$$ etc. to clean the area.
Use cyanide gas. Hitler's Zyclon to deal with the South Side.

NOT all hardened criminals are black/African American! Hardened criminals come in ALL colors. White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, no race or color is immune to criminals.

Unfortunately as it appears, Chinatown (Chicago) is also a very bad, high crime area.
