History (social oppression)

posted by .

I'm having trouble understanding what social oppression is. Can it be applied to poor hating on other poors?

  • History (social oppression) -

    Social oppression:

    "The systematic, socially supported mistreatment and exploitation of a group or category of people by another."

    Yes, social oppression has often been imposed by poor whites on poor blacks.

    Years ago when I lived in an all-white, low-rent apartment complex, my neighbor's disdain for blacks was strong. I felt that my neighbors had to feel superior to someone -- and the blacks were lower in the social hierarchy.
