The news is on the TV and for some reason I didn’t turn to another channel, and CBS aired this completely enraging segment on the poor pitiful white middle class and rising tuition costs.
And I just saw this middle class white woman saying (in reference to the middle class being the “forgotten class), “There are great programs for the poor…” - because she and her husband are paying a lot for their kid’s college tuition and fees.

Seriously? More and more people are falling towards or beneath the poverty line, hunger is a serious issue here in the U.S., I’m reading articles about people who are living in their cars or on the street and can’t get money so they can eat or have clothes and this privileged fuckfaced woman is telling us that there “are great programs for the poor”. Millions are getting sicker and sicker or DYING because they can’t afford to get to the doctor or their meds or what little health care coverage they get isn’t enough.
But you think there are “great programs for the poor”.
Having a welfare and entitlement system doesn’t mean it’s great. And the fact that you don’t know how shitty it is in your own country tells me how privileged you are and that you’ve never had to try to seek help.
I swear to god I thought she was going to talk about everyone but white people getting college scholarships next.
