    The Ones Being Prejudiced Are Not Always Those You'd Think!

    During the holidays, I work in summer clubs for children with physical and learning disabilities. Obviously, some of my colleagues ended up becoming friends. My closest friends are Sara and Xander. Sara is a practising Muslim, she wears a headscarf and fasts during Ramadan...

    It Is Always Wrong.

    If you look at a black man and assume he is uneducated, you are prejudiced. If you look at a man with long hair and assume he is lowlife, you are prejudiced. If you look at a pretty girl dressed sexy and assume she is dumb, you are prejudiced. If you look at a teen with facial...

    Wrong

    it makes me so upset to think about the ways in which people walk around blatantly hating each other for no reason at all. i don't get it. prejudices are almost always rooted in such stupid things too. it's all just ridiculous.

    Prejudice

    I see a lot of prejudice, even here on EP. If you're over a certain age, gay, differently ethnic, or a religious nut, some people just don't want to know you. In fairness, I'm probably prejudiced myself, but I hope only on a subconscious level. I don't think prejudice will...

    I Stand Up Against Prejudices Of All Kinds

    Though the word "despise" is a very strong word, I would not like for bitterness to get the best of me. Prejudice is hard enough on people, yet bitterness will only bring me down. So I say instead, "I stand up to prejudices of all kinds". That suits better for me. My mother...

    I Have [Insert Race/Sexuality/Gender] Friends...So I'm Not Racist/Sexist/Bigoted!!!

    ....You DO know that this is a fallacy, don't you? Just because someone has a particular friend within a particular area does NOT absolve them from being prejudiced. That ONE friend doesn't erase any biased preconceived notions that the person has. It's an excuse. People tend to...

    Live and Let Live

    It's quite difficult to write about this subject without appearing prejudiced. I think the best thing to say is I try to respect all opinions whether I agree with them or not and I think the world would probably be a better place if more people adopted this...

        What happened to the days in an age where no one would make a fuss because you were different. The days we didn't have much to be different about, nor anything more to say to each other than, "Wanna play ball?" at recess. I realize that's a time of...
