The insensitive remarks about low income families and the prejudice toward people living in poverty.
Every now and then I run across someone who'll make derogatory remarks about poor people and the children being raised in them. And the remarks are sometimes nastier for children growing up in a low income, single-parent household. What's sadder even is when the individual making these comments is familiar to me. Take, for example, a very old friend of mine who once said to me over the phone “All the worst kids come from poor homes, especially if they’re being raised by only one parent.”
It’s sad, really, that someone feels this way about human beings in less fortunate situations, most of which are hard working and doing the best they can. Poverty is not a disease and the people involved are no less valuable. We are measured by who we are not by what we have.
What do you personally find deeply offensive?
