Affluent

Affluent(Noun): 

A wealthy or affluent personThe¬†affluents¬†exhibit far less demographic diversity that is exhibited in any of the lower-income segments of the population.‚ÄĒ Pamela N. Danzinger

I found the word¬†affluent in the article “Here, Poverty¬†And Privilege¬†Are Neighbors; Income¬†Gaps Are a source Of Resentment and Guilt.” The sentence in which the word was found states, “The affluent¬†have their own protection.”

The word affluent is another word used to describe the Rich or wealthy. In the sentence, the author talks about how the wealthy can protect themselves by using their money.
