For instance Jesus Christ was hon this earth and alot of people did not like Him because they do not understand Him.He existed and they wished that He didn't so they crusified Him. Then there is the Cherokee native americans,they existed in the eastern part of the united states and the president didn't want them around the white house area or anywhere on the east coast,so he had them captured and put into prison camps where alot of the native americans contracted a disease which killed them.Then the remaining one's that lived were escourted across the country to land they were told was theirs,how genurous,give them some of their own land! Have you ever thought about that both Jesus and the native americans were treated this way,because the existed ? Can you think of anyone else that was treated unfairly,because they existed?

Yes, my brother, he has a 60 IQ. He was treated horribly because he exists. Many people used to beat him up and yell at him that he was inferior and that he shouldn't exist. My cousin also has a lower IQ and she came home with her coat covered in spit from school. Actually, I can think of many people that were treated badly this way, some of the kids of African American Heritage weren't treated very well at school either. My cousin was a slow learner with about an 80 IQ and 50% Black heritage. He got it pretty bad. It wasn't until our family hit puberty that they were able to fight back and did, quite successfully. People got to a point where nobody wanted to mess with us. But getting friends, that was a really hard thing. Esp. for my brothers.

People can be so cruel.I was born in 1961,so black people were not treated so much lower class by then.But they were treated badly.Both my boys,now in their 20's had learning disabilities and they were treated badly.I also was a cafeteria hostess at my youngest son's school and was told that the learning disabled class came in first and only used up 2 tables in the cafeteria,but I had to make sure that they were done and out of there by the time the first "normal" class came in because they were not allowed to be in the same room as the "normal" kids.

I'm sorry about all the prejudice both our families have faced. Things are a little better, but not much. I've seen a lot of kids with disabilities who don't have friends or only one friend and that person moves away. But enemies, seem to still have those. I just worked in a school last year, some strides are being made, but not many. Some kids are still being beaten up. Maybe not as many, but some. Take care

Oh yes people have been mistreated from the beginning of time starting with Jesus Christ..It is not fair,whatsoever...The indians were very mistreated and were misunderstood...Then we went and brought the black people to our country and used them as slaves, so so cruel and unjust this was...It is so sad to me that people were born not of their own free will and become who they were without their free will and they are punished only because they existed..i do not understand how the ones who take control,as though they are some Boss, and have the mind to think that they are judge and jury..We cannot help from where we came,ot what color our skin is, and one is no better than the other,except in their own mind...I have thought about this many times, and when i do i also think how thankful i am that i can see past this and treat people of all statues in life as a human being..This feeling comes from the man Jesus Christ who no one understood..

You are totally right,the blacks were also treated unfairly,because they existed.The only true ruler is God.And He gave us free will.But,this people who are in no way comparison to God,ruled and took away a lot of free will from a lot of people.And yes Jesus Christ did teach us about the free will that God gave us and he was misunderstood.

Yes these things were terrible, we only begin to glimpse just how terrible all such things are, but also I can't help thinking that all peoples at one time or another have been treated terribly, whether by another people, or even by their 'own' people, and all for just existing.. I think of it, sadly as human nature.. And one of the ironies is, Jesus' crucifixion was planned all along, to rescue us all from said flawed human nature.. and the natural consequence we see all around us, which is how all things (including us) falls apart (and ceases) for built into this flawed human nature experience is the rescue, cause it was all overcome by Jesus.. - But here's one more thing that gives me pause.. because of imperfection (a result of free-will an offshoot of thinking ability) all suffer some, and some terribly and horrifically.. But God, who is LIfe (itself) suffers, lives through and experiences all sufferings which ever occur.. Why would he put himself through all that? Because he's not making an ant farm or robots, but chose to endow thinking ability and is creating an un-breakable paradise, for aLL are learning good from evil.. in other words I guess, it's my belief that as sad and grievous as it is, without suffering there could be no thinking ability, for we'd all have to remain as very small children.. Of course it's also my belief that not one single 'soul' will be lost.. after all, God is perfect, so the 'end' result simply cannot be anything less than utter perfection and the best possible of all possible outcomes, and yes, it's all in the bible, even if the greatness of it is greatly underestimated by most....
