  • This is a very good example of class discrimination and how to overcome it.

    Wow! This episode was very powerful! Cory and Shawn wanted to spend the Thanksgiving holidays together and have dinner at Shawns house. The only problem was, Shawn's family was a lower class family. He lives in a trailer park, and some of the people in the trailer park strongly objected to having a higher class family in their area.

    The families can't seem to get along because of their class. But they learn that it's not about how rich someone is. That doesn't matter. It's who the person is. It's what's inside of them.

    They all managed to set aside their differences and become friends.

    This episode really touched me, especially the end.

    It's a very good example of class discrimination and how we should try to overcome it.moreless
