Civil Rights Activists Stand Up to Snobs - Page 3
Certainly there are plenty of people financially comfortable who are grateful for their blessings. They realize how fortunate they are. They can understand the odds, and show equal respect to people up and down the economic scale.
These protestors represent the classic battle of standing up for ourselves. A financially comfortable person and the many phonies pretending to be, are no better than you and me.

If a classless classist looks down their nose at you, tells you to go get a job, tells you that you have no one to blame but yourself, tells you to work harder and you’ll end up like them, stand up and tell them they do not comprehend the reality of randomness in life. Tell them that maturing toward accepting self-responsibility is our mandate. Tell them the vast majority of us have been tested and are being tested—that their insensitivity is evidence that they would fail these same tests we are under.
