I don't think you understand the concept of popularity. Anyone can become popular regardless of wealth. But it's more about who you are as a person and your reputation that makes you popular. Would you rather that your peers see you for who you are a person and your personality without your wealthy status and the fancy stuff? Because I guarantee you, that's the kind of person that almost everyone will socialize with. Or do you rather be well liked for the things you wear and the stuff you have instead of people seeing you who are as a person?

They don't. And popular with whom?
In my experience, the only people "popular kids" are popular with are themselves. If other people ignored them, they wouldn't be perceived as "popular" at all. No one's "popular" if he or she belongs to a tiny group to which others cannot belong.
That's not popularity. Truly popular people are people whom everyone likes and socializes with.

Themost popular boy in my class when I was at school was from a very poor family. But he had a real talent for witty remarks that made us all howl with laughter. At break time HE was the one people crowded round, not the ones with rich parents. I don't think many of us even knew who was rich.

Because first off who is popular is really not a choice a individual makes. They can try and succeed in being popular. How much money someone has especially someone’s parents is almost completely out of their control.

You are right. Why do many Americans look down on rich kids simply because they are rich? Could it be jealousy?

It's not a right. But it is common to want friends who dress well, do well in school, have self-confidence, etc. Regardless whether their families are "wealthy" or not.
Have you been raised well by your parents? Do you have an outgoing, friendly personality? Respect self & others? You're more likely to be popular.

Any kid has the "right" to become popular, Andrew, but not everyone will. And economic status doesn't matter. Certainly, coming from a wealthy family does improve one's chances of becoming popular, but it's not the only thing that does this.

they have money so people will be friends with them to be able to use them for their money.
