Suggestion:

Avoid using the word "rich" to describe relationships between people. Instead use the word power.

Reason:

Racism White supremacy is a power dynamic of White over non white. The best way to understand how people interact with one another in such a system is to understand the power relationships between then.

Besides, what does it mean to be "rich" in a system where a more powerful person can take "your riches" unjustly?

Can a person be "rich" in a system of injustice?

Or just more or less powerful?
