Imroatus Rahman's insight:

I think all whites should reunite in one big nation. They think that they are unfairly treated from the black people. This nation could be either Canada or Australia. Both has very high percentage of white people, very low crime, and high life standards. If other whites from South Africa, USA, Brazil and Europe move to those 2 countries, just imagine how perfect those places will be. Canada and Australia must revive white immigration laws so that nobody except than whites can move to those lands.

I wonder if Government were to do something about their economic, since there is such cases of people stress to death, due to poverty. I didn't expect that psychological effect could affect people with poverty. I wonder how this effect could affect people?

Example, how to overcome poverty etc. Plus, i didn't know that poverty can affect one's health. but, i wonder why and how it can actually affect one's health?

The Truth About Poverty

Is poverty a choice? How do the rich and powerful keep the poor down? How do we help the poor? What is the truth about poverty? A follow up to Stefan appeara...
Imroatus Rahman's insight:

I believe much of what you are saying about poverty is true. But I also see people losing their homes and their incomes falling while the rich are getting richer. I'm sure you can find status for just about anything but I also think it is not ridiculous to say things like "if a poor person just marries her boyfriend, she would be lifted out of poverty". Yes, it can really lifted out of poverty, doesn't mean you are poor means you are stuck in there. You can actually find ways to get out of poverty and become rich one day. It takes effort... and if only life was simple...
