“There’s so much poverty in America, not in spite of our wealth, but because of it.”

The article argues that poverty in America is not a result of lack of resources but rather due to the country’s wealth. The author states that the unequal distribution of wealth and power has led to systemic issues such as racism and discrimination that result in poverty. Furthermore, the article suggests that the government’s focus on corporate interests and tax breaks for the wealthy contribute to the perpetuation of poverty. The author concludes by calling for systemic change and a realignment of values towards social justice.
