Bigotry and Discrimination


First of all, bigotry is just a weird word for racism. So, what do you think of racism? In my opinion, racism does not belong in this society, much less this world. It wouldíve been much better off without it. Do you know what the stupid thing is? We all do it. Even if we donít realize it.
Imagine this situation, say you and your friends of the same race are sitting somewhere, minding your own business, when all of a sudden, a group of people come up to you and start observing your group in the most disrespectful way. I mean you wouldnít really mind. Until they start doing the most shameful thing they can do. They start jeering. About what? Well, take a guess. The way you look, the way you dress, the way you talk, the language that you speak, the way you eat, and the way you walk You wouldnít feel so good about yourself, would you? I donít think so. In fact, youíd even feel pissed off about it. Another thing thatís even worse, is when they do the same thing almost every single day and the supervisors that are around, donít do anything about it.
It has happened to me more than once, more than twice. So many times, Iíve lost track. Every time that it has happened, I expect someone to stop it, but once again, I get let down. I mean, I guess it doesnít bother me anymore, but what about the people that are new to this place? They are used to people that look the same. So when they first experience racism, they really feel bad. They might not even know what to do. Also, they might also think that it is okay to do it someone else and expect not to get punished for it.
I mean isnít that what the great Martin Luther King fought for? He fought for no racism, stereotype, discrimination, bigotry, and segregation. But he we are, always judging someone else. I guess we have no respect for each other. If we did have respect for people that are different, then I would not be writing this article about racism.
