Who Is to Blame?

by Margaretta Ogletree

Being poor recognizes no limits of race, no prejudice or certain times to strike. Can we create a game plan to survive? No, because each is so busy taking from one another. And the first thing we do is blame it on the white man. But we're wrong. When we had a chance to make it, we misused the system and started hurting ourselves.

Now we hurt each other with violence. Has the devil succeeded in destroying our planet?

He planted a seed and it grew bigger and bigger. It gave birth and it's living among us. Self pity has no shame.
