Short for plebian, derived from the period of the Ancient Romans. The plebeians were the general
body of Roman citizens and those
who were privileged were labeled patricians.
Nowadays, a pleb is one associated with those
in the lower class. They often lack
integrity and sophistication, while many
people who consider themselves modern-day patricians often lookdown and mock them.
