IF YOU ARE AS EQUALLY OFFENDED BY RICH KIDS OF INSTAGRAM THEN BE BRAVE AND SEND THEM A CLEAR MESSAGE; THEIR ARROGANCE AND INSENSITIVE DISPLAY OF EXCESSIVE WEALTH IS UGLY.
WHAT LINES HAVE THEY CROSSED IN THEIR GROSS DISPLAY OF AFFLUENCE. IF WE SAY NO LINES, THEN OUR CULTURE IS SIMPLY ROTTEN.
SEND THEM A SIMPLE MESSAGE - SHAME!
THE LINK TO THEIR TUMBLR PAGE http://richkidsofinstagram.tumblr.com/
All of the images are from their blog and images I have previously blogged and credited on this tumblr page.
This blog exists purely in response to “Rich Kids of Instagram”. I happenstanced upon this blog reading the news this morning so being a Tumblr Being myself I had a look. I was struck by a number of thoughts and emotions. Firstly I should say that these images are those of kids doing what many young people do regardless of wealth or status; having self-indulgent fun. They’re just doing it with more expensive stuff and in more salubrious surroundings, and then sharing their experiences, and if one trawls Tumblr there are many, many blogs which display images of “wealth and affluence” that the less wealthy desire. Nothing wrong with that you may say; and as Annabel Schwartz said, “she wasn’t going to be ashamed of my wealth”. Well no, perhaps you shouldn’t be ashamed of your wealth Annabel, but perhaps you should. The tone of the blog is defensive and arrogant with no recognition of what money means. It is a glaring example of the ugliness of wealth at times.
So my message is to Annabel and her friends; have a look at poverty and then please have some humility with respect to what you have. Understand the opportunity and possibility inherent in your wealth which millions of others in this world will never know, purely because of their lack of money. Understand the life-long difficulties that poverty can bring upon a person. If you have money you have a responsibility to recognize what that means.
Be ashamed Annabel and your friends; be very ashamed of your arrogance and your actions. I’m terribly sad for you, you are not people I envy or would ever aspire to be. You are ugly.
