• 1 in 5 DC Residents Below Poverty Line

    BTS producer Ameera David reports from Anacostia, the backyard of the nation's capital. It's a part of Washington D.C. seldom seen by the public eye, and it sheds a light on many communities in DC which are experiencing the highest rate of poverty in 30 years. But ironically, these also happen to be the communities overlooked by the lawmakers who are just steps away. This is "taxation without representation" at its finest.

The seat of global power is also home to a population that remains largely invisible to the politicians, journalists, lawyers, lobbyists, and contractors around Capitol Hill. This other Washington, DC maintains the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of child poverty, the highest mortality rate from HIV/AIDS and the lowest life expectancy in the country.

St. Louis, Missouri Over 14% of St. Louis’ population is living below the poverty line. Out of 100,000 residents, every year 35.3 are murdered, which ranks it as one of America’s most dangerous cities too. 11.

Reno experiences nearly 39 annual crimes per 1,000 residents. 10. Modesto, California Despite being home to the largest winery in the world, the unemployment rate was nearly 13% in 2014. Modesto ranks number one in the country for car theft and out of 200,000 residents, up to 10,000 are reported to be gang members. 9. Oakland, California The economy in Oakland is strong with a good median household income. ($51,683.)

this video highlights dr. cornel west speaking at the remaking america: from poverty to prosperity talk at george washington university in washington dc on thursday, january 12, 2012. other panelists included majora carter; barbara ehrenreich; michael moore; suze orman; vicki escarra and roger clay, jr. the event was moderated by tavis smiley (the audio on this video is off slightly for the first 48 seconds only. please forgive the quick edits at 4:05; 7:58; 12:16; 13:20; 15:19; 17:25 and 20:06, between dr. west's talks) watch the full uninterrupted, unedited 150 minute discussion with tavis and all the other guests here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiVR7GhVxA8 the following is from "Tavis and Cornel's Solution to Poverty" from http://www.theroot.com/views/tavis-and-cornel-s-solution-poverty "Tavis Smiley: Dr. West and I are working on a book about poverty called The Rich and the Rest of Us: A Poverty Manifesto that comes out mid-April. The central question that we're wrestling with in this text is how we can get serious in this country about not just reducing but indeed eradicating poverty. There are three things that we're clear about. Number 1, which answers your question, is that poverty has to be made a priority in this country. At the moment it is not a priority, not just for our government but for the American people. Now one out of two Americans are either in poverty or near poverty — that's half the country — so we are hopeful that our government and the American people in this election year will get more vocal about demanding that poverty be a priority. Number 2, there must be a plan to eradicate poverty. We keep coming up with these short-term Band-Aids, like the president's payroll-tax cut. A payroll-tax cut is a decent idea, I guess, but it only works if you're on the payroll in the first place. That's just one example; there are all kinds of presidents who, in years past, have tried to come up with these in-the-moment solutions to poverty. There's got to be a real plan. We're calling in this text for a White House conference. The White House has a conference on everything but poverty, so we're calling to bring all these experts together. Marian Wright Edelman has a plan. Jeffrey Sachs at Columbia has a plan. Catholic Charities has a plan. Thirdly and finally, whoever the next president is needs to get serious about selling the process to the American people for how this will happen. When the numbers are as significant as they are, I am certain that the American people are interested in a plan to get them out of poverty. The more serious that Republicans and Democrats get about that, the better off we're going to be."

Washington DC is the most powerful capital city in the world. But its also a city that is deeply divided between a wealthy and extremely influential minority and an impoverished and largely disenfranchised African-American majority. The seat of global power is also home to a population that remains largely invisible to the politicians, journalists, lawyers, lobbyists, and contractors around Capitol Hill. This other Washington, DC maintains the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of child poverty, the highest mortality rate from HIV/AIDS and the lowest life expectancy in the country. Kike Arnal discusses his new book of photography, In The Shadow of Power.

Today our host Jorge Nestoro speaks with Anna Speer of the Anna E. Casey Foundation about the fact that increasingly numbers of children are living in extreme poverty in the United States. According to official statistics, in 2008, 18 % lived below below the official poverty line and now this figure has climbed to 22% . Dice Speer that this situation is especially worrisome given that today’s children of color will be the future leaders of the country. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/interviews-from-washington-dc-435173/

According to a Bloomberg report, Washington, DC now has a higher median income than San Jose, home to Silicon Valley. Isolated from the rest of the nation's woes, federal employees enjoyed over $120K in salary and benefits in 2010. A driving factor is the lobbying industry on K Street, which is even giving Wall St. a run for its money. The Beltway also attracts a disproportionate amount of high-salaried lawyers. There is one for every 12 people in the district. How much more will the gap widen between rich and poor in America? ---------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­ Daily videos brought to you by THE Taiwanese Animators behind the infamous Tiger Woods animation.
