Weekend Opinions Contest -Fighting Prejudice
Closed

Hello Influencers! 

This weekend we'd like to talk a bit out a more serious topic, something that has certainly affected each and every one of you at some point in your life. 

Prejudice can have a strong influence on how people behave and interact with others, particularly with those who are different from them. Prejudice is a baseless and usually negative attitude toward members of a group. Common features of prejudice include negative feelings, stereotyped beliefs, and a tendency to discriminate against members of the group. While specific definitions of prejudice given by social scientists often differ, most agree that it involves prejudgments that are usually negative about members of a group.

Tell us in this weekend opinions contest about how you felt prejudice influenced your life and how you are nowadays fighting the phenomenon of prejudice.

Thankfully I had the experience of being in school of the 60's with all types of people of color and I never looked as them any different. At that time in high school we did have riots, as their voices wanted to be heard and I felt no different toward them for wanting to do what they felt was needed. It not only gave me the knowledge to see everyone has a voice to be heard but to be treated just as I would want to be treated and that is fairly. This lifestyle that I had in my teens gave me respect for everyone and carried out into my jobs; i.e. airlines, to be as one! There is no black and white in my eyes, I see the grey side of differences for all! If only we could bring back morals and values in today's world I feel there would be more 'respect' for each other!

I haven't experienced much prejudice in my life and I do not understand why people feel prejudice towards others who may seem different from them.

I used to hold some harmful beliefs about members of the black community in Minnesota. I am grateful that I have been exposed to more diversity now that I'm older and that I have a better understanding of what people go through and that we're all just humans trying to operate in a broken system.

I could never really understand prejudice people. What's thevpoint of being prejudice? To make a solid staterment about something u don't agree with? That's there either way ya look at it. Just not lighting it up in their world. Because reasons of personalized self justice live unto their reality.

Prejudice has affected my life in a small way because I recognize a person that display this quality is a small person in thought and action.We first have to recognize that we were not created to display prejudice that is something taught by an individual. The bible says at Acts 10:34-35,"God is not partial, but in every nation the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him." That is how I feel on the subject of prejudice.

I am an Army brat and havin* lived in many places I have witnessed prejudice first hand. It has made me more aware of how I treat others. I go out of my way to treat people for who they are not based on anything else.

I dont let prejudice affect me. My brother raised me to treat everyone equally and with love. She was very insistent that her children would understand that judging people was not something they would do, and she made sure that we understood why. I remember fondly a saying she would repeat to us often: "Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love." Thus in turn by teaching me not to treat others this way I was able to learn not to let others treat me this way... And if they did than I simply didn't have time for them in my life.
