Interview Script: Dialogue for Social Awareness
Sophie: Hello, I’m Sophie DuPont with the Dialogue for Social Awareness. Here with me today is Roger Jennings, a salesman from Houston, Texas. Roger, according to a recent survey conducted by Dialogue for Social Awareness, Americans are concerned about poverty around the world, but what about poverty in our own neighborhoods? The U.S. Bureau of the Census found that the poverty rate in America is currently at 12.5%. What are your thoughts about sending food and health care supplies to other countries when there is so much poverty here?
Roger: That’s a little bit like asking me who deserves to live in poverty and who doesn't, isn't it? I mean, if we send food and supplies overseas, then we are potentially taking aid from American citizens. But if we distribute the food and supplies to American citizens, then children in third world countries don’t get the aid. It's a no-win argument. Earlier you said the poverty rate in America is 12.5%, but the world poverty rate according to the World Bank is 25%. If we look at these numbers as people--women and children, thousands more are suffering across the world compared to just in America--maybe even millions. Again, I don't believe poverty is ever a "them-or-us" argument. Instead, we need every person in every developed country to help combat this issue, not just Americans. One country can't fight this problem. It's a world problem and a world responsibility.
Which sentence most clearly states Roger’s position about the issue?

8.)Read the following interview script for the Dialogue of Social Awareness, then answer the question below.
Sophie: Let me interrupt you for one second. You just said that every person in every country needs to contribute. What about those in America who are living in poverty? How can they contribute?
Roger: I believe that everyone can contribute whatever is within their means. This applies to impoverished people in America, too. A big difference exists between Americans living in poverty compared to South Africans living in poverty. I realize that when people are in the midst of difficult times, telling them, "Well, it could be worse," doesn't help lessen the stress of wondering where their next meal will come from. However, I believe that every person and every nation can contribute something. Even the smallest donation of money, goods or time can have an impact on a big problem.
Sophie: Thank you Roger for sharing your perspective on this social issue affecting people around the world. I've talked with a number of other people today as well, and many also believe that American responsibility begins with solving the social issues domestically first. Others didn't even believe world hunger exists, despite scientific evidence. The sheer diversity of perspectives means that these issues are not going to be solved today. However, the discussions being held here in Washington will at least bring awareness--and awareness is the seed of change. I'm Sophie DuPont for Dialogue for Social Awareness.
