People with money at least have the means to experience more diverse situations - of course it doesn't mean they are all going to take that opportunity.
the poverty isn't what i was refering to. my point was there's usually more different races to be found in a poor neighborhood than in a non financial challenged area. thus giving unfortunate people more oppurtunity to experience different races and cultures on an up close and personel level.
