It's Always the Poor Who Get Hurt the Most

"_____ Over the past several years, a specific phrase keeps popping up. You see it whenever the corporate press talks about any sort of economic issue. They always point out that "[insert issue] disproportionately affects the poor." Most recently, it's been the virus. You might see it phrased this way: "Poor and underprivileged are hit hardest by the effects of the coronavirus." But just a few weeks ago, it was police brutality. And before that, it was inflation, or voter registration, or job loss, or any other bad thing in the world. Now here's the thing. They're right. Bad things DO hurt poor people more. That shouldn't even be a surprise. Because if you're poor, by definition, it means you don't have the same means to protect yourself from bad things. But the problem here is, they aren't stopping at identifying a problem. They're insinuating--or outright stating--that the reason these people are poor is because of rich people. So the people who have figured out a way to protect themselves from bad things are the ones responsible for bad things happening to other people. This mindset is absolute poison. But it's ruling our world today. So you must first recognize that it's a lie. If you're poor, it's not because of someone else. It's your fault. Recognizing and identifying the problem is the first step to fixing it. Being broke is temporary. Poverty is a mindset. But even further, you need to recognize why the media is promoting this mindset, so that you can protect yourself from the ultimate consequences of it.
