4. Well when they are unhappy they start to scapegoat. The feeling that

things are unequal makes them feel bad so they blame the other for their bad feelings. Rather than being for police reform and more training, for example, some blame minorities (who need resources) and vote to cut taxes which makes the police problems with the poor community worse. It becomes self fulfilling. Then the jails fill up. And it costs more. And they vote for paying less in taxes again. In Canada we are all still connected through things like Healthcare and amalgamation of metro areas to pool resources. It is easier to vote for being all together when there is a middle class for people on both ends to land in. I thank my stars for being lucky in that way. Everyone participates.
