The class system in the USA is masked as we’re NOT supposed to have classes. “American Dream, classless society, “natural equality – that all are “born equal.”.
And it’s still a dream.
It’s also stereotypes of poverty and middle. I was raised to THINK I was middle but I was raised poverty. Yet when I _was_ middle for a bit, I poked my head into wealthy – and it is a different outlook to middle or poverty.
