Kate (a guest user) asked this question:

Language pair:

French > English



Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

porteurs de pêchés


les gens marginalisés sont considérés comme porteurs de pêchés

literally, this means something like "bearers of sin" or "sinners", though that doesn't quite fit here, this is more idiomatic





thought of as having to bear the brunt of their sins

My comment:

Interesting question. But marginalized people are often that way due to no fault of their own.
