The expression "Poor choice of words" is a phrase used when someone realizes a person has used misjudgement in their word choice while conveying an idea, thought, or feeling. It does not excuse or change the content or intention of the conversation, it does however admit that you have chosen harsher, hurtful, or inappropriate words when trying to say the same thing.

Preferance and love for the poor? You might mean partiality, but generosity is a much better choice of words.

Typically when the poor are not helped, the poor are left to steal, and kill to meet their needs. So if you are not poor, then it would serve you well to help them so that your house is not burglarized and you are not killed by thieves.
