Recession? What Recession?

People are losing their jobs left and right and some don’t know how to handle their unemployment. Some are doing stupid shit like stealing, killing, drugging, drinking themselves into a stupor or committing suicide.

I don’t know.  As a caribbean person, lack of money doesn’t affect me as much.  My argument? I was born poor like a lot of my caribbean brothers and sisters so we know somewhat how to handle hardship sans the panic.

How many of us remember the outhouse and outside kitchen or even cooking on three big stones, not to mention outside plumbing, or baking bread and cake in a tin barrel with the coal pot underneath? What about those even less fortunate who had to go to the river to bathe or wash their clothes, or those who had to go to the nearest standpipe to fetch drinking water? The lists goes on and on. Guess those memories are why this recession isn’t affecting me as much. – MP
