Hollywood’s flawed views

Re: Tofaeono Hollywood’s take on poverty 

Are hungry poor little children poor and hungry because they are lazy?  I don’t think so. Small children and babies are people too. 

You have a very flawed, right winged ideology, when it comes to your reasoning as to why people are poor.  Very simplistic, black and white. Sad for you Mr Hollywood. Most of the people I’ve read about aren’t complaining, they are just stating fact. Not sure what you are hearing.

Are you projecting something about them having a flawed character to justify your guilt about being too cheap, and greedy and too lazy to do something to help them?

 I’m not going to give you a free ride on these simplistic black and white views either. I have seen what happens when you ignore minds like yours thinking they are just too ridiculous for people to pay attention too.  You get a rise in hate groups like the Tea Party in the US that has just hijacked the Republican Party. People who think like you get to vote too and if you don’t speak out against their black and white thinking before you know it; they are creating policy. 

I don’t think people should ignore you just because they think you are ridiculous. It may actually be dangerous to people in society like the poor, the disabled, the gay etc. to ignore you, so I won’t be passive while you project your hate views on the vulnerable.
