I must thank Robert once again for bringing this to my attention.
Why the sudden onset of ‘fluenzas’? Oh of course, to keep young white asses out of jail!!!
We are all familiar with 1.in·flu·en·za
1.a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory passages causing fever, severe aching, and catarrh, and often occurring in epidemics.
Now, we have quite another ‘fluenza’.
1.a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy ‘white’ young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation.
When I tried to look up ‘povertenza’, this is what appeared.
povertenza – did not match any documents.

Surprised? Not a chance! You see ‘povertenza’ could be used as a ‘get-out-of jail’ and into therapy card for Black youth who live in poverty stricken inner cities. Of course, there will be no medical terminology associated with ‘povertenza’ because poverty in the Black community has been criminalized and so, povertenza will never be considered a medical condition unlike affluenza, that shit just cannot happen. I mean, who would we get to fill up all the jails and prisons, if not for criminalizing poverty in Black communities all across this country. We must have free slave convict labor and since rich white kids have affluenza, young Black kids have ‘criminalenza’ and therefore, must be put on lockdown, for their own good, of course. That is the ‘therapy’ for poor Black youth.
So, when a rich white kid commits a crime, he has a medical condition and it would be even more detrimental to his rich white ass if he was locked up with those who suffer from ‘povertenza’ and thus, he should just sit down with a psychologist who will offer him support and hope that he can somehow cope with being a poor little rich white kid who is just so isolated that he has no concept of right and wrong and when he does wrong, he must not be allowed to suffer the consequences of his actions, oh no! Not like the poor Black youth who suffer from povertenza. Affluenza is much more of a serious condition that needs treatment, not incarceration. We must have standards, you know! If we must invent medical terms to keep little badass rich white kids out of jail, then by all means, we will. However, this will not apply to those little Black kids in inner cities, who because they have been infected with povertenza, uh…well…there is just no excuse. They must suffer the consequences of their actions. This is Amerikkka you know.
Affluenza? Seriously? That is the most stupid shit that I have ever seen and I’ve seen a lot. White people never cease to amaze me with the making up of shit just to excuse their offsprings criminal behavior. They will make shit up and sling it until it sticks. This is a new fucking low even for this shithole called Amerikkka! More goddamn bullshit nonsense!
Public defenders all across Amerikkka, I double dare you to use this defense the next time a Black youth is standing beside you in criminal court on charges of stealing a loaf of bread. Cite povertenza as the cause and demand that povertenza be treated as a psychological malaise affecting ‘poor’ Black young people; symptoms of which include a lack of a quality education, feelings of low self-worth caused by racism, bigotry and prejudice and is a type of condition that needs therapy, not imprisonment and that if affluenza can be applied to rich white kids, then apply povertenza as opposed to criminalenza to poor Black youth. If that doesn’t work, tell the judge the Black kid stole the bread to sell for Nyquil because he had influenza. Hell! Try every fluenza in the book and out of it except for affluenza(we already know that one isn’t going to work)and see what happens. And get back to me on how well THAT defense goes over with the judge. Not that I don’t already know! I’m not that naïve! For the love of …!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
