I just watched a video that made me realize that there is still a lot of discrimination in the world, but it also proved that there are many fine and decent people as well. It also shows that many of us just don't want to get involved, but hopefully that may change with a new generation. Here is the link, tell me what you think. http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/451.html

A human being, is a human being, is a human being. What some ignorant people fail to realize is that God created and loves us all. Prejudice means to prejudge and that is what makes it so stupid. All they know about this person is on the outside and only what is on the inside really counts. That video was really sad, but hooray for those who had the courage to speak up.

Hi Rozie, Thank you for watching and commenting. The surprising thing for me was seeing the two completely different attitudes from people in the same area. It was sad to that so many people said or did nothing at all. It was great to see those that did speak up. Blessings.

"As man is imperfect so does a society of men" - Francis Bacon. Francis Bacon is trying to remind us that we are imperfect. Therefore due to our imperfections, we produce our own diseases. Not of the physical but of the social, cultural, and spiritual type.

Hi, I just moved and the speakers aren't hooked up yet to the pewter but I wanted to commend you for a great topic and another way to bring it to light. Its so true and many times it people live with blinders. There's an autobiographical short story my mom wrote where she speaks of her neighborhood in Brooklyn where she grew up, daughter of two tailors and she talks of all the natinalities and how they're all friends. Then, on a family road trip they stop to eat at a diner and are confronted with a sign out front that says, "No dogs or jews allowed". This horrified her and ripped off rose colored glasses so that when she returned she saw her neighbors/shopowners in a new light, aware of tensions and such in interactions. Thanks for the great post!

Yes, discrimination still exist ,but is getting better than before. Most people are willing to relate to others with respect. I live in a rural town and most of the people here respect me even if I'm different from them in regards to my nationality. Most of the people here have a southern accent and I have a cuban accent ,and there seems to be no problem whatsoever. Is really funny because once people get to know you everything changes.

hi. People get discriminated by reason of their religion, race, by the color of their skin, by what they believe in, by their faith and many more reasons. How sad because we are living in the same world, breathe the same air, drink the same water. Yet people tend to discriminate and look down upon someone without even thinking that what if the wheel of life has turned and we are situated beneath others, will we still have the guts to discriminate others. I hope this will end and I commend those whose standards are intact and treat others equally no matter what and who they are. Godspeed.
