People Discuss What’s Considered ‘Trashy’ if Someone’s Poor, but ‘Classy’ if They’re Rich
We're not always aware of our own internalized double standards, but that doesn't mean they're not there. The way we perceive others is shaped by our learned prejudices whether we like it or not, and society tends to harshly judge its people based on how much money they have. In 2016, @AnaSamways asked Twitter, 'What's considered trashy if you're poor, but classy if you're rich?' The resulting thread kept going viral over the years, presumably because lots of people have something to say about the subject. Take a look at some of the most amusing and spot on replies to the thread.
