Pride and Egotism

Location

Prejudiced discrimination is rampant in today's society.

You discriminate because your classmate isn't as smart as you are-

He has never before had an opportunity to be educated.

You discriminate because that teenager's stomach is round with new life-

She had her trust betrayed by an ex-boyfriend.

You discriminate, because others cannot afford the clothes you wear.

You discriminate, because he sleeps in class, the only time he has when he isn't working or providing for his siblings.

You discriminate because she has a speech impediment, but unbeknowst to you, she also had a brain injury that caused it.

Discrimination does not make you better than everyone else.

It just shows that you, of all people, think you are.
