racism bleeds America, we need to understand that classism is the real issue

Listening the iPOD .. came across the song .. Just a thought ..
But you see, here in America the attitude that is fed to us is that outside of
America there live lesser people. "Fuck them, let them fend for
themselves." No, Fuck you, they are you. No matter how much you want to
dye your hair blonde and put fake eyes in, or follow an anorexic standard of
beauty, or no matter how many diamonds you buy from people who exploit your own
brutally to get them, no matter what kind of car you drive or what kind of fancy
clothes you put on, you will still be them.

In fact, I have more in common with most working and middle-class white people
than I do with most rich black and Latino people. As much as racism bleeds
America, we need to understand that classism is the real issue. Many of us are
in the same boat and it's sinking, while these bougie Mother-Fuckers ride on a
luxury liner, and as long as we keep fighting over kicking people out of the
little boat we're all in, we're gonna miss an opportunity to gain a better
standard of living as a whole

Classism is grounded in a hierarchy belief system that ranks people according to socioeconomic status, family lineage, and this is something that I don’t see going away for a very long time, due to our greed and our self interest, we live in a me society, all is good once I am gaining from it, fuck those who cant make it. This attitude is one that is very dominant in our society, when we herd of distribution of wealth you see them appear in opposition.
