They lived in overcrowded and sometimes shabby apartments and rooming houses in “ethnic”neighborhoods (ghettos?) where they eventually built homes and businesses. They became the middle class when workers organized and they finally were paid a living wage that allowed them to have benefits and pensions and soon become consumers of autos and electronics—which then stimulated more growth.

Yes, yes I know you’re referring to a racial stereotype—your descriptions and use of “ghettos” makes that clear. Here on GREEKCHAT we don’t traffic in insults or put folks down for their race, religion, sexuality or socioeconomic place in life.

So crawl back under your bridge...and spread your nastiness elsewhere.

What is stopping the poor from doing that today? Plenty of jobs in tech, computer science, healthcare, biotech, pharmaceuticals, engineering, robotics, banking and finance.

Can you tell me ANY system with ANY leaders where the poor will be successful? Pick any system you want, use it in your town, own the results and stop making excuses.

What is stopping the poor from following Oprah's lead?

I am looking for solutions. You obviously prefer never ending excuses.
