Posts Tagged ‘On Prejudice’

I have often been asked to be fair and view a matter from all sides.  I did so, hoping something might improve if I viewed all sides of it.  But the result was the same.  So I went back to viewing things only from one side, which saves me a lot of work and disappointment.  For it is comforting to regard something as bad and be able use one’s prejudice as an excuse.

Racism separates, but it never liberates.  Hatred generates fear, and fear once given a foothold; binds, consumes and imprisons.  Nothing is gained from prejudice.  No one benefits from racism.
