Thursday, January 24, 2019 (PW) — You must hunt hard for your good luck, in order to aspire your dreams. Sitting under that tea-maker’s Rakuba (shelter) with your thousand dreams in the mind won’t bear fruits. Claiming that you are a graduate won’t help you out, I swear. 2019 won’t make any change in your lives unless you choose to change some of the attitudes that you and I know they cannot allow any progress in our personal lives.

It is now many years down your graduation and you can’t get a job to afford your life or get married either at least to begin the progress of renaming your ancestors as African culture requires of you. Without lying, most of our youths are graduated directly to poverty and hopelessness because we so much depend on the nation and the government for employment.

Today I have chosen to talk directly to youths not to the government. I am attacking youths of which I am a member and I carry some blames too for having not done enough to establish my life.  If you have been viewing posts on the new year eve on social media, you should have seen a lot of littering congratulatory messages for having arrived to the new year.

Access to education, employment and healthcare is different for lower-class members of society. Income inequality affects a myriad of statistics from violent crime rate to stress-related illness.

There are many subcategories under umbrella of the class division. Sociologists study the impact of further social divisions due to race, gender, marital status, health, rural location to decipher the impact of these categories on daily life. Some divisions have a stronger impact on an individual place in society than others and the way society views and processes these divisions can change and evolve over time. (more…)
