The problem was her family moved into a large city hoping for a better life. Had they instead moved  ...

You do know that people can only draw welfare for three years total in their lifetime now right?

There is no more generations of people living on welfare.

Clinton did end 'welfare as we know it'.

If you sign up for any assistance, they will put you in a work program.

You can still get section 8 housing and food stamps.
So the mother gets off welfare and the 18 year old daughter gets on it instead.
Sounds like 3 card monty to me.
At least they cutoff the 'extra' money for knocking out babies like rabbits.
I'm just here for the money

You don't get it - welfare is a problem, but it's not the total problem or even the biggest.

Its the mentality. The drugs, child abuse, sexual abuse - its amazing these people are sane at all.

No one could live off of welfare anyways.  That had to be supplemented by illegal activities.  

All that has happened is more money is being made from illegal means such as selling drugs.

Interesting observations!

What are you talking about?

Chinese immigrants are known here for their work ethic and they succeed in this country because they are not afraid of making the sacrifices needed to get ahead and climb the ladder.

I've seen it over and over.  This girls story is not unique.

The truth is - they put us all to shame when it comes to this.

But then you just can't praise anyone for their accomplishments.  You have to find faults even if you know nothing about the situation at all.

I have a lot of respect for chinese immigrants.  They truly are the 'model minority'.

What you "know" is not necessarily what you should know.

You are merely pushing cliches and sta ...

Well this thread is about chinese immigration to the US.

And that is something I do know more about than you.

Did you not read this girls' story?  

Despite all odds, she went on to get a good education and to better herself.

That is the norm with the chinese in our communities.

It doesn't matter what you see in china - when they come here, they thrive and succeed.

You do know that chinese-americans make more money on average than white families in the US?

They put us to shame with their work ethic and they don't whine about having to sacrifice to get there  like the majority of americans born here.

The Whites are as racist as the blacks in the US. The Whites make ethnic jokes among themselves. They are not as explicit or straight forward as the blacks, because US whites feel most comfortable among themselves. But the profound bigotry, racism and Christian Sinophobia are the same as the blacks. In fact the blacks learn their Sinophobia and racism from the white dominated media. US media persistently bash China and portrait Chinese people as inferior. It reflects the painful reality of the profound racism in the US society. For example, I, unfortunately, experience a workplace in the US that whites openly speak racial slurs against citizens of People's Republic of China.

The fat guy loved by the Sinophobic West.
