I would have to agree with Mario F. in the regard that you seem very focused on only the USA and are not recognizing the rest of the world. Take this example of the black woman who Mario F. mentioned his post, and then you responded with the above quote.
You paint a bleak anecdote, but without context on how she arrived in her current situation, it's somewhat pointless. Never given a chance? Did she have a chance not to have children she couldn't afford? A chance to do better in school? So that perhaps she could get a scholarship at a university and have a better life? Is there not financial aid that she could take advantage of now to learn a skill or trade?
