Absolutely it does. There's 2 reasons why.
1) is the family just cant afford to do any different; to put their kid in a better position to succeed
2) is the family doesnt see a problem with the way they're living and see no problem with their offspring bein exactly how they are.
#1 I can understand, #2 kills me. And thats not exclusive to poverty. From what I've seen (and read on this site) there's a good percentage of people who pass on limits to their kid based on where they the parent are in life.
Peer pressure. On a community level. I never knew we were poor cause everyone around me lived the same or even worse.
Ehh, that too, but i was speaking moreso on the mindset that they literally dont want to 'be better'. Its as if they take it as a slight, what you mean you gon be 'better' than us.
Like the wise man Chris Rock said: Ngga graduate college nobody care, ngga get out o jail he's the fukin man.
