I had this childhood friend and I'd say he was rich. He was like a second or third generation immigrant and his dad had built up this proper good business.
He was well off and always had the latest things but was such a nice lad and so humble and polite.
I don't get why the rich as a whole are looked at as 'evil' and stuff like that.

Nah just the general narrative that the rich are some fat, greedy, morally corrupt people but honestly the majority of 'rich' people I've met are so down to earth and polite.

Jealousy is a factor, but a lot of the uber-wealthy will probably have treated others like crap along the way.
