When Poor People Attack!

One thought on “When Poor People Attack!

  1. It’s funny that, aside from the occasional platitude by Romney, the candidates do not mention the poor. People in America like to call themselves middle class. There is little appreciation or understanding of the social class system. There is also a denial of racial inequalities that are correlated with lower social class: higher illness rates, unemployment, incarceration, mental illness.
    The strategy of the Democratic Party to ignore the poor and to target specific demographic sectors is regrettable. The people – ah, the great middle class – has to wake up.
