because money is power and the rich are in charge. The poor are often deprived of a good education also, so they are easy prey to the more privilaged sectors of society who would take advantage of them. Those who are wealthy believe that, because they have riches, obviously everyone could get rich and those who are not are simply inferior humans...the "have nots". we are the peasants on whose backs they achieve their fortune, and we must be kept ignorant and submissive. the more of us who are poor, the more deserate workers they have who cant afford to rise against those in charge.
From what i have heard, i think its because they fear getting sued by the rich and giving out money they dont have to someone who already has plenty. I dont treat someone different because of financial status, i treat them with respect until they show me they arent worthy of any.
Because in this world we have learned to admire others for what they have, not for what they are.
So very sad, but true.
Most of the above posts are "right on". The poor become targets for hatred because the rich who run things dont want to feel bad about themselves. They want to maintain their "selective reality" to appease their conscience. Fact it NOT EVERYONE can make money when there is so much inequality in the world. If the poor are lazy then you are demonizing most of the world population. The truth is out, people are waking up -- ITS TIME to set things right. Lets hope it can be done peacefully -- we need a revolution of the mind!
Those rich people are tripping (on their power). They in control and wants to stay higher above us poor people. They are just mean.
Get out of the suburbs and see the World---
because they don't have money.
Because the rich are bullys.
