Yawn. Over used term. The days of slavery are over, even the dumbest of dumbs can easily see the US. is one overhyped shithole. Every single Nigerian who reside there knows this only slaves who are still brainwashed and intend to waste over a million naira to travel to that god forsaken poo hole still live in illusion.

California is one of if not the most expensive cost of living states in the US.

Don't be surprised to know that most of those homeless tents are owned by undocumented immigrants and they have been encouraged to remain in California due to the protection cover of being a Sanctuary City.

Lies! They are whites and Americans. They are suffering from the economic downturn in America that we don't get to see on CNN. They can't afford their rent and had no other option but to live this way. The percentage of those on drugs is less than 5%. Homelessness is a clear indication of the failure of the American dream

You are still living in the lies of the American dream. over 62% of Americans are one paycheck away from living on the street. If Americans wages are delayed for just a week more than 62% of her citizens will be lying on every street corner. In a country where over 70% of her citizens can't boast of $500 in an emergency and over 50% will die in debt, we need to start telling ourselves the truth

what u need to understand is that it is worse in most countries in the world.

i have family members who work round the clock and they are building houses in naija. if u live within your means and you are willing to work hard im pretty sure you cant end up in the streeet


i need you to do a survey and show me the numberof illegal nigerian immigrats ( who obviously have lesser OPPRTUNITY than these homeless citizens) in the homeless community. No country is a paradise but Americans need to stop being silly and lazy. your minimum wage is 12 dolls if you work for 10hrs thats you ll pay rent and feed comfortably, i dont need a complex analysis.


i saw a video of an homeless dude stealing dog food from the dogs plate, come on, i prepare the salary schedule of casual workers in my company we pay them 10 - 15k naira, they fvcking wear clean clothes and dont live on the street.

i will simply as you 1 question. if we do a citizenship swap of 10 nigerians for 10 homeless americans (all qualifications and abilities being equal) will the nigerian be on the street like the homeless?

Homelessness in the US. is due to economic and financial hardship. Even people with high paying jobs lose their homes on a daily basis. The system in America is different from that obtain down here. America is a credit based system and people actually dont own nothing. Once you default on your payment you will be foreclosed upon. The US. middle class is shrinking so I wont be surprised if the US. turn into a third world country within 10yrs

You are just pained about American... whats went wrong?Did you got Visa banned?

Every country got its ups and down.

America practices capitalism, the-same system that Nigeria is practising.Hence,We have different people living in a society with different income ranging from super rich ,middle class and lower class.

Wetin una dey talk self. You are living in America (and you probably will give ur life to stay there) and criticing her at the same time. D kind of food some of those homeless people are eating are still better dan d food ur professors eat here.

A country of about 5 million squared kilometers is dt developed and ur shithole of less than 1 million is another name of hell.

So because someone is stating the obvious you accuse them of being anti-american? The article on market watch, was that also written by a Nigerian?

Look, even Americans know america has problems and acknowledge that. Then comes you a Nigerian who now wants to defend America more than the indigenous Americans themselves. When last did you defend your country Nigeria?

We live in an age of technology. Nothing is hidden under the sun. In America, without credit cards, most Americans will be living a hellish life. Debt is the way of life in America. I lived in the US for so many years so I know.

No country is perfect and only ignorant people will believe you Nigerians who try to paint a false picture of America. I wonder what you stand to gain doing that. Maybe so that your citizens back in Nigeria will worship the ground you walk on when you come home to visit once a year for Christmas.

I donate a minimum of 20 hours per year of my time to resources that feeds homeless people.

They may not get 3 squares of it per day due to their mobile condition but they definitely have access to better food than average Nigerians. I guarantee it.

They have a housing and healthcare issue mostly but not particularly about food.

Not sure if that’s supposed to mean something to me or not, but it didn’t blow up my skirt.

I encourage you to try and get first hand experience when you have the opportunity to volunteer your time.
