A person who is prejudiced for a good reason: He/she is against those who have bad manners, are illiterate, unintelligent, and uneducated. People who are crude, vulgar, and are amoral and are active in terrible behaviors. There's nothing wrong with being a classicist when there are people who are truly abhorrent and are the scourge of society. It's not classicism if those who are of the lower class have less flattering traits that most people would not subscribe for.

Somebody who is against people with bad morals, low income, and little/no education. A CLASSICIST DOESN'T CARE ABOUT RACE OR GENDER, EVEN IF IT'S HIS/HER OWN ONE. Somebody who biases due to race is a racist and gender is a sexist don't get them confused.

If you agree with these statements your a classicist, and not a racist or sexist.
