can try to explain my own classism: I think classes probably sort on important qualities and reinforce those qualities. An assembly line supervisor might make the same amount of money as a schoolteacher, but the schoolteacher would probably seem more refined and be able to access better social circles. Gentry class people would be horrified at the thought; they might respond to the same offense by filing a complaint with Human Resources. He himself went to a medium-tier college and is probably closer in spirit to the small-business owners of the upper Labor class than to the Stanford MBA-holding executives of the Elite.

Siderea doesnt want to get into how race interacts with class, and that seems wise. But it also seems distinctly different from ordinary Gentry norms. For example, the Underclass and Labor class people I know are much more likely to have high-conflict styles of interaction: if they feel offended, theyll yell at you and maybe even fight you. It still doesnt matter. The three main classes (labor, gentry, and elite) are three different infrastructures.
