I added the Latina part. I know Maria Fernandes struggle. it is my struggle. it’s probably some of yours too. remember this when folks say working poor don’t work hard enough and that’s why we are poor. 

In the Victorian, they were called the “deserving poor” and only the deserving poor were given aid. They forgot, I suppose, that to work, a person must eat. So no one can be deserving if they don’t get assistance of some kind.

I despise classicism. This notion that people would willingly starve rather than work is preposterous and wicked.

Hunger is one of the worst feelings. No one willingly endures that. No one. And pride is an important thing. No one willingly allows their pride to be crushed unless they’ve been told they aren’t entitled to have any. Success begets success, but if a man has never known it, he has no idea what to seek.

All people are equal, therefore all equally deserving of help.
