If the World Were 100 People (2000 AD)
Something to think about!

If the world's population was only 100 people, and present demographic ratios were maintained, there would be ...

  57 Asians

  21 Europeans

  14 from North and South America

  8 Africans

  52 would be female

  48 would be male

 70 would be nonwhite, 30 white

 59% of the entire world's wealth would belong to only 6 people and all 6 would be citizens of the United States

  80 would live in substandard housing

  70 would be unable to read

  50 would suffer from malnutrition

  1 would be near death

  Only 1 would have a college education

  99 of them will not see this message, because only 1 would have a computer.

  When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for both acceptance, and understanding becomes glaringly apparent.
