    Default DO you dislike wealthy folk?

    I have some friends who say they only like rich people that don't brag about having money.....


    ...and I've never met a rich person who wasn't proud of their acomplishments. Lol. I don't understand how people expect others not to be proud of themselves

    I also don't understand why people hate on others for being born into wealth. Chances are, you were also born into a family that knows how to make money, so when born into wealth you're going to be [/i]raised as a child[/i] knowing how to make money.


    Discuss your thoughts on what I've just said please

    I don't like the ones that think they are better than everyone else because they have more money

    i don't dislike them for being wealthy.
    i only dislike them if they are snobbish,rude, and if they think they are better than everyone else.

    No, they are people to and they should be treated as such. No as "the wealthy".

    Ok some good replies in this thread....because this is my house and I've gotten a lot of hate on other forums.

    I agree with posters such as Goth and Jon17 because I think you should treat everyone as individuals

    While I have not met a wealthy person, I have nothing against the rich folk (though I can't stand celebrities majority of the time, but their wealth has nothing to do with it). I understand that it's the wealthy businessmen who signs the paychecks. No one will work for a poor man. People who have a dislike for rich people either had bad experiences with rich children, or they were raised/taught to hate the rich people because "businesses are evil". That's why the whole Occupy Wall Street dilemma was so ridiculous.

    I have no idea who you are, but it looks like to me you are searching for someone to justify your wealth, justify that is okay that you are wealthy. Now I am not condoning this guy saying you should get the death penalty, but when your reply is that the electric chair would be lined with diamonds? Come on kiddo.

    Like many other people, I do not dislike wealthy people. What I do dislike is the type of opportunities they are afforded simply because money brings influence and power. Because mommy and daddy are person A or person B, instant ticket to Princeton, instant six figure job etc etc etc.
    What I further dislike is the amount of attention given to wealthy people by media outlets like TMZ, E! and the Bravo Channel. Let's have a bunch of rich white women get together on a show and complain about how the silverware doesn't match the napkin art for their dog's baptism after-party. I don't care what people say ultimately their goal is to have money,whether that be filthy rich, have enough to live comfortably or to just make sure the lights stay on. Money creates power, influence and notoriety and the more you have of it, the more of those you have.

    Why do you post your backyard/house on internet forums, unless you want to brag?

    Nope, they can be nice people if you know them really well. I can get my own cash.

    I don't have a disposition to dislike the wealthy. If I happen to dislike a wealthy person, it is not because they are wealthy or affluent, but because of any traits they have, which may or may not be a result of being wealthy.

    I don't think it's right to form an opinion on anyone until you get to know them properly. You shouldn't judge anyone based on their success, appearances or any factors other than personality. If you do then maybe the problem lies with you.

    No, mainly because I'm technically one of the wealthier folk myself and some of my friends are from wealthy families, since I go to a private school. I do hate people who think the world revolves around them and that they can evade taxes just because they're rich, though *cough*gangnampeople*cough*.

    Well, I'm not exactly rich, but we do have a decent house, my dad has a decent income, and I usually get what I want if I beg. =p

    I don't have a problem with certain upper-class folk, I just dislike those who brag and shove their accomplishments down people's throats (along with some politics). Though I have met a few rich people in my neighborhood, and I find them easy to get along with. Overall, rich people are mixed bag of personalities. And the same goes with the rest of the world.

    Well I'm more often to be found on the other side of the barrier...meaning that I'm somewhat more wealthy than most of the ppl of my generation. Ergo my mum doesn't work, I live in a cute 3-floor house with a private garden and my parents are co-owners of two or three houses abroad.

    But I never, EVER brag about it. I'm already not exactly fond of the stares I get when I mention wich area of my town I live in. The last thing I want is to ppl to think I'm a spoiled child, even though I probably am...
