Thank you for the post, such a sad lonely world we live in! all the aid agencies around the world, all the rich people around the world, nothing ever changes! people are still starving! homeless are still homeless! the sick are still sick.

On occassion visiting the local medical clinic, I'll sit and watch the people jam packed like sardines waiting to see the doctor, come out go to the pharmacy dept, collect sack fulls of meds, but no one ever seems to get cured of thier ailments & they are all back next month for their next sack full, It really makes me fed up!. we keep hearing of all these new cures!!!! but then they are to expensive.

Truth is we man dosen't care for man! Man just cares for himself.

Sorry found this video to be a stereotypical video of the wealthy white man abusing the poor.
4.5 minute video of the suffering of man and not one picture of Obama. Plenty of shots of the white politicians running for office appearing to be ranting, but not one of the current administration or any female or black politician.

When will everyone look at the numbers and realize that their party has abandoned them. When will they realize that the greatest power we have is to unite. The government (of any color) wants us to be at odds, to divide us to create two sides. That wealthy people do not want one united front against them and their government protectors!

You saw what you wanted to see. The vid depicted "those in power" regardless of race and it just so happens that those who suffer the most are minorities and the majority of those in power are caucasian. To place a picture of who would satisfy "your" agenda does not maximize the impact of what is being said. What you point out is what divides. The message was plain "We are ALL ruled by evil men, and the people are waking up to that fact".

It is those whom are in power that do not care, a lot of the "common people" (you and I) do however.

I strongly disagree, it is you that sees what they want you to see. What power is Mitt Romney, just because he has money that makes him a suppressor? This video is furthering the cause of seperation and you are buying in.

They have convinced you who the villian is. The stuffy white man and his society of friends. That may be true, but what is anyone doing to change it. Ever heard of the word Incumbant? Now why do we keep voting in the same people that are making people poorer, widening the divide between rich and poor. Are we voting them in? They do it by creating a divide amongst voters. Creating the boogey man. What a perfect storm, a 50-50 split amongst the voting public. That way they can do whatever they want. Put in whatever candidate they want and how would we ever know if they really won. If everyone thought the election would be close, its hard to argue with the outcome. Why do you think they have narrowed down who can be on the ballot and why do we have so few choices? Why does the main stream media always choose one of the spoon fed candidates to support?

So when you say I see what I want. You are correct, I see a video showing people that it wants to blame. Again the great divide. I do not see anyone that currently holds power in the video. No Pelosi, No Reid, No Boehner, No Obama, No McConnell, No Congress. Is it not these people that have the power to make things better? Not a ranting politician trying to get elected.

Has this administration done anything to eliviate the pain of the poor. Has any administration? Quite contrary, more people are poorer than ever! How can these people get elected broke and come out multi millionaires while doing public service work? Why, because they were paid for following orders. Why has the middle class just been stripped of their wealth? Why are the prices of everything poor people or people of lessor means need costing so much; gas, food, heating oil and other basic necessities. But hey we get a payroll tax cut and that is all that is reported. Hey look at us fighting for the little guy, getting him that tax cut. Looked at the equity in your home? It's gone.

Why not show pictures of white people helping black people, blacks and whites hugging, working together. Hispanics and blacks working together. Asian populations helping Irish Americans? Why not show that in many instances the races come together and help each other. Do you think it is because that never happens. No its because no one wants you to believe it happens. I would never let a kid or his family go hungry in my neighborhood, regardless of race or color. I am not unique here, that image and that story is in neighborhoods across the nation. But that does not fit into the great divide theory.

The change starts on the bottom floor. Us. We have to create our own message. We have to go color blind and start helping each other. We have to form a common message. If black people want better conditions they will only achieve that by being my partner not convincing themselves that I, the middle class white man is the enemy!
