Classicism — the biggest ism I find a problem in America and beyond:

Poor vs Rich, Lower Class vs Higher Class

In America, I think a deeper problem than racism is classicism. Classicism is:

Higher class, richer and more intelligent people are more morally worthy and virtuous than the poorer, less intelligent, and less educated.

Why is classicism bad?

I find almost all “isms” bad. I think we should judge people based on their character, industriousness and courage. Not their background, ethnicity, morphology, class, how rich they are, etc.

I grew up poor. I get it. My dad gambled away rent money, and my mom was effectively a single mom, holding down 3-4 petty jobs, like cleaning houses, waitress, etc.

The new untouchables

In society with covid, the new thing:

The rich can be contactless, and the poor and working class will be “untouchable” by the richer and higher class.

I cannot really relate with rich or privileged people

For myself, I can only really relate to immigrants, working class, the poor, etc. Similar to my hard knock life.

What “white” and “black” means in America

This is why I find notions of white and black problematic:

White means “clean, superior, chosen, rich” and black means “dirty, lower, sinister, lesser”

My thought:

As long as we use notions of black, white, colored, etc … classicism will persist.

Rags to riches

I achieved the American Dream. I grew up poor, and now I’m rich.

So what does this mean?

I feel like JAY Z. My hustler spirit is what got me to where I am. I did not hustle for fun … it was more desire. I wanted these things, so I relied on myself to get what I wanted.

What’s my new dream?

To give back. Super simple.
