This reminds me of that episode of south park where token and his family
move in. Then there is a mass movement to get "rich" people out of south
park. What makes it interesting is that all the "rich" people in south
park are black. The comparison seems to fit especially since the "rich"
people from the real events are immigrants. Perhaps these girls saw this
episode of south park, and are using class to covertly express their
racism. If it's true, it's sad to see south park's social comentary
twisted for evil purposes.
