hi,

maybe i don't fully understand this email - but does the email suggest that 'poverty' is a construction ??

- sam.

ps. i know that this isn't a long email message. i just though i'd be 'different' !!! i'd also like to say something provocative. i feel that many of the messages are being posted by people in comfortable positions - people who just comment on culture - the commentators - the critics. but i guess those are the people in power ;)

Yes, you're right. I've been thinking this point of view...

I prefer too, for two reasons: 1. They don't have the destructive power who had in the past, 2. They are less hipocrite than Coke boys in Atlanta... upps!
