My Name Is Not "Those People"

You have no idea how much I hate the phrase “Those People” when referring to the homeless and the poor… or anyone actually.  I find it so incredibly offensive, especially when used by Christians and church leaders I know because it’s so theologically vulgar and yet I hear it all of the time.

This poem by Julia Dinsmore articulates my dislike for the phrase better than I ever will be able to.  We are in this together.
