How old is this clip, and what are these folks doing now?
My grandparents did the same with not much more wherewithal. Except, they were both college graduates who took up farming in the early 1900s and who were nearly wiped out by fire, drought, and the Great Depression.
My grandmother managed to save enough money for one year’s tuition for each of the 9 children. Then, they worked to get through school and contribute to the tuition of those younger than they.
The oldest graduated from Annapolis, and the government paid his way. So, the money Grandma saved for #1 went to #2, and so forth. They all graduated and enjoyed professional careers, except the youngest who dropped out and took over the farm when my grandfather died. And then WWII intervened (with government controls on farms) and he never went back to college. He worked hard during WWII operating a dairy farm to supply milk, butter, and cheese to the Army.
I do believe the uncle who took over the farm turned out to be the wealthiest of the lot. But, as a bachelor farmer, he sold the herd and went into cotton as soon as the war was over; and the Govt. released him from his contracts.
I’m just saying that there are (or were) lots of people in this nation who started with nothing and made something of themselves. But, if you study the stories, you will usually find that divorce, alcohol, and drug use are not in their baackgounds.
Modern youngsters are really so very spoiled and expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter.
bump for later
Why do they have to add that? They make it sound like the *white man* was evil spawn of the earth.
My grandparents made about that same amount during the depression and they were not happy either but they didn't blame it on the evil spawn of the earth.
the family was starving because he was working for *white man* for 50 cents a day is not a petty issue to me.
If he said, "a white man that was a cheap a%% hole" I wouldn't have had a problem with it because that signifies an individual that happens to be white.
The narrator intentionally grouped a whole race of people up as 'cheap a%% holes' there by backing up the 'white mans world' that just isn't true.
This is the same type of loose talk that way to many brainwashed people has made Jewish people look bad. It is disgusting.
Hitler was proven to best speaker in history by fooling the masses better then anyone in history. What made him good was that less then 1% of what he said was evil.
It is a type of brain washing.
This was from the 1970’s, not far from the realities of segregation, the truth is White man did treat Black man like hell for a good long while. Deal with it.
it would seem the ‘white mans world’ concept has had an effect on you. I am sorry
I can’t watch this til Sun night at the earliest, but it sounds interesting by the reviews.
