In recent days I have seen men and women get treated as if they were lower than animals simply because they work in manual labor. I want to make something very clear.
Just because they are making your sandwich, delivering your purchases or working on your car… just because you paid for these services… you did not pay for them. You do not own them. They are not your property. You can not treat them as if you own them.
Treat them as if they are equal to you, because they are. Just because you have the money to buy a burger, drive a fancy car or have things you purchased delivered to your door does not make you better than them. Just because you may have a degree and they may not does not make you better than them.
In my experience, the richer you are, the more education you have, the whiter your collar, the lower you stand on the humanity scale. There’s something that happens in the brain when people get higher on the social ladder. Maybe the air is thin up there. But they start devolving into greedy, grasping, unfeeling, uncharitable assholes.
You may be a have. They may be a have not. But they have one thing you don’t have.
