Examples of impoverished in a Sentence

    At birth we are provided seeds to sow, but the amount and quality are not equal; the wealthy acquire high quality and limitless amounts, while the poor received the opposite; therefore, the impoverished cannot error while the affluent can dispose handfuls in the wind. RJ Intindola – (Gandolfo) – 1995

  3. John Kennedy, Autobiography of malcolm x:

    Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.

  4. President Barack Obama:

    Everyone here knows the disaster and the poverty happened long before that hurricane hit, all the hurricane did was make bare what we ignore each and every day, which is that there are whole sets of communities that are impoverished, that don't have meaningful opportunity, that don't have hope and they are forgotten.

  5. Louis-Ferdinand Céline:

    This instinctive repulsion which tradespeople inspire in men of sensitive feeling is one of the very rare consolations for being so impoverished which are given to those of us who don't sell anything to anybody.
