When politicians, authority figures, or bureaucrats ignore those who need help, they’re said to be sitting high and looking low. This idiom, almost exclusive to the African-American community, goes back to 1970s. It’s also used in a religious sense, where God is sitting high and looking low, meaning He takes care of the small things. This is part of a complete episode.
