    refer to

    1. The weak refer to people who are poor, sick or powerless.
    2. The weak are referred to as people who are poor, sick or powerless.

    Are these two sentences both correct? Do they have the same meaning? Thank you.

    Re: refer to

    The first is better if you change "refer" to "refers".

    Some quotes would help, too. "The weak" refers to...
