SORT BY Relevancy
Of course you know that poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase the criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans.
Karen Dolan exposes the facts about a national crisis in a provocative report, The Poor Get Prison. This report provides an understanding of the growing ways in which those in poverty are disproportionately targeted, marginalized, and prosecuted.
Karen Dolan is a Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies and directs the Criminalization of Poverty Project. Karen also assists the Economic Hardship Reporting Project.

The show will explore the hardships that many working Americans face daily earning minimum pay. These Americans are often victims of systematic forms of usary and encounter difficulties rising above poverty lines. Does God have a plan or are christians supposed to remain in poverty? It is often said that Jesus was made poor so that we might become rich. What does that mean for us as Christians today? Jesus also said that the poor would be with us always, so how do we distinguish between that scripture and what God wants us to have? We will examine ways to transform the lives of the working poor while exploring the biblical principles of tithing, giving and receiving.
Please join us Sunday at 10AM CST as we discuss the high cost of being poor. The protests across America has brought to light how Blacks, Native Americans, and Latinos are unfairly targeted with broken windows policing. This creates a system that is sustained by fines and fees that perpetuates white supremacy.

WHY ARE POOR PEOPLE POOR AND RICH PEOPLE RICH? TONIGHT WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT SOME THINGS THAT YOU HAVE ASKED YOURSELF OVER AND OVER AGAIN. WHY ARE POOR PEOPLE POOR AND RICH PEOPLE RICH?
IS IT BECAUSE OF HOW THE RICH OR POOR ARE PARENTS RAISED THEM OR IS IT BECAUSE THEY HAD MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE?
THE ANSWER I GIVE YOU MAY UPSET YOU, BUT THERE IS A REASON WHY THE POOR IS POOR AND THE RICH IS RICH.
Today I will be exploring whether welfare for the rich has the same implications as welfare for the poor. Last night Bill Maher said the following.
"Republicans are right," Bill Maher said "Not having to work and getting free money does mess people up. That's why they love to talk about work, the virtue of work, the right to work, workfare, the dignity that comes with work.
In fact there is only one thing conservatives believe in more than work. And that is the God given right of rich people to leave all their money to their kids so they never have to work a day in their lives. ...
I mean think about it. Republicans are on board with taxing people's income, their investments, property, food, gas, booze, cigarettes, everything you buy, even your retirement. Those are all OK. But the one thing that must remain tax free is when money falls from the sky and lands in the lap of [explicative] Hilton. ...
If the tough love of cutting off free money for the poor is the right thing to do how can we stand by and do any less for the Conrad Hiltons of the world. They've never known the dignity of work either. Shouldn't we be helping them by taxing inheritance at one hundred percent?"
