    Yea If poor people want $ they'll get off that couch and go do something about it.

    I remember when I was poor... $8.25 an hour work 60 hours a week still can't afford a damn thing besides bills.

    But rich people were born rich though...and it wasn't by luck or good fortune either. You can work hard as you want, you'll never have more wealth than them. Money doesn't fall out of the sky.

    Yes there are streams of wealth being passed down
    through generations, created by lies, theft, murder, and every other sin
    imaginable.

    Karma (which I dont believe in) may actually be giving these folks diseases and
    misfortune despite their wealth, but one will never know or can prove it.

    Even if that was all true, that still doesn't redistribute the wealth the rightful heirs or to the ones
    that truly need it. You gotta focus on your situation and figure a way out.

    Outside of school, and working your way up the ladder, you can also try to
    forsee what ppl need/will need and invest in it/create it to forge a
    new stream of wealth for yourself and your descendants. Its not easy but as we all see, its possible.

    And if your initial plight pissed you off enough and have a sense of community
    with your self identifiable people group, you can invest in the, and crate a framework to
    duplicate your success among them and improve the lives of others.

    im typing too much now...

    American majority are too docile and comfortable even while poor to really revolt against the rich and cut their heads off

    There are many families that are wealthy due to the work of slaves. They acquired land and were able to get loans for mortgages and other properties. Its unfortunate but it is what it is.

    Almost 80% of current millionaires are first generation millionaires, so that isn't true.

    You do realize 80% of millionaires are first generation wealthy though, right?

    @crcballer55  The Millionaire Next Door was a great book, finished it last week. Going to read it at least once a year from now on.

    Subscribe to his blog (his daughter runs it now since he died last year). Principles still apply and some good and relevant stuff.

    Trickle-down economics doesn't work.

    Reaganomics ****** all of us.

    Blacks will never receive any sort of reparation whatsoever, don't even count on it. Silently hate white people and boss your life up.

    Allow them to keep you in mental chains and you will never flourish.

    B.S.! Living in a high-middle class neighborhood with money for college and decent public schools is WHITE PRIVILEGE awarded by the legacy of slavery. Google white flight and its effect on poverty.

    Bs? There was a 20 year study conducted on millionaires which proves this is true. The study also revealed that high middle classed neighborhoods are filled with people that aren't wealthy and have low net worths compared to their income. Most millionaires live in middle class neighborhoods in homes that cost 300K or less and buy used cars.

    Lol can't fathom that people become wealthy in one generation huh? Change of mindset takes you a long way.
