If You've Never Lived in Poverty, Stop Telling Poor People What They Should Do

Saturday, September 09, 2017

By Hanna Brooks Olsen, Everyday Feminism | Op-Ed

SNIPPET:

In the US, we have become so accepting of the fact that poverty is not a symptom of a grossly unequal economy, or the result of numerous systemic failures, or the product of years of trickle-down economics, but instead, that the only thing standing between a poor person and the life of their dreams is their own decisions, their own choices, and their own failures.

This is why I would advise any person whose immediate reaction upon hearing about a friend, relative, or stranger on the Internet who is living in poverty is to offer unsolicited advice to hold their tongue (or fingers), at least long enough to consider what other forces contribute to poverty and how their "help" may actually be insulting, incorrect, and downright damaging.
