I live in a very segregated area - the upper classes are very rude until they are finished testing the waters with newcomers. It was very difficult
my first three years here, seeing as how I no longer have my parents social standing to get me by.
Once they realized I came from a good home and family, behaved appropriately in a variety of social situations, they pretty much let me be.
Within the younger sets, ther eis still a great amount of stereotyping and common prejudices - but for the most part, the older community is just
protecting it's interests.
