...Beggars: A Misunderstood Subculture A Research Proposal Introduction Beggars make up a generic sub-group of people. They are seen almost everywhere – in cities, in rural areas, in third world and underdeveloped countries, and even in the most industrialized and wealthiest nations of the world. They are seen on the streets, roaming or sitting in one corner with unkempt hair, raggedy clothes and their grubby outstretched arms requesting passers-by for money or food. Beggars are a very interesting subculture of people because in spite of their rather helplessness, they are being considered threats to society. Legislators have enacted laws to prohibit beggars from earning their daily bread... in...

The beggar is quite likely to have torn shoes, and may not be wearing any shoes at all. On the other hand, a gentleman necessarily wears neat and tidy and well pressed clothes. Not only the clothes are near and tidy, but also the colors have been purposefully chosen.
