My husband's family was extremely poor. His parents were sharecroppers on a plantation outside of New Orleans.
 
He went into the army, got an education and went on to build a very lucrative defense contracting firm.

Once upon a time there was a black girl who grew up in a middle class suburb. Her mom bought her everything she needed; clothing, food, etc. Then this girl went to college and only has $2 in her account. The end.
