Was the Constitution made to protect the wealthy?

Charles Beard claims that the constitution's structures are more oriented towards protecting the class interest of elites rather than vindicating the promise of the preamble to "establish justice, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity". Is he right?

Please answer this question with reference to the Constitution's text and structures, rather than with reference to the personal motivations and social identities of the framers.

(Please argue that the Constitution WASN'T specifically made for only the elites)
