    Victim Of Ongoing Prejudice And Bullying

    I have been a victim of prejudice, bullying, harassment, exclusion, discrimination, libel and slander since 2010. Local government and the police are the perpetrators so there is nowhere for me to go for protection.

    Predujice, My View.

    Judging people by their outside is like a judge and jury convicting you without even so much as a glance at your case, or even listening to your argument. Is it really fair to hand out a sentence and slaughter someones integrity, emotions and life just because you think you can...

    All

    I truly believe everyone has been the victim of prejudice/discrimination. If not because of your religion, race, ethnicity, or culture it was because of something else. The way you talk, dress, act. The type of music you listen to; whatever. We are all victims and all...

    Prejudice Within the Gay Community

    First off, I just want to say that all forms of prejudice are ridiculous in the year 2008. It's all a result of fear of the unknown. Fear of something different. It makes me sad and feel sick inside to know that so many people hold so many forms of prejudice. Age, race, religion...

    It Might Be Hard to Believe

    but I am a victim of prejudice. I am a white Caucasian young female. It is so common but so rarely spoken about that "white people" (as it has so kindly been put) are just as much a victim of prejudice as anyone else.
