Facts


             

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 similar to this: 
57 Asians; 
21 Europeans; 
14 from the Western Hemisphere;
8 Africans; 

52 would be female; 

48 would be male; 
70 would be non-white; 
30 would be white;
70 would be non-Christian; 
30 would be Christian;
89 would be heterosexual;
11 would be homosexual; 
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world’s wealth and all 6 would be from 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; 
1 would be near birth; 
1 would have a college education; 
1 would own a computer:
When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes glaringly apparent
