I see people say this to others who grew up in the hood but are now living a pretty good life financially. I feel like it is impossible for someone to actually forget where they came from. All of us know our beginnings and how we got to where we are. Sometimes I feel like people say this just to bring you down and make it seem like you are acting brand new or like you are better. I never see anyone say this to people who grew up in middle class to upper middle class families. 

Should the person from the hood who worked hard to get where they are be more humble and appreciative than the person who didn't have to face as much adversity due to their environment?

I think they mean don't look down on people that were exactly like you used to be

scoffing at someone on food stamps when you grew up on them ... silly.

scrubbing yourself clean of your culture just to "fit" in is silly too ... unnecessary and damaging
