Define "wealthy". Are we talking about millionaires and their heirs, or are we talking about... Say, people with above average income? Either way, I don't have anything against or dislike "wealthy" folk, or the generic snobbish rich kids either.
My family is quite wealthy already. I don't care about money really. Its how you carry on about yourself is how you should be judged on.
Oh and this thread is stupid honestly. for real. Money shouldn't be something on how you decide someone. There are some really snobby, bratty and overall shitty dirt poor folks out there but we assume as a society that the dirt poor deserve respect because well, they are living shitty. Honestly I have more respect for the snobby rich person because hell, at least they are going out and EARNING their dollar instead of sitting on their *** reaping unemployment benefits for months on end.
those dang liberals
No. I have no issues with the material wealth someone has.
But I do dislike a lot political rhetoric that some wealthy people use to justify their position in society. (not going into detail because this isn't the debate thread)
Best Signature Ever!
I grew a dislike for them because of living where I am. My neighboring towns are notorious for being rich and snobby. And I have seen it first hand, they literally look at you like you're scum. Not very friendly. ):
There are plenty of friendly wealthy folks I'm sure as well though.
I don't dislike wealthy people. Opinions on people should be judged by their personality and behavior, not by their amount of money. If they're arrogant and see everyone who isn't rich as lesser people, there's a valid reason to hate them. But there are rich people with a kind personality as well, and I don't see any reason to hate those.

Although i have met and heard of hundreds of wealthy people who snobbish and rude, but that doesnt mean that all of them are complete jerks. Some people actually good things with there money.
I have great connections.
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...
I personally don't dislike the wealthy folk.
But more often than not these people whom are in possession of large
amounts of material possessions, care very little for the little things or even other things around them.
I'm by no means suggesting that the rich and or wealthy care less about other people or their environment
than others whom are less wealthy than them. But through my experience the majority of wealthy people
or even rich people , have a very harmfully negative and toxic perception of the world.
I don't hate weathly people. It really just depends on the person they are. I've been friends with several wealthy people with wonderful personalities and the most positive and kind demeanor. I don't see all this hate for the wealthy people (the '99%' protests) I mean, they worked for what they have now. Not sit on their lazy buts and demand to be given money by the government.

I don't judge a person by what they have or how they look, it's actions and words that matter.
Though I admit it does seem the rich are numb to the plights of the less fortunate, but that's usually just because that's what they show you in the media. Not that the hyper-wealthy aren't one of the main problems, but that's another story.

I don't dislike wealthy people. Its just that their sometimes stereotyped as people that flaunt their wealthiness. I don't like people like that though.
If somebody hates another person purely because they're wealthy/have a higher income, they're probably not too great of a person.
Also, I'm curious, what qualifies as "flaunting their wealthiness"? Splurging on expensive things and then being excited about said things?

i dont hate them, but it does kind of annoy me when they show off all of their fancy stuff ie. cars private jets, houses/mansions, etc.

Like Ansem said I don't hate them either, HOWEVER I don't like how they don't like little people, how we are very small and unimportant to them, I hate all the stuff they have, I don't want any of that stuff, they think that having rich stuff makes you a big person, but it doesn't, in my opinion it makes you seem sad that you think money and objects will be there for you, sorry reality is it won't

I don't care about how well off financially people are but I often find that rich people are really condescending and just not that fun to be around.
I don't like wealthy people that only associate with other wealthy people and speak derisively about poor people *COUGHMITTROMNEYCOUGH*. I admire people like Matt Damon who are wealthy, but tend to associate a lot with people who make much less than them.
But why like Matt Damon who makes a absurd amount of money just like Mitt Romney?
Honestly I think a lot of you are hypocritical when you say the wealthy don't associate with the less wealthy. This is such a overly used, prejudicial thing to say. Not all wealthy people are condescending and out to make asses of those who make less money. They walk among you just like normal people. They just happen to earn more cash.
Making rich people look like assholes is a stupid in its entirety; I see plenty of assholes every day that make no money whatsoever.
I don't hate wealthy folk. I hate Snobs.
For instance, a good friend of mine has a rich uncle. I've met his uncle, and he's a fine man. My Grandpa wasn't rich at all, in fact my Mom's family were dirt poor, but he was still a complete snob, so I dislike that.
Some are okay, and some try to show off. Coincidentally, the ones that show off are the ones I want to kill and steal money from.
