What annoys you more? Prejudice or Sarcasm?

Sometimes you want to go over and smack someone a new personality. I detest prejudice in any form at any time. Its a no-win situation and all it does is promote hate. Sarcasm annoys me to no end, but not as bad as prejudice. What is your opinion?

I dislike both but I would have to go with prejudice more. My husband is an Arab/Muslim and he goes through this all the time. They refer to his being an Arab/Muslim but I think deep down inside it is because he is a hard worker. They just blame it on that because they are jealous of him. He makes more money than many Americans do in this area. I get worse than sarcasm on here. I seems that is one or two people are beating you up the so many want to join.

I'm an American Muslim (my mother was from Turkey - father a Catholic American) and my husband is non-Muslim so we get it from both ends. The muslims talk about me having a non-Muslim husband and he gets flap from others because I am Muslim (BTY as you can see from my avatar, I am conservative and wear the hijab - veil - and long clothes).

Prejudice irks me more than sarcasm. At least with sarcasm, i can put in a last word or make a debate out of it. But i think prejudice is a whole new game. It is based on ignorance that something is different from your norm and because it is different its suppose to be a BAD thing. I've been teaching for 10 years. And what i can say is the latest comment i got from a parent is, " Oh you are a malay. I thought you were a chinese when i talk to you over the phone." I was thankful i had my colleague with me who said " Well, she can speak chinese." I do understand that she mean for it to come up that way. But in front of the kids, it's not a good example to show. Everybody lives in a multi lingual and multi cultural environment. It just goes to show how shallow or short sighted that person is. - Lyn
