5. I can relate to the frame where she is being ashed how many kids.

That question has been asked me so many times since 2011, that I just want to scream! Apparently a poor woman is expected to have a bunch of kids.

I remember when I went to sign up for food stamps, the agent just assumed I had kids, pulled out the paperwork and just asked "how many?". When I told him I did not have kids he asked "Are you sure?" with the oddest look on his face. Then when I went to this one shelter, they asked me where my kids were staying and why could I not stay with them. Not "do you have kids?" but they just assumed I had them.

And it is not a race thing, my skin is white. It is economic.
