Do you think poor people are sub human?

Over heard two neighbors talking one said "That old car sure has been in that the spot for a long time" other said "It probably belongs to some one from those apartments (speaking of to my apartments) you know there are poor people living in them." I did not know until then that was poor. ......It made me feel like Pip from Great Exceptions.

  • I don't think a level of income determines the character of a person.

    Perhaps your neighbor was just making the assumption that people who live in apartments can't afford other housing (which is, of course, untrue).

  • No, people often assume a lot of things about people that aren't right. For those of us who manage to get by every month, it doesn't mean we are any less human than they are. People are too quick to judge.

  • No I do not. But I also don't assume that based on a conversation two people are having they hate poor people either. People say a lot of things and If they're not anyone I really know I let it go. I don't allow another person to make me feel small. They can try but they will never succeed. Just know that you're a good person regardless of where you live and let them think whatever they want.

  • yup, some do....

    they are "THOSE PEOPLE" and sometimes the people calling them "THOSE PEOPLE" are 1 or 2 paychecks AWAY from being "THOSE PEOPLE"

  • most people look down on SOMEONE else to make themselves feel better or superior. the poor generally are just an easy target.

  • Haha, it would make a hypocrite of me if I did, as we're not exactly swimming in money ourselves....
