People may believe that the bible was just Europeans holy book but that is not true because Black people are mentioned and appear in the history of the Bible many times. The New Testament records the conversion of the Ethiopian eunuch and explains when the apostle Paul has his first missionary journey into Europe, bringing Christian beliefs back to Africa. By the third century Christianity was the dominant religion in North Africa and Egypt.

A quarter of the population lives on less than $1.25 per day (UNDP 2011), and “87.3 percent of the population suffers multiple deprivations while an additional 6.8 percent are vulnerable to multiple deprivations” (UNDP 2013). “Almost half the population is considered undernourished, and the average life expectancy is only 48 years”. Most people living under these severe conditions are trapped in a cycle of poverty (UNDP 2011). Poverty is a major factor in this regard and accounts for close to 70 percent of the factors that cause streetism in Ethiopia.

Trinidad the British colony did not have the same political history as did Barbados and Jamaica (Older British colonies). In order to preserve the British political order, and its control over the island, in 1832, Trinidad was governed by what is now called: ‘’Crown Colony Government’’.

The British planters continued what the French ones started, leading to the expansion of the sugar industry with the aid of a significant number of slaves which increased by the early 1800s. By the year 1815, African slaves formed 67% of the island’s population.
According to a new study by Bas W. van Doorn, a political science professor at College of Wooster in Ohio. Doorn studied 474 stories about American poverty from 1992 all the way to 2010.

The DRC is touches the Central African Republic, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Angola. Because the DRC is surrounded by over five countries it is a prime target of emigration. Emigration is not bad, but the DRC is filled with different ethnics and cultural influences. For, instance, since culture is learned a lot of different influences go into the DRC culture. For example, the Rwanda genocide in the late 1990s thousands of thousands of individuals from the Hutu tribe fled to the DRC bringing the language of Rwanda-Rundi; as a result of the genocide Rwanda-Rundi is “the 5th most common language in the [DRC]” (“Where on earth do they”, n.d.).
But on the other side, the Furesians are the absolute poverty; they are in an economic position in which one lacks the sufficient income in cash or kind to the most basic biological needs for food, clothing, and shelter. Economically speaking, the poverty and morality rate of the Furesians is quite low, most suffer from starvation, dehydration, and not having a home. "An American household with an income of $50,000 spends around $30,000 annually on necessities, according to the Conference Board, a nonprofit economic research organization.
