Suddenly it’s cool to be poor? A boring and trite observation if you’ve ever been an artist, a minority, a student or an average worker in America.

suddenly-it-cool-to-be-poorWelcome call to the rest of the nation who has been living on extended credit, myths and too close to the TV set. We’ve always been poor, it’s just you are now too.

We’ve been reading with intrigue how the upper to do always well (except when there’s a financial crises) have been lamenting in the press how they can no longer buy their jewelry, and are now forced to scout for $10 handbags. It’s hilarious for most of us who’ve ever contemplated a career as a peace worker, an artist or any other job that doesn’t dispense with gregarious bonuses. Then again if you go talk to anyone who lives in the ‘ghetto’ or is a minority it really isn’t new news to them, they’ve been living on 3 for one toilet paper rolls ever since you got your first taste of make believe.
