A new report released this week shows that poverty is the worst that it’s been since 1965. The typically embattled Tavis Smiley spoke to the issue this week on CBS, stating that we should all be concerned about the problem, and not just in a fleeting sense. According to Smiley, poverty is the new slavery, and with the data being what it is, it’s hard to say that he’s wrong.
“America has, of course, made great strides for freedom in regard to all of its citizens. But now America has regressed, and poverty is the new slavery,” Smiley said.
