idk how to post wshh videos



To get people to buy into their brand. They maintain their wealth by creating this ideal or image that they are in the same struggle as you or at the very least can relate to what your going through. This is something done by politicians and rappers.

We need a topic about the working poor . I know exactly how that feels . I only judge people for the most part that allows kids to go without , but purchase expensive items to look good . Anyone that drives a luxury car but lives rent free with the parents should be ashame . Home ownership should be more important in my op. I only read a few paragraphs .
 
You never know unless you live it . We all could be poor in the blink of eye . The republicans are buying time until the President leaves office . I work since the age of 16 and fear what could happen , no matter how well you plan for retirement . JMO

people hang their hat where their hand can reach,

for some, "good times" are fleeting so they yolo

they can't buy a great house or great vacation or freedom from work TODAY but they can reach a belt or purse

eventually it'll click that if they hold off they can get the luxuries that matter long term

Bc they want to have that" common touch"...

Poor ppl lie and say they are middle class and rich ppl lie to say they are middle class.while the middle class is shrinking.

Me tooooooo.

I know  my poor self super enjoyed the sushi lunch I just had.

But I have to eat...may as well be something good. I'd honestly rather spend on food than designer items though. I get more out of a good meal.

You drive a luxury car Maysay?

I'm surprised I thought you were Ms Frugal Mcdugal.

I didn't expect a hoopty but maybe something " sensible"

I find these topics a bit hilarious on bhm

It shows the underlying classism and how people behave towards those they think are poor than them. Some of the threads in the past have showed this, with comments like "1000 dollar shoes 50 dollar outfit" in the past whilst conveniently forgetting that poor is a synonym for black

And I also find funny that no one wants anyone to tell them what to do with their money but would happily tell someone they perceive poor what to do with theirs

And poor is subjective

As you were
