the World Were 100 People
If the world's population was only 100 people, and present demographic ratios were maintained, there would be ...
14 from North and South America
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.
