@jbouie I’m surprised a white-black variant of that old “The Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz” line has never caught on.

Anti-Social Media: Wealthy NY Wankers Bash the Poor

As the old joke goes, “the Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz.” Or another variant: “America will never forgive blacks for slavery.” Oppressors and abusers (and the beneficiaries of past abuses) often project their own guilt, self-loathing and dehumanization onto their victims, then hate them for being evidence – the living (or dead) proof – of the abusers’ moral rot. So it is with the rich and the poor, as a new story at Alternet demonstrates.
