A Word About...A Word
Lately, I have been hearing this same word being thrown around again and again on TV, an now I'm hearing it in class. The word is "Elitist". I have heard this so much, that I'm sick of it. Funny thing is, I hear this word a lot from the mouths of people who make more than $100,000 a year. To me, if you make that kind of cheese, you are in the "elite" category(actual salary fluctuates based on cost of living index per location). I'll make this brief, this is like the pot calling the kettle purple. Any of you that get taken in by this bullshit "elitist" hype going around and make the aforementioned salary, keep it shut. Any body who knows what it's like to work your ass off for a living and doesn't pull in a decent wage ACTUALLY knows "elitist" when that shit is spewed. So regardless of your affiliation, leave that kind of labeling to those of us who qualify.
