Did you know this story was about surviving on $272?

Did you? YES OR NO.

Try doing the math of $272 divided by every single working person in the USA. That’s roughly 300,000,000 people paying a fraction of their check towards that $272. Even at 1 CENT, that’s 272,000 people paying 1 penny.

You are pissed, that you have to pay, and this BLACK woman doesn’t. I suppose to you, she shouldn’t MONKEY IT UP. You like that racist banter? You like the dangling keys?

You pay because you have lots of money. In general, when I was able to work, African-Americans paid 1/3 of their bi-weekly check into taxes, while whites paid 1/5. This was not always; just general. The basic upper-lower class income brings in 25K a year. That’s not much. Do the math and stop being so privileged.

A catch-all topic based channel without restraint. I’m about shedding light through the fog using compare & contrast, mixed with reasoning, and personal views.
