Food for thought:
Being poor is a mindset that individuals allow themselves to stay in. Broke is only temporary; people who are broken after being laid off or a life altering situation occurs. The founder of Black Women Networking Kisha Jones-Pate gave me some enlightenment on what poor really means:
Stop being a negative soul and embrace your future endeavors eliminating the spirit of being poor! If you are broken right now; do everything to become fixed.
