Provide a 3 pages analysis while answering the following question: Power and Privilege Society and the Poor. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Personal Experience. Like any person in modern society, I have witnessed poverty. While I have not slept on the streets of a major urban area or worked in a soup kitchen, I have seen people on the streets that were obviously poor and of course, the pictures in the media of homeless and desperate people. In reflecting over my own actions, I don’t recall ever having thought or spoken out that they could only blame themselves for the condition they were in. My response has usually been one of sympathy, though I have to admit that I have been apprehensive when approached by someone who was begging or when a homeless person came up to clean the windshield while we were in traffic. I am not sure exactly how my experience relates to the broader issues, because I while I am certainly not a “victim-blamer” who thinks that people can bootstrap themselves out of the culture of poverty, neither am I convinced that the answer is one of “re-education and more tolerance of deviant behavior” (Klass 1). I don’t blame the victims for their condition, but I am not sure tolerance of deviant behavior is the answer either. Legal Contribution. … In fact, the not-so-subtle suggestion is that the poor are responsible for their own condition and as such contributors, have no remedy at law. I find this to be extraordinarily ironic since most justices, judges, and lawyers are tremendously affluent by comparison and have no concept of the culture of poverty on the level that most homeless people experience every day. For the law to focus on attempting to change the individuals without addressing the circumstances that contribute to their condition is to give the culture of poverty a significant boost in the wrong direction. It is asymptomatic treatment instead of a curative one. Sadly, the social dynamic of poverty does not provide a much brighter prognosis from the perspective of the disadvantaged.Social Will. Society has played a role in the culture of poverty, and should not be let off the hook so easily as to blame the victims of the legal system.
