of course americans who live in poverty aren't "poor" when you compare them to uncivilized third world shitholes...
that doesnt mean that they aren't living shitty lives... they still starve and live in slummy conditions and often get sick
I heard a good phrase to say what happens when Americans say they're poor: it's rich folk who don't have any problems, so they make up their own (f-ing) problems. There will always be someone in Poverty, but in Kinshasa, there are folk starving to death, and in New York, there are not. That's the big difference, right there.
