    immeasurable disadvantages of children being born poor and impoverished in the United States?  How are such children irreparably disadvantaged mentally and academically in comparison to children who are solidly middle, upper middle, and upper class in terms of life, educational, and socioeconomic opportunities which they are unlikely to have?  How does being poor and impoverished causes these children to gravitate towards gangs and other delinquent activities, subsequently ending in incarceration?

    If not, how does being poor and impoverished lead such children to dangerous, damaging, and even illegal occupations? Some poor and impoverished children enter such dangerous arenas such as boxing and even more dangerous, even illegal such as the drug trades to get out of poverty.  What makes such parents knowingly bring children into such a world where the odds are stacked against their children?  Only analytical, intelligent answers as to the inherent pathologies and evils of impoverishment.  Also present clear answers regarding the poor and impoverished adopting a more positive mindset and accepting responsibility and being accountability for their and their children's lives.

      While poverty paces a strain on children it is an error to feel they are all doomed.  My mother grow up absolutely dirt poor, trained as a teacher, and now has two professional daughters with PhDs.  her very poor upbringing taught her to be self-reliant, hard working, and socially conscious. meanwhile the children of middle class and wealthy parents I went to school with were mostly cruel, shallow and entitled.
