Classes in America

I am dismayed that people don't recognize the class problem that the United States has.  

I'm not alone in finding it: see this article, for example.

The tipoff is easy: listen for the contempt of their fellow citizens, and the casual assertion that group x (the x is proxy for a wide number of descriptors), which does not include anyone that they work with or are friends with, and whose characteristics are mainly imaginary, is contemptible. Their descriptions sound vague for a reason: they are making them up from a list of things they dislike, not from people they know.
