Two women are sitting drinking coffee over the kitchen table, and one says to the other,

“Gretta, what would you do if you found a million dollars on the street?”

Gretta thinks about it for a minute and says, “You know, if it was the property of a poor person I’d give it back.”

This admittedly fictitious exchange as the virtue of being emblematic for how a lot of Americans seem to be viewing “poverty”, these days.

Dr Thomas Sowell, in an interview from a few years back discusses this important topic. The program runs about 45 minutes.
