--- If we could shrink the entire Earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people. With all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:
There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere
(North and South) and 8 Africans.
51 would be female; 49 would be male
70 would be other than white; 30 white.
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
50% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and all 6 would be citizens of 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 giving birth
Only 1 would have a college education.
No one would own a computer as yet.
When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes very apparent.
