I agree; unfortunately for whatever point you have been trying to make, I never said anything of the sort.Quote:
What I am saying is that it is not white and black, and we cannot assume because someone is unemployed or uneducated that they are "lazy drunks".
What I did say is that the United States has a large population of people who are lazy, uneducated, and arrogant. There is even a lot of individuals who are all three.
There are jobs out there that require a strong back and stronger will, but a lot of the populace are too lazy for that kind of "back breaking" work.
There are jobs out there that require an advanced education, but a lot of the populace just doesn't have sufficient skill to manage that job.
There are jobs out there that require rummaging around in the muck or reveling in the danger, but a lot of the populace are to arrogant too want that job.
You can't pretend that it isn't the case, or rather, if you do pretend that such isn't the case for a lot of the population, you are guaranteed to perpetuate the problem.
It isn't just a stereotype perpetuated by other countries to make us look bad. It is a real problem. This is a problem that we need to fix.
Your example doesn't apply to this problem, nor does it apply to anything I've said. Both girls have problems, both have support, and both are likely to fail. Neither of them, according to your example, dropped out of school, are too lazy to rely solely on the public for support, or unwilling to work for it. Sure, one of them is better off than the other, but you example is lacking a sufficient case of scum. I'm talking about the individuals that are far worse than these two girls. I'm talking about "GirlC" who didn't want to graduate because "she isn't worried about that sort of thing", doesn't apply for jobs because "the government takes care of her", and is unwilling to work because she is "entitled to support".
There is a great difference between the lazy, arrogant, and uneducated individuals who are a plague upon society and simply those whom are down on their luck.
