A Unique Perspective On The World's Population
If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:
There would be:
14 from the Western Hemisphere (north and south)
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non white,
70 would be non Christian,
30 would be Christian,
89 would be heterosexual,
59% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and all 6 would be citizens of the U.S.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death, 1 would be near birth
Only 1 would have a college education and only 1 would own a computer.
When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for both acceptance and understanding becomes glaringly apparent.
