Classism. Call it what it is — prejudice. Classism requires judgement. It requires thinking that allows you to believe you’re better than others based on what you have. It makes you believe that you have the ability to tell others how they should live. When you are classist, you believe you have the right to judge others who have less than you.
You judge them for what they eat, what they wear, where they live, how many children they have, what kind of car they drive or don’t drive, who they married, who they divorced, if they can pay their bills, if their kids dress correctly, if their nails are done, if their nails are dirty, if their lawn is mowed, if their home is neat and tidy, even if their trash is taken out properly.
It’s just one big judge-fest.
