Some North Carolina hospitals sue patients who fail to pay their bills. (They want to get paid for services rendered; go figure.) The NC NAACP says that's a bad thing because you're picking on poor people and they want the hospitals to stop.
Me, I think being poor sucks in a lot of ways. You can't have nice cars, you don't get to live in a good neighborhood, people may not provide you services they don't think you can pay for and so on. I started out relatively poor, and it's why I've worked really hard to not be poor. I figured out fairly early that being poor sucks and I don't like it.
Perhaps others ought to try it sometime. Before someone decides that the free ice cream has ran out and all you get is carrot sticks.
