"The terms racism and sexism are well defined and accepted as discriminatory beliefs. Industrialization and the development of social classes has naturally led to another system that must be placed in the same category as racism and sexism: classism. What is classism? Simply, classism is the separation of people due to social class which includes, economic circumstances, education, and standard of living. Classism is the fact that Paris Hilton will spend ten thousand dollars on her dog but will not give one thousand dollars to aid a young man or woman in attending college. Classism is a banker purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz and driving his car off of the show floor and past a mother wondering how shell make enough money to pay her rent and feed her children"
