    What is the correlation between being cultured/having class & one's socioeconomic class & family

    size from which he/she came from? The very mention of a cultured person denotes a person who is well travelled & attuned to the finer things of life. It further denotes a person who came from the more affluent socioeconomic classes as those from such socioeconomic classes had the access to participate in cultural activities.

    More and more it appears behavior especially among the younger generations has less to do with wealth than it does with "discretion".
    Children of "privilege" become drug addicts, are sexually promiscuous, have unplanned pregnancies, and commit crimes too.
    The major difference is their families have teams of lawyers and influence to either "make it go away" or keep it from becoming public in the first place. Also white collar crime is still a crime.
    You look at Paris Hilton who comes from a very prominent wealthy family, numerous Kennedys have sat in front of a judge and it's not uncommon to see very wealthy celebrities and athletes or their children in trouble with the law or not displaying (class) in public.
    Various monarchies have been known to had instances of incest.
    As the old adage goes:
    "No one knows what goes on behind (closed) doors."
    Even with the photo you have of Vanessa Williams. I consider her to be very cultured and a class act. Nevertheless there are many who recall the nude photos in Penthouse Magazine and would hold that against her for life. For many what you do is who you are.

    I like how you address this comment DashingS, and sad how people are not so forgiving as The true God is,Mis Williams is only human as many are .and very young at that age ,and time ,many young people are sort of daring ! But people learn from their own experiences ,pass down to their own young ones as a good and bad experience. Making them more wiser for their future.  Yes some family will be the for runners of trial and error ,when others will learn from a another's choice.
