I should mention the interviewer later said that they had to stop filming at certain points in interviewing these kids because he kept choking up.
I really can't rate this. Not without feeling like a jackass.
On the one hand, American media never really caring about poverty until a bunch of entitled middle class shitheels lose their worthless to society jobs, thus losing their closed off stuck up lifestyle is offensive. On the other hand, maybe this generation wont grow up to be hateful bigoted garbage towards people with less money than them.
But that's just a possible silver lining to something that should have never happened to begin with.
I hope things get better. I hope they don't get any worse.
Great, now they just need to talk about the cost of living in the USA and how millions of people are scraping by on their wages, barely able to save money and plan their futures - much less those of their children. I don't think we're just ignoring the problem, in fact I think lots of people are paying attention. We're just too afraid of asking "Why?" - that would bring up terrifying questions about our society... and probably our economy. Terrifying for the indoctrinated, that is.

Sometimes I wish the whole system would collapse, bringing the rich down with everyone else. But then I realize how horrible things would actually need to get for that to happen.
The sad thing is that I'm beginning to wonder how far we are from where the system collapse results (crushing poverty, homelessness, lack of services & support) and it not being all that different from what's here now, for the majority of Americans.
It's a bit like healthcare, where the GOP and the rich douches behind them say "Obamacare is going to destroy healthcare" without seeming to realize that millions of people don't even have any healthcare in the first place.
Sometimes I think that it won't be worth rebuilding when it does collapse.

I made it through 6 minutes, and had to stop watching. Regardless of the "who is poor and why" debates, too many times I saw this in the field. To see more being thrown into the mess, I wonder where it will all go with the apathy of the rest of society, save 15 minutes on a news program.
good fucking god
