Laws in economics are ha

Roosevelt testified that the “victim” who was white had consented to sex, which caused a near-riot in the courtroom. The all-white jury deliberated for only FOUR minutes. Later interviews with several jurors revealed that although they believed the act was consensual, they also thought that he deserved death simply for “messin’ around”

However, in the case of the poor, as a group, they are all too often seen as groups deserving of sympathy. In fact, when a street peddler holds out his hand, some people feel too guilty to pass him by without giving him even a little bit of change. After all, he is so much worse off than they.
