Why do you all hate poor people so much?

I am what you could call "poor".

I'm a nice person though. Yes, I get assistance. No I don't work. I spend my money how I see fit and make sure my babies are well taken care of.

I am a good friend, try not to harm others with my actions, and I make one hell of a good pineapple upside-down cake. But a girl at work literally said to me "rich folks don't slum it with poor folks...that's just how shit is" 

If you are "wealthy", do you have any "poor" friends? Why or why not?

We don't bite:/

I'm friends with people for their personalities, not their wallet

Not everyone hates the poor.

However, if you don't have a reason to not work I hope you are looking.

You said you don't work so how can a girl from work say that to you?

I have a reason. I actually miss working so much. I felt needed and appreciated.

I personally don't care if someone is poor or not, or if they're on assistance or not. We live very comfortably but that does not make me better than anyone else.

I know a few people who live off assistance, and while I don't agree with it, I know that #1 it's none of my business, and #2 that doesn't make them bad people. Not the way I would choose to live my life, but not my place to judge.

some do, some don't...getting ready to dump the ones that don't...tired of the sympathy act.
