I am tired of people yelling at me that I am prejudice. ANYONE who say they are not prejudice are only being truthful if they are a sociopath. Prejudice exists within all of us. Our environment imprints on our personalities a perpetual reaction to certain stimuli. For instance. I grew up in an all white community in an environment where people of color were not allowed to reside, work, or even visit. The neighborhood tried to have the mailman removed from his route because he was of color. This started my bias of white versus people of color. I believe myself to be a good person and had the occasion to befriend several guys of ethnic background and my prejudice did not exist as it did not exist in the other guys. I was reminded abruptly on an occasion when I confronted my associates with their piers I was humiliated by their unfounded hostility they felt was necessary I assume to preserve their security among their similar race. I never got over that feeling and it made me bitter. I went to college and my association with a psychology professor was secure enough for me to present this confusing matter. He laughed and first stated that I needed to pay more attention in his courses, but simply stated. " Everyone is prejudice concerning all matters, it is the degree of that prejudice that is what should concern you most." When I see people of color complaining about how unfair the world is, it seems to me they fail to recognize their own prejudice contained within such statements. If people wish to be treated equal, cease the continuation of how they are so different. This may make little sense to all of you, however I just wanted to get it down in writing to help clear this thought that I have been keeping to myself for a long time. This is very different from racism, but I am sure you all are well aware of this.
