yes huang262 the "nouveaux riches", another good word is "bourgeois", in fact, bourgois is a pejorative word because it define peoples without taste...
I think we should not laugh about these peoples, because their bad tadte show that they have an identity/respect  problem wich show how our society is sick.
The first time i cam to china, I noticed these young girls with LV bag, I was surprised, because in my country, o ly very rich peoples buy such item.

I don't think Aleh was talking about the Congo, he was referring to his country Argentina.
