And They Call Us A MythI don't know about you but I am personally getting sick of people who exercise prejudice and say all sorts of bigoted things about "psychics."
First off, they don't even know me. They know little or nothing about E.S.P. and they don't even have enough common sense to educate themselves on the subject before they start spewing out a bunch of senseless narrow-minded crap about someone or something that, evidently, they can't even begin to comprehend. They say things like, we are all liars. We are only seeking attention. We manipulate and take advantage of people just to get their money. I do no such thing.
My personal favorite is when someone calls one like me crazy or a liar. Wow! How original. That's all you can come up with? You are obviously insecure and frightened of things you don't understand. I love how you dismiss what you don't understand and throw labels around. Proves my point.
I'd been thinking of what to compare it with besides racism. I've thought of something that I believe to be a perfect example, the "Dark Irish."
Dark Irish, also known as Black Irish, was considered by some "ignorant people" to be a myth for years and years. I'll bet that some ignorant people still believe that it is a myth. These same people actually expect the Dark Irish to totally disregard their oral history, everything they know and had been taught, that has been pasted down from generation to generation, and see it as a myth just because they could not find any evidence of it. Those people don't want to believe that Spanish and Irish people had children together. In their small minds this was impossible because they don't think that enough Spanish people were around to have had children with the Irish at the time. I personally find that offensive and absurd.
I am Dark Irish. Why would I totally ignore something that my family believed for generations just because others don't believe it? I don't. I am not a myth. I know what I am. I know where I came from and I don't need them to be comfortable with the idea in order to acknowledge what I know to be true.
"I experience precognition every day." I am not going to disregard something I know to be true just because some "idiot" thinks it's a myth.
