  1. I believe that humans, in their inner workings, are very selfish people. We have evolved from the wild, our brains mutating to unsure our survival. From the very basic building blocks of our consciousness we are trained to try to be the best. When we come ahead in life (new job, clothes, more money) we tend to get a boost in ego. I think our brains have morphed to believe that success is key top survival, and so when we feel good about ourselves , we try to put others down. We judge people that we simply know nothing about, because we feel that we’re better than them.

    1. Human beings as a whole remind me of elementary school children, where we put one another down to boost ourselves up. I totally agree with what your saying and i think my analogy fits with it. We dont want to think that way but were all kind of like prejudice bullies. (I say all because we’ve all been prejudice somehow.)

    2. Personally, I have seen a lot of this behavior in the opposite sense. A lot of the time when people don’t feel as good about themselves, they tend to put down the ones that seem to be doing better than them by saying things such as “They think they’re all that,” or “They think that they’re better than everyone,” or anything along those line. I agree, that humans are very selfish beings. We don’t typically like to see people doing better than us. So we as the selfish people that we are, put those people down to make ourselves look or feel better.

    3. I absolutely agree with you, it’s as though success is an instinct, when you achieve it, you have to react with it while you bathe in your own pride, and its this type of behavior that can tear apart families, or even go as far as start a war. I mean for the past 6 years I’ve had to look at my dad and uncle fight for being the one with the ‘most success’ as per say. Well my dad isn’t really fighting for it, he just does as he pleases, but my uncle he really just wants to top my dad to the point where they hardly ever talk anymore. When my dad gets something brand new, my uncle always wants to top it, just to look down upon his brother and laugh in his face, while in reality this type of behavior isn’t needed. This is obviously the same everywhere else though, people look down on each other when they become better, let it be as small as a mark on a test, or something really big. The need the feel better than everyone else just is like I previously stated almost an instinct, or a reflex.

  2. Personally, I don’t believe that categorization robs anyone from their individuality. Reason being, that they are just words when you’re referring to a certain group of people, like you’re not going to walk up to a group of friends let it be males or females, and say “Hey, people!” I mean you obviously could, but it would be funnier than anything else. On top of that, I’m Dutch, European, white, whatever it is you want to call me, but I’m not going to feel like I’m being robbed from my individuality just because someone puts me in a certain category. Yes, I’m Dutch, but I am still different from anyone else no matter if I’m put in a certain category or not. I do my own little things, fool around, and have my own habits that other people would not, I look different, and my attitude is different so even though I am in a category I am still unique.

    1. Debbie you brought up a lot of good points but, In my eyes I feel categorizing can rob someone of being their own individual. In my own experience I was labeled as a bum because I was native, I was labeled as a druggie because the friends I hung out with in school liked to party on the weekend. It hurts to know that you are being judge because of the group you associate with. It feels like I constantly have to have a sign above my head saying “SOBER NATIVE”. Categorizing right now is a bad thing to me, but with many years we can step out and we can become us as individual, not Dutch and native, but Debbie and Thunder

      1. Love love love the comment Thunder! I hate it when people tease me because I like being home and curl up with a good book and a full mug of coffee or tea rather than going out and partying and literally getting black out drunk. Sometimes people tease me for not wanting to join my friends at a party, and people sometimes even try to force me to go. I’m not the one for drinking, I really am not! I choose to enjoy my life a different way such as working or taking a nap or just spending time with my fur babies at home rather then spending my hard earned money on liquor or stupid things along the line. I feel like i’m mature for my age, I want to save up for college, for a brand new car, and I feel like people don’t realize that its the way I choose for ME. I don’t need to fit in. We CAN be different.

    2. I really like what you said, my opinion is a little different from yours…I hate being categorized, it doesn’t rob me of anything but it does in a way limit me. We have choices and the ability to make our own decision, but nobody asked if people all over the world wanted to be categorized into a group that maybe wasn’t them. We’ve been categorizing people for centuries, it’s really silly but why cant we live without categorizing and putting people in groups that someone else had made years before our time…? I don’t want to be a black person with an afro because when I go out that’s what I hear them say! I’m black and yes my hair is curly but that doesn’t define who I am.

    3. Debbie, I complete with everything you have said. Categorization dose not rob anyone from who they are because they’re just words, they can’t take away who you are just by saying something. That’s why actions speak better than words. Well done Debbie!

  3. I’m not saying it is impossible to not be prejudice, but it is very unlikely because today’s society likes to judge. I’m going to be honest, I judge people in my head, and I’m pretty sure everyone else does too. Mostly everyone I have met, automatically judges. Prejudice is all around us, even in jobs, sports team, and all that. There’s one person I know who hasn’t or doesn’t judge anyone, my grandmother. She accepts everyone and anyone for who they are, and she never has anything negative to say about anyone.

    1. I agree with how this generation is more prejudice or judgmental. I don’t see why elderly people would want to waste their time judging people they probably don’t care about. They lived their lives and the only people they should care about is themselves mostly. I find they’re more understandable and carefree. Some teens today are like that but that’s probably because they learn good things from their grandparents. I believe that people could be brought up with prejudice and it’s like a terrible family tradition.

    2. I agree with you, everyone has judged someone for who they are in their heads before but they never actually said it to them directly. But yes prejudice is all around us and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.

    3. Yeah, I agree with you. Prejudice it`s like a natural instinct for society now. Most of the people, if not everybody, judge any new person, and I don’t think that we can change this. The judgment will be totally wrong when you start talking with this person and know more about this person.

  4. One of the questions on the worksheet that felt important to me was in regards to stereotypes, and whether they can possibly be beneficial. To me, personally, I don’t see a positive side to the issue, despite aligning with some stereotypes in regards to my sexual orientation and gender expression. For example, I identify as queer, and am a part of the LGBT+ community, and I have short hair, dress quite “masculine,” and often speak up around issues of human rights, discrimination, and feminism. Due to this self-expression, and by extension these stereotypes, I am often perceived as queer by those who don’t already know me; more specifically a lesbian, despite my own discomfort with the term and my preference for non-gender conforming labels. However, if I dressed more “girly,” acted more submissive and less vocal on my opinions, I would likely be consistently perceived as straight and comfortable with femininity. In short, stereotypes affect the majority, and the minorities themselves, to where if a person in the minority doesn’t conform to those stereotypes, they’re seen as an outsider within their own community, and are often shamed for that. And, I don’t know about you all, but that just leaves a sick taste in my mouth.

    1. 100% relate to the whole ‘being trapped in a box’ situation. If I ever wear anything other than ‘girly’ clothing, I feel like people are judging me so hard for not slaving over my femininity. I’ve had people call me a boy because I wore a big sweater & jeans. As you said, an outsider in my own community.

    2. I, being a part of a minority group, don’t agree with the part about if you don’t fit the stereotype, you are considered an outsider to your own community. The stereotype of being native would be being lazy, drug addict, mooch off the government and hate white people. In my community there are a many native people who, unfortunately do fit the stereotype. But those who don’t are often helping those with the poor mentality to get better or even befriending them. Natives who are confined to those stereotypes don’t hate those who are out breaking the stereotype, if anything they’re proud of their community members.

    3. This is what’s important right now. We need more people speaking out about things like these and how society pushes us into trying to fit these stereotypes or “gender norms” but in reality we should be embracing who we are as people whether its you’re gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression and all the other areas that touch the LGBTQ+ community. we are told that being gay, trans or bisexual is wrong and that its a sin and that no one will accept you and that you will be judge all your life or that you wont be able to have a successful career because of your sexual orientation. This is why when your young and your realizing these things about yourself and the way you feel about people whether it be that your interested in men, woman, both or maybe even neither of the two Society is trying to control us and mold us into people we aren’t Their as telling us we are wrong for being who we are. Even with recent events we are slowly moving closer to having more and more acceptance towards the LGBTQ+ community but still there’s always going to be people who are prejudice towards this community like how the Orlando shooting in a gay bar a year after America had finally legalized same sex marriage. its almost taking a step back in time as if we cant move on and accept these people for who they are. Being part of the LGBTQ+ community shouldn’t mean we shouldn’t be scared to show who we are and fear showing affection to our significant others in public we should embrace who we are and not have fear of being judge for our actions and being told we aren’t worth anything because of our sexuality.

    4. Liked your piece, I agree that a lot of stereotypes are hurtful to others. The only way I can see stereotypes can be positive is through a comedic effect like talking about stereotypes are a joke, which they kind of are.

  5. I think that I’m privileged, and I was very lucky because I have a family, house, education, I got everything that I need. I’m grateful for everything because some people don’t even have a place to sleep or someone to call Mom or Dad. Next time, when you feel bad because you can’t have that expensive cellphone or that awesome shoes, think about in what I’ve said. About the prejudice, no one is free of it. You’ll always be prejudged, no mater what’s your race, sexual orientation or class. You’ll be judged by your actions, your clothing, the way you talk, almost everything that you do people will prejudge you. I’m not gonna lie, i prejudge too. It’s like a natural thing of the society. But prejudice isn’t all about prejudging bad things, sometimes it is used for good or normal things.

  6. Prejudice is something that I think everyone is guilty of, some time in their life. It’s just the way we think, the things that we’ve grown up hearing the adults talk about and the things that we’ve seen on television. As long as we keep dividing people up into groups and handing out stereotypes, there is always going to be prejudice, even if it’s not intentional. We might see someone one the street and, very fleetingly, think something that we recognize as inappropriate and quickly correct in our minds. I don’t believe that there is a single person on this planet who hasn’t thought at least one prejudiced thought about someone else, even if it’s just a stranger. The problem is that we divide humans into sub-categories: Human beings; white, black, brown; catholic, atheist, Jewish, etc; poor, rich, middle; and so on, and so forth. The categories are endless, and that’s opening the doors to prejudice. Simply the EXISTENCE of groups and categories are inviting prejudice and discrimination. That’s how it is for everything in this world: art, music, sports, clothing. As long as there is something different, then there will always be people who don’t like it, who have favorites, who hate on things that they might not even know a whole lot about, and it doesn’t stop at humans. It might not be the right way, but it’s the way things are, and I don’t believe that we will ever be able to fully get over it. There will always be something else.

    1. Also parents influence prejudice thoughts beyond what the person may think. some parents make comments and are prejudice to others and i believe that can become reflected on the person. Even though they dont think all the people of that colour are going to rob them their parents embedded the thought that the will in that persons head.

    2. I actually completely agree with you, everyone is different in their own way, and we will always have someone who doesn’t like our choices, or what we wear, or what our race is. Someone will always be there to disagree with us. And yes, it is the way things are! Ages ago this was still accurate, such as everything Hitler has done to the Jews. I think that prejudice is a way of living, and yes we did come a long way, but we could make things a little better such as keeping that mean thought inside your head instead of hurting someone with an ignorant not thought out remark. As you said, there will always be something someone doesn’t like. But that’s only my opinion.

  7. If a close friend were to make a prejudice comment I would call them out on it because no one should be prejudice. Also I trust that they would understand why I said something. My family is a bit different because I hate arguing with them they would make it a fight and I don’t want that which means I either leave them alone about it or suggest what they’re saying is wrong, but almost never completely call them out about it even though I feel guilty. Strangers don’t scare me if they say something I’ll call them out I don’t care what they think of me I just hope after the things I’ve said to them that they change their minds on it and understand more. Even if the only impression I make is “that girl was crazy” maybe later they’ll come to understand why I acted crazy.

    1. My family is super rude and I can never call them out on anything they say because they’ll all just gang up on me for trying to be a good person. there’ve been times where they’ve said sexist, racist and degrading things and i’m the only person in the room that seems to be uncomfortable. Also I understand what you mean when you say you hope people will change their minds because I’ve met a lot of closed-minded people who don’t listen to a word I try to say to them because they just wont respect my opinion enough to pay attention.

    2. If anything, I’m the opposite. I don’t call out my friends when they say things that doesn’t sit right with me. More or less for their approval, and I do feel guilty about going along with it. My friends and I have different levels of understanding when it comes to social justice issues and I’d just rather not argue. With my parents, on the other hand, I’m very vocal. I feel most comfortable letting them know how I feel because they’re more likely to hear me out. Most times when I correct their perception on things they don’t go back to their old thinking.

    3. I think this is how all people should be like. If we were all a little more open minded towards people we know nothing about instead of judging them because of a certain way they are the world would honestly be such a better and more accepting place for people. we need to have the courage to stand up to people who are being prejudice and tell them what they are doing is wrong if we slowly take little steps like that we could slowly become much more accepting and open minded about others!

    4. I agree with you. I would 100% call somebody out on a prejudiced comment. With my family, my disagreement with a (prejudiced) opinion can often turn into a fight. That doesn’t stop me though. It’s important that they know that their comment was not very respectful and they should think more about the people or group of people that they are talking about. I would do the same with a friend, or even a stranger. Even if you think that maybe your opinion won’t change their mind, it’s worth a shot either way. What you say back to somebody can really make them think, and sometimes make them re-evaluate their own thoughts, opinion and comments. It is very possible that in the end, what you say can change the way somebody views the world.

    5. I stand up to my mom a lot because she judges for no reason and we argue for like ever until she realizes that I have a good point or vice versa. I think I only stand up to her because we lowkey hate each other and it feels good to actually make her listen to me and I also lowkey let everything else out so like one prejudice comment turns into something else.

  8. I chose the topic of privilege. As a aboriginal woman, I would be oppressed 10 years ago. In my opinion, the times are changing. There are still aboriginal people who believe that our race is oppressed and to them I’d like to say just look around you. Sure there are still disadvantages but the advantages are pretty wonderful. Most of our schooling after high school is funded and there are even seats reserved for aboriginal people. Also, there are jobs within the government set aside of aboriginal people. There’s so many opportunities for us to better ourselves and to leave the stereotypes of us being lazy behind. It’s important to remember our history and how we were previously treated by the government but don’t wear the label of being marginalized.

    1. This is an interesting point to bring up: That we still have advantages alongside the disadvantages. Not just for aboriginal’s, but also LGBT+, people of color, even woman; things are slowly getting better for humans in general, instead of just white, cis men. But, while things ARE better than they had been even 10 years ago (as you said, you’d have been oppressed, Gay/Lesbian’s hadn’t been able to marry in a lot of places, trans being seen as fake, less rights for colored people, ect) we can’t let ourselves stop fighting for equality. Yes, appreciate what he do have now, but never forget the disadvantages. Use the rights that we have now to make even more progress. We still have a long way to get to total equality. You bring up a lot of good points!

    2. Yes we are more privileged then our ancestor in a way, but in another way we are not. Our ancestors were allowed to roam the land and be free but now the population of big cove is getting bigger but the land is staying the same but were only aloud on the reservation to have funding. One of our advantages is that we have most of our university bill is paid for but we have a ridiculous GPA we have to up hold. My Buddy Ricky was going to Dalhousie, His grades were passing but they were not the required GPA he need to keep his funding, so he had to pack his things and go home. Our nation is getting way better but just like anything in this world it needs some work.

  9. I think everyone is little prejudice even allot. Its kind of like an instinct for us as soon as we see something that’s not normal or that we see everyday. If we see someone new that we’ve never met before we automatically start analyzing them and pointing out the different things about them mentally. what they wear what their skin tone is if they have an accent or even their culture. It’s all because we have a sense of pride and that we think that we are better than other people whether it be because of their race or how much money they have but in truth you could be judging on of the sweetest people in your life. Hopefully one day people will be able to have as little prejudice as possible but to do that we still have a long way to go.

  10. My experiences in the class today opened my eyes. I never thought how a prejudice comment could actually hurt someone. My friends and I do joke around and say some pretty prejudice comments, which I’m really comfortable with (too comfortable). The question asking if you would stand up to someone saying a prejudice comment if they were your friend or someone random. I realized that I don’t stand up enough to my friends that do say a nasty comment, which I should to let them known that a prejudice comment isn’t ok. We should all be corrected if we were to say a joke that crosses a line, and that us, as a human race should not be afraid to tell someone that a joke maybe distasteful.

    1. I agree! I suppose, if I were to add something, I would just have to say that among close friends, there are certain jabs that are to be expected, like jokingly calling your pal a nerd or making a sarcastic reply when the time is right, but it varies by social circle. So, while it might be appropriate to call your best buddy a “mean” nickname, to others, it’s seen as horrendously offensive; so rather than trying to call out your friends at every opportunity, I suggest trying to strike a balance, and go with your gut. If you feel that something your friends say directly hurts you, it’s best to let them know, and if they truly care, they’ll listen and learn from it. And, if something they say sounds like it could offend someone from a different walk of life, approach it gently. I’ve lost a few friends from not being able to listen to them use homophobic slurs, and it takes a lot of guts to let toxic people go.
      Best of luck.

    2. I 100% agree! Joking around with prejudice comments like that is okay if your friends know for a fact that your being sarcastic or your just simply joking around. But once its taken to a whole new level its defiantly not okay, it could offend a peer near you or if your saying it directly towards that person it could really hurt them.

  11. In my opinion, the forms of prejudice that are more acceptable than anything else is, example: a girl in your high school that you just met has started in your class, and she asks who your parents are. You say that my dad’s last name is Johnson (a common last name to blacks according to the internet) “oh, that’s your dad’s last name?” and you ignore it. They don’t say anything mean because they’ve somewhat cut themselves off before saying anything ignorant, but you knew what they were getting at, they didn’t say it. (Although you can assume whatever you want and think the worst of it, that’s totally up to you) but if someone has the decency to not say something, then it shows a little bit of doubt in their actions.
    The worst forms of prejudice is judging someone before having any source of knowledge about them. Such as having a Muslim child joining a soccer team, but then not being allowed to play because of her or him wearing a hijab, or not being allowed to play because of the child possibly having terrorists as parents and not wanting them to come to the games. Just the thought gives me a pain in my chest, I don’t know about you.

  12. In my opinion, categorization of people does not necessarily rob them of their individuality. It definitely can at some point, to a certain degree, make somebody feel like they are nothing more than a part of a group. Only when the categories become extremely prejudiced does it rob somebody of their individuality. If somebody were to categorize a Native American as just that, and then give the opinion that all Natives are uneducated, then yes, it would feel as if you, a Native American are being robbed of your individuality. However, it is possible to categorize somebody without robbing them of their individuality. There are many people that can fit into several different categories. For example, somebody can categorize you as a high school student, and yes, you are a high school student, but that’s not all that you are. You just happen to fit into that category. Being a high school student is a part of who you are. Categorization as a whole doesn’t rob people of their individuality. Prejudiced comments in regards to categorization do.

  13. Prejudice is merely ignorance. Fear disguised as hatred overcomes a person causing them to hate (or fear) things they don’t understand. If one doesn’t understand what causes another to be different from them they may become afraid. Of what? Of the other person being better. Other races being better than your own may cause fear due to your own pride. Don’t let this happen. In cowardice one may call the other names and put down the fact that they are different. But in the end it’s just fear and pride

    1. Well, I got your point. But, in my opinion, prejudice isn`t just ignorance. Sometimes people judge others for common interests, you know. For example: I`ve just met that girl wearing a Star Wars shirt today, I want to know more about she.

    2. I agree, people are afraid to be bumped off of their ‘golden pedestal’ by forces, people, or things that are new and unknown to them. I mean I don’t know anyone that enjoys having their ego crushed to pieces, definitely when in their mind that’s the greatest thing about them. So when new things come along they hate on it, judge it, force it into a corner and beat at it until that beautiful new thing is nothing but a shadow of what it used to be, so that in their eyes the people doing the judging, bashing and the hating don’t have to fear about something different or ‘unusual’ to take their place anymore.

  14. Question Number 4: if a close friend or family were to make a prejudiced comment, would you protest? Why or why not? What about a stranger or acquaintance—would you respond to that situation?
    This question is important to me because why would you protest if it might not matter to the person you’re protesting to? It might be a little easier to convince a family member to stop saying prejudiced comments but it just all depends on how stubborn they are. Some people don’t even care about what you’re saying because they’re trying to make a point and they wouldn’t want to listen to you. I guess it also depends on how motivated you are to protest. You could be that one person who always has to have the last word or you could be that one to just say something and leave it at that. It also depends on how positive or negative I feel that day, when or if I hear someone make a prejudice comment, I could fight or not care because it isn’t my problem but maybe standing up for someone could change my mind into helping. But in the end, I wouldn’t protest because no matter what I do or say, people are going to think the same like maybe I can’t change their minds and that’s my point.

    1. This is so true and I never thought of it this way. There are so many people who just don’t want to hear what you have to say, and no matter what you tell them, or how true and logical your points are, they will never fully listen to you, because they don’t want to be wrong or they don’t like to admit when they’re wrong. Especially if you’re younger than the person to whom you’re protesting against: adults vs. children/teens. The issue here is being taken seriously: so many older people will refuse to take the words of someone younger than them seriously, so … what is the point of protesting against someone who is hard headed and stubborn?
      Maybe it’s worth a try to some people, but to others, arguing against the point of someone else just results in being ridiculed and shot down. And that’s completely okay if you wish to stay silent, I think. Sometimes, it just isn’t worth it, and you’ll be able to tell when it IS worth it; you can tell if the person you’re talking to will listen to what you have to say and consider it. And THEN we can speak out.

    2. I agree! I don’t think we should protest against anyone who said anything prejudice to anyone because it’s a natural instinct that we have engraved into our minds. Everyone always judges in their minds, even though they don’t say it out loud because whatever they see or say, is based on something different that don’t go on in their daily life. Would you protest if you had people who thought the same way as you?

    3. Is true sometimes people don’t give other people the chance to say their opinion, or hear them out because some people are ignorant and what other people are saying is not true to them or they don’t believe that. I would always try to stand up and protest because you could change what their saying and help them to understand, just because other people
      you stood up to didn’t listen or understand doesn’t mean there wont be others willing to learn from that. I it’s draining having to repeat yourself but you could be changing a persons idea, and teaching him something that he in return could teach someone else who talked just like they did once.

    4. I respectfully disagree. While it’s definitely hard to speak up to someone who you recognize as saying something prejudiced, especially family, even if you don’t change their mind, you might successfully help yourself grow more confident in self-expression. Certain people are steadfast in their own opinions, and hardly anyone is very open to being proven wrong, but if we refuse to try, refuse to speak up, oppressed groups and individuals will spend another day being silenced. And, beyond that, having enough self-worth and confidence to stand up for what you believe in, despite peer pressures, is priceless, and a worthy cause in itself. Protesting is hard, but it’s the greatest invitation of change that we have.

  15. I feel like stereotypes aren’t necessarily a good thing, because I feel like people can be judged a lot easier because of their stereotype. But people shouldn’t even be judged because of their stereotypes, because that’s who they are and who they want to be. I honestly don’t judge people because I know how it feels to judged all the time. I feel like more people are judged in schools more then out of school. Being judged makes the person feel less important, makes them feel uncomfortable. And I think that’s why people stick with friends close to them because they feel more important and more comfortable with their friends.

  16. Probably the most socially acceptable form of prejudice is saying that most of the problems in society are because of heterosexual white men. Social justice warriors and other people in society like to blame white people for issues they or someone else has to go through. Because white people have had people of color as slaves and other horrible things or that woman didn’t have the same rights as men do until a few decades ago, it has now escalated to the point where people don’t blame the individuals themselves but white people, specifically white men as the sole source of the world’s problems. Personally I don’t think that all white people are responsible for the deportation of African people to become slaves. The least socially acceptable form of prejudice is almost certainly people of color and woman because our society has evolved to where many things have been censored so as to not offend people which is a mockery of freedom of speech. Now if you say something that is even remotely offensive or even if it isn’t, someone will be offended and soon a lot of people will label you as being racist, misogynist and much more so now people have their own protective bubble “safe space” and ask for trigger warnings. It just seems to me that people have become more immature and enlightened than ever before, even more than white men because a woman can, and this actually happens, claim to be raped without being touched or giving any evidence and the mere fact that the man accused has a rape accusation against him would have him cast out of society and ruin his life.

  17. there are many prejudices that are declining over time.
    blacks can now go in to politics, they can walk down the road with out cops stopping them. There’s still lots of people prejudice against natives but it’s not as bad today as a 100 years ago. Natives can start companies, get good jobs and not called names as much.

  18. I hate prejudice people. OH! And people with blonde hair. Cant stand hypocrites either. These three kinds of people just grind my gears

  19. Darfur Diaries:
    It seemed just so incredible how after losing pretty much everything, and the only things the people owned was the clothes on their back, they still seemed more happier and positive than most people that live around here. It seems as though due to the fact that we take so many things for granted, and have become so selfish and negative, that we have become far to sensitive to all negative things that happen. As we would give up on life if we were to lose it all, they would keep going with a positive attitude and hope and believe that good things are going to come (which they hopefully do).

  20. Is it possible to be free of prejudice? Have you ever met anyone who was?
    In my opinion, people living in the situation where the world is today, is a little hard to believe in any change. For prejudice is present in many places, of course now increasingly this issue is discussed, people are having more opportunities to give their opinion on the subject, but even so, you can still find prejudiced people, especially in social networks, I never suffered any comments peconceituoso, but I’ve seen some of my friends that for being fat, served as the reason for being dubbed whales and among other nicknames. I do not know any person who became free of prejudice and I think I will not find as soon as we are still surrounded by yes people hypocrites, who have forgotten that we are all equal and that color does not define character and dignity of anyone.
