A system of beliefs, attitudes, policies and practices that benefit upper class people (the dominant group) and gives them power over working class people. Classism comes from the belief that upper class people (e.g. those with wealth, power and privilege) are better and more important than working class people. Sometimes even working class people believe this. This results in working class people being treated unfairly, including being discriminated against, attacked and denied the opportunities that upper and middle class people have.
