I think the problem this discussion is turning into is 'all' vs 'some'.

Are all poor people lazy? Of course not.
Are some poor people lazy? I would say yes (although I not even going to attempt giving a percentage).

Can all poor people get jobs? (No, studies on the current welfare state is proving that)
Are some poor people not working out of choice? Yeah, I think some are.

Can all of poor people's problems be blamed on racism? A huge percentage can easily be but not
100%.

Until, we agree on this (maybe we can't) this discussion might not get anywhere.
