I think what this article is saying is that why when this kid is poor is using an iPad which could of bought him school clothes and food. Poor people (of all races) tend to buy things they don't need in lew of things essential to life but then want to complain how poor they are. I hate when I see poor people wearing Jordan's. Or nice jewelry or have rims on their car. Don't complain about being poor if you're not gonna use your money responsibly. Maybe there's a reason they're poor, mismanagement of funds. I say this again, people of all races do this.

No they are saying that poor people are poor for a reason, they make bad financial decisions and we should be fronting our hard earned tax dollars towards a family that isn't going to put it to good use. I make 60k a year and I don't own a damn ipad. They need to make themselves aware of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs:



Thank You. I thought I was the only one with any sense in here.

I work for a Bank and YES, 90% of poor people are poor for a reason. They make horrible financial decisions.

It's always most evident during tax season. Im so tired of seeing people who struggle to pay their bills every month, get a tax return and the first thing they do is buy a Louis Vuitton bag or some rims.

Instead of using their money responsibly, they waste it and are right back struggling, overdrawing their account the next month.

It's sad really. Then I'm supposed to support these dummies with my tax dollars and they living more lavish than me.

All the money the rich suck out of the system and people are worried about a 300 ipad? The money going to people abusing the welfare system doesnt amount to sh*t.

This is why I think working at banks lets you see way too much, I used to work at one too and I did my best not to make a.ssumptions or judge.

You sir are an as*hole. But I get what your sayin'

People do realize that most people in public housing with rims put them on 2000 $ cars right? So lets add it up 2000 for the car + 1500 for the rims = 3500$ are these people serious? So 3500 is > than a 20,000 car off the lot? They put rims on old cars their car rims included comes up to about a years worth of car payments on a ford focus.
vs buying a 2000 car and NOT buying rims. you make it sound like that's smart.

Now this is just crazy.. I take my daughter to my friend's place who stays in the section 8 housing in houston texas and she sits outside the door just like that playing on her Ipad or she will just sit on the trunk of my LEXUS or inside the back of my BENZ with the liftgate opened while playing on her Ipad. I wouldn't want someone to stroll along and take a picture of her and make up a story about the low income families without knowing the full story. When I saw the pic I said damn my daughter does the exact same thing and when I'm done dropping off items to my friend we leave. smh judge someone based off a picture. Also Ipads get stolen and resold at crackhead prices in every city just about being at the right place at the right time. smh

But really now, I was at the grocery store and I see this bi*ch pay with $250+ dollars worth of groceries and is short 50 something cents and she is using EBT to pay for it and this bi*ch turns around and has the fu*king audacity to say "Can you pay for the rest, I'm a little short...".

I looked at this bi*ch like


I just payed for your whole god damn 2 carts and you want me to finish paying for the rest?


Meanwhile, the whole fu*king time she was on an iPhone.

This whole sh*t is fu*ked up. Never have I been so heated in my god damned life.



In short, yes. fu*k POOR PEOPLE. You fu*king lazy scumbag pieces of sh*ts.:nasmad:

So you payed for her groceries?

But yea reminds me of a time this n*gga came up begging for money to get something to eat...at that time I must have been more compassionate and offered to buy lunch at tacobell...this bi*ch n*gga said I don't like taco bell can we go to McDonalds...

fu*k that sh*t man u must not be starving. Another time someone came up asking if I could buy them gas so they could make it home. I just told him I didn't have any cash on me.

You're riding around in the parking lot asking people for gas money when you could be making your way to the house.

And why would a stranger ask someone to buy them groceries. They need to budget, stay within the fu*king budget or put something back! I had something similar happen to me. Some bi*ch asked me to pay for her sh*t. I thought, you came to Wal-mart to shop with no intentions of paying for it yourself? fu*k outta here. You gotta a better chance of shoplifting then getting money outta me for that sh*t.

This some bullsh*t!

I have an iPad and my little sister has learned how to add subtract and read on this bi*ch! She's only 5, if anything they need to give every kid in the projects one loaded with educational sh*t
"them" folks won't like the sound of an educated project kid.
