I think that it is horrible that

1 in 4 Black Americans are poor

1 in 4 Hispanic Americans are poor

1 in 7 Desi Amercans are poor

1 in 8 Asian Americans are poor

1 in 10 Arab Americas are poor

1 in 6 Americans are poor

It is also surprisig that poor people produce more babies than the rich people. I am not sure how they feed, house and cloth their family. I am sure over time some kind of a solution will be reached by humanity, on what to do about the poverty situation. Until then, the poor people will continue to rely on handouts and welfare. It is very demeanig and hurtful to the ego to ask people for a handout, but I have seem plenty of people do it. I am sure that no one wants to be poor but you know how nature is. There is abundance in one corner of the globe and famine in another. I pray everyday to natrual forces to end the pain and misery. I am sure there will come a time when humanity will no longer have to suffer on planet earth as they will have become extinct.

In some sense the animals are doing much better than humans as they do not have to wear perfume or cloths or have to shave or clip their nails. It is strange that human nails would grow so large that you would need nail clippers to reduce their size. Anyways, enjoy and have fun while you are on this planet.

With all the privilege it should be more like 1 in 100, but 30-million is still a big number of whites who are poor.

Poor is when you don't have a job and a family to feed. The money received from Welfare is not enough to pay rent and buy grocerries. Poor is when you wake up every day wanting to die. Poor is when you don't have enough food to eat. Poor is when you can't afford medical care.

I am very poor. I am not able to find a job even though I have a college education and years of work experience. I was recently diagnosed with Schizophrenia and tried to commit suicide by overdoesing on painkillers. It did not work, I just got horribly sick and ended up in the hospital. My parent currently support me but they are old and can die any day. I constantly worry, what I will do when they pass away. Where will I live? How will I feed myself? What will I do?

On the bright side, I don't have a wife or any children to take care of, so that is good thing. Otherwise, I would be even more stressed out. I feel like things are totally falling apart. I am afraid to drive a car now, fearing that it will break down on the highway. I am afriad to talk to people, fearing that they might reject me. In any event, I have another 30 or 40 more years to live based on the life expectancy charts. I pray to god everyday that make my life less misirable and end the pain.

I even tried to buy a gun to shoot myself with but that did not work. My parents would not allow me to keep a gun in the house. I am telling you this cause it eases the pain to share what happened in my life. Thank you for reading it. I believe that at some point all humans will be free of suffering, regardless of the kind of life they have led.

I heard that there are around 100 million poor people at North America.

I also heard that there are around 35 million unemployed people at North America.

Don't be stuck at Mexico, United States or Canada. I mean the continent.

I think you are more than white paint. I think you are Human {Man, Woman, Boy, Girl} White {Clubs that you belong to}.

Over 10,000 years, the nations, religions, professions, languages are clubs with membership. The wild animals have waged a war against the human species over the diet. You know what you had to for lunch, right, so do lots of other things.

We think with the election of Barack Obama, Bobby Jindal, Bill Richardson, the pain of the black, desi, hispanic people has become much greater. You know, your cousin got that job, that chick, that million dollars, that big house. How about you friend?

Everyone can be happy, sad, laugh, scream, crazy. Yes, sir. You need to tell the people around you what you know. Then we are more consistent like the Vultures. Be happy.

People have given us biofeedback, good and bad. It ain't so bad. It ain't so good. Everything will be normal in many days. The white people got to keep the arab people employed as worker, manager, director, vice president, president level for the oil dependency issue. It's nothing. We seek out the hard truths. We have given millions of lives to nature to know the truth. Who should we trust? Who we should be careful of? We think Human species balances a little something. A wild animal will eat the balance then it's nil. Later we will evolve.

Nature asked us to travel to the airport and ask the people that will give us the time of day and ten dollar. The cop would not. The black man would not. The arab man would not. The oriental man would not. It's about the future. My people ready to sacrifice 1000 million people to prove something about your group and the wild animals.
