First off, If you're black theres a very slim liklihood you are 'rich' so don't even front. Being rich is having more than you can dream of. Being rich is having a hell of a lot more than your peers and more expensive stuff too. You can chose to show this stuff off or save up the money but I would splurge a little just to show everyone you do have a lot of money but save most of it.
Poorer people seem to get jealous of the richer because they cant afford as nice things. Rich people can either make their fortunes through hard work, stock market or striking it rich. They can be inheritors or lottery winners or moguls or they can just have a really good job.
Many people get envious when they find out they cant ever and will never have as much money as me. What can I say? I'm one of the lucky ones financially and you aren't.
Poor man sonny envied the wealthier peers because he realized he would never have anything close so instead of making something of himself he whined and cried and layed on his poor sorry ass which resulted in nothing.
Michaels stomach dropped when he realized how far behind in life he was compared to his richer and younger peer. 'Oh no' he realized, i'm so uneducated and moneyless. Better do something crazy.
