Affluent

adjective

definition- having an abundance of goods or riches, wealthy

in the text of “here, poverty and privilege are neighbors”, it says ” the affluent pushed deeper into neighborhoods they had once shamed.”

I understand now that the word is used to show some type of power over the lower and maybe the middle-class people.
