My mom always told me not to use the word ‘hate’. She said that hate is a very strong word, and I could never find it in my heart to hate anyone or anything, or at least at the time I couldn’t. At the time I couldn’t know enough to hate, I’m not saying I do now but it’s harder to believe that. I have to say I have a little bit of hate. I hate that people could look at a person other than a person.
What I mean is I hate that people could see a woman and think that just because she’s a woman she can’t do something, or she shouldn’t do something. I hate that people could see a black person and think he’s dangerous or angry. Why can’t people see people for people, see them for who they are as a person.
‘Don’t judge a book by it’s cover’. I really don’t understand how a phrase like this existed for as long as it did, when a lot of people who use it are hypocrites. In my opinion, it’s a natural human reaction to judge someone based on appearance and due to the misguidance of society since the beginning of people, our initial reaction is pretty messed up. It takes an actual human being to see an actual human being, for who they are.
We are all people, we shouldn’t judge on the characteristics we can’t control. Race, Gender Sexuality.
