Prejudices Are a Way of Life

I am half Black and half American Indian. I am a Viet Nam Veteran and 80% non visually functional.

This is my opinion. All people have prejudicial views on something. 

 What makes life difficult is when a prejudicial view is geared toward someone in a malicious manner. And is motivated by lack of common sense and/or hatred.

 Prejudice is the act of drawing conclusions without knowing the facts.

I've been there.

I've been the victim of.

I've been the point of target.

I am capable of handling the diversity of prejudice.

I am capable of helping others handle the diversity of prejudice.

Stand together. Walk together. Work together.

There is no opinion we cannot change.

Absolutely true. Prejudice stems from ignorance and fear of being different.
