poor people are lazy

black people are more likely to be poor

black people are, as a whole, lazier than white people

there, i typed it out for you so don't have to do it yourself

Again, whenever you want to dispute the validity of how laziness and poverty are intertwined, feel free to speak up. Otherwise, all you have to say is a tired tactic of screaming racism when you have nothing to stand on

Ahh yes, more with the mind reading... Of course you know what everyone thinks better than they do themselves.

Please enlighten us all more with your clairvoyance...

capitalism necessitates that a percentage of the workforce be unemployed, and tons of people are unemployed on the heels of "the great recession." poverty is unavoidable, and attributing it to laziness is p fuging funny considering you can actually work for a living and still live in poverty, and odds are if you're "working poor" you're working way fuging harder than some dipshit hedge fund manager

anyway yeah if your argument is that poor people are lazy, and you acknowledge that black people are more likely to be poor, you are essentially saying that black people are lazier than white people. you are disregarding a wide range of factors that lead to poverty and prevent upward mobility

statistically black people are overrepresented in poverty

this is like very, very basic stuff here and if you aren't even aware of that then i don't have a fuging clue why you'd get involved in a thread titled "remember, race has nothing to do with it..."

durr hurr who said black people are more likely to be poor hurrrrr

Poverty and race/ethnicity

The US Census declared that in 2010 15.1% of the general population lived in poverty:[30]

9.9% of all non-Hispanic white persons

12.1% of all Asian persons

26.6% of all Hispanic persons (of any race)

27.4% of all black persons.

try the US census

Funny how you use percentages when it fits your argument and total numbers when that fits your argument. 9.9% of whites is more people than 27% of blacks... 26% of Hispanics is probably more than 276 ot blacks... But you go right ahead assuming that when someone makes a comment they're automatically racist against blacks, because hey, It's what you do.

You are far worse about making baseless assumptions than pretty much anyone on this board... Especially when it comes to you "explaining" what someone else means or is thinking.

Some poor people are lazy... Most are not... Some middle class people are lazy, most are not... And so forth... I would hazzard to say that rich people, especially those with family money are the laziest... Because they can afford to be.

explain to me how the raw number is more valuable than the rate in this discussion

1 in 4 black people live in poverty. 1 in 10 white people live in poverty. when someone asserts that poor people are lazy, and they acknowledge that black people are more likely to live in poverty, they are literally saying that black people are inherently lazier than white people. there's no getting around it.

i hope you didn't waste your money on a STEM degree, assuming you went to college (which in and of itself is a hell of an assumption) because goddamn you're helpless when numbers are involved

it is obvious for anyone with eyes to see that lazy persons are FAR more likely to be unemployed and in poverty than otherwise. take that any way you like.

ah yes "lazy persons are FAR more likely to be unemployed and in poverty" and of course black people are more likely to live in poverty, therefore:

He said lazy persons are more likely to be unemployedand thus poor... You are the one that brought in black people to his post...

Raw total numbers in this instance certainly make more sense to look at for your silly argument... Especially since you've completely left the Hispanic demographic out of it...

Yes I have a college degree, maybe when you graduate middle school what some of us say on here will make more sense to you.

Again, if you simply don't wish to answer the question, be honest about it. If someone is lazy, what are the chances they will be poor in America. If they work hard, what are the chances they will be poor?

As for capitalism necessitating an unemployment rate, you are now down to yanking that poo straight from your ass. Does anyone actually buy your brand of bullshit?
