It is unfortunate that many people still characterize welfare as a way to make poverty look desirable, to make laziness acceptable, to make teen pregnancy more attractive. I doubt those people have walked down the street to see many men and women working two jobs and are still unable to afford the rent and food and school fees for their kids. I doubt they have stroke one conversation with the people in the “ghetto” without judging the way they talk, their occasional misuses of words and grammar, or the clothes they wear. I doubt they realize that the cycle of poverty starts from families and that they are looking down at other simply because they come from a very lucky place to even talk about meritocracy.
