They're Snobs and they don't like you. You know the types.
I was brought up working class in the country. Later, at 22 I moved to a big city and hung out with people from the upper middle class. Some were downright rich. While the youth were more accepting, the older ones were simply snobs. I was basically 'undercover' so they didn't know my background.
I saw a whole new world. All the clichés about them are true. Not to say that there isn't decent people. Some of them anyway. But they do indeed have a disdain for those beneath.
Here's a video poem I made about this subject.
Did this resonate with you? Bring up any thoughts? Let me know.
