  1. I lived in Pittsburgh and worked downtown for 12 years...while I was there, I was a member of a do-gooder organization called "Christmas In July"...during the month of July all the members (many of whom were tradesmen and contractors) fixed up, renovated, cleaned out and just generally spruced up residences in the Hill District and Wilkinsburg and the North Side and numerous other areas that have fallen into disrepair since the steel mills moved out...as you can imagine, these neighborhoods are probably about 99% minority. I've also worked in Columbus, Cleveland, Atlanta and a few other cities...I've worked for a couple pretty large CPA firms over the years and we had clients everywhere.

    However, I also worked for a minority-owned CPA firm in Pittsburgh for a few years too...small place...I was the only true whitebread person there...the only other white-looking person there was actually half Hispanic...his last name was Vargas. The one partner was an ivy-league educated black man who went to school on an academic scholarship...very smart dude...and his diet was just as messed up as the rest of the urban folks...so, it's a more of a cultural thing (from my observation) than a lack of education...he definitely knew the right thing(s) to do and he could absolutely afford to make the right choices...he just had a hard time choosing them! haha
  2. In the final analysis, most people do not make poor food choices because that's what they want ... seriously, do you THINK people like being fat and out of shape??? Give them a little credit and try to wrap your brain around the fact they make the best choices they can based on their education and what is accessible.

    And FYI, try spending a few weeks in a city. I think you're kind of naive about the way the world works. Come to Philly for a few weeks, discover the joys of the various boroughs. North Philly should open your eyes a little.
  3. did you know that you can use your access card at the liquor store?? <------ this is a crime against humanity! also, there used to be grocery stores in those neighborhoods (in pittsburgh...my only substantial metropolitan experience) but they moved out because they kept getting robbed, etc.
  4. Digi, when was the last time you drove around Philadelphia, a couple miles around the city limits. Do you realize there are NO grocery stores? NONE. Try living off of the food available in convenience stores. There IS no fresh produce, no frozen veg. It's like another frigging planet.
  5. i get my data from observation, personal experience and dr. michael eades...
  6. you're saying the same thing that i am...empty calories are not nutrition...instead of buying cheetos and pepsi, buy hamburger and green beans...you'll eat less, you may not feel full, but you'll be fed...it's about choices...and public assistance provides enough to make the right choices.
  7. BTW, empty calories are not nutrition. I have owned animals all my life. Buy cats crappy cheap cat food, free feed it. You end up with fat cats with health issues. Switch the same cats to high quality "gourmet" food and still free feed, they consume a fraction of the amount of food and lose weight. Same thing with humans. Not to mention the fact that study after study has proven sugar may very well affect the brain exactly like heroine or cocaine. Have a little heart, man.
  8. Digi, I love you but you've got blinders on when it comes to this particular issue. I won't debate you, watch the movies, read the book, or let us agree to disagree and remain friends, agreed? If you won't even give the subject review with an open mind and scientific support then there is no way to discuss it without it turning ugly
  9. no...you're wrong...they don't NEED all those calories...that's why they're fat...you don't have to walk away from the table feeling full...you have to walk away from the table having consumed all of the calories required to keep your body and brain functioning properly. also, if you're obese? you've already reprogrammed your brain to overeat. thus, in order to conquer your obesity, you will need to get used to walking around feeling a little bit hungry all the time...probably for the rest of your life...and most people don't have that kind of fortitude. but, i couldn't disagree with you more. fat people consume more calories than they need...that's why they're fat...and almost every poor person in the u.s. is fat...they make poor choices when they go grocery shopping...they equate "feeling full" to being properly nourished...and they over eat to feel full. they need to consume less carbohydrates...and they can choose to do so.
  10. You're wrong.

    Take $1, go into a grocery store, buy the maximum amount of calories you can for that dollar. You do NOT get those calories in the produce aisle, you get them in processed foods. I'm telling you, READ the book "Stuffed and Starved" Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System: Raj Patel: 9781612191270: Amazon.com: Books

    Or at the very least, watch the documentary on Netflix, A Place at the Table.

    Look, poverty goes hand in hand with malnourishment. In developed countries, the poor and malnourished are obese. In third world countries, the poor and malnourished are underweight, it's the SAME THING. It's just in industrialized nations where cheap calories are easily accessible, the poor can fill their bellies with cheap sugary, fat and carby crap because we give them less than subsistence level amounts of food stamps and in impoverished countries they simply have nothing.
