Stop Me If You've Heard This One

Old people are worthless. They waste their life complaining, they can barely drive, and half of them are senile.
They have nothing to contribute to society.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

Teenagers are worthless. They waste their life using their cell phones, they know nothing about hard work, and half of them will drop out of school.
They have nothing to contribute to society.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

College students are worthless. They waste their life partying, they know nothing about an education, and half of them will end up jobless because of their own stupidity.
They have nothing to contribute to society.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

Muslims are worthless. They waste their life praying, they know nothing about faith, and half of them are terrorists.
They have nothing to contribute to society.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one:

And when you stop me, tell me that no one is worthless. Tell me not to waste my time judging someone for what they look or act like, because it will make me seem like I’m the one who doesn’t know anything.
Everyone can contribute to society.
