Is Prejudice Real?

Every day more and more stories come out about prejudice impacting peoples lives, but are the stories true? Look for yourself and come to your own conclusion but keep in mind, where there is smoke there is fire.


Not being treated the same by police, is that prejudice?

Ran a stop sign and refused to stop:

White supremacist mass murderer, killed nine people during a prayer service. He fled the scene and was caught during an all-out manhunt. They also stopped at Burger King to get him some food after he stated he was hungry.


Not having gun rights, is that prejudice?

 


Not being allowed to work, is that prejudice?


Being denied a place in history, is that prejudice?


Lied about in the media, is that prejudice?


Criminal activity not treated equally, is that prejudice?


Eyewitness testimony, is he describing prejudice?


Kids feeling worthless in society, is this because of prejudice?

Lack of nutritious food, is this a result of prejudice?

What do you think, does prejudice exist?

  1. It seems that more often than not, the language is flipped to benefit some rather than allow all.

    • Is that true for these? The one that I find most challenging is “Not being allowed to work, is that prejudice?”. The guy in that video was arrested almost 70 times for trespassing while taking out the garbage for the store he worked in.

      To recap, the police arrested him for being at work. That’s a fine almost every week that he had to pay to keep his job.

      Does this qualify?

      The other videos are all equal tough circumstances that I am having trouble getting past.

      • I watched the videos, the problem lies in the fact we are never presented with the entire scenario from start to end, with that small slice of information (who’s to say it is or is not doctored) we immediately choose a side. That’s how we continue to fall for this buffoonery. We must remain critical.

      • Critical thinking is good, that’s why I did some followup. The victims are taking the police to court on those videos, we are finally seeing the correct response to bad behavior which is legal action and not TV entertainment.

        I am very impressed with that one video “Black guy with a gun” , since they enter towns and test gun rights, if the police violate the persons rights they sue the town immediately and get those officers laid off.

        They were having the same thoughts you have. Take action and stop the bad behavior don’t pass new laws or spam tv media.

  2. It’s always been about money, influence and power, and it will remain the same. No matter what anyone says, their desire to be rich and powerful is why they continue to separate us.

    • I agree. It’s sound logic, I would even go further and say its driven by money with everything else as a byproduct.

      But these videos are disturbing. The one with the 80 year old woman seems outside of logic.

      • Yeah, then again, are these people’s experiences used to propagate a bigger agenda? Since they are never viewed as singular in experience or singular in happening.

      • They are, they are grouped into a bad narrative of nation wide prejudice in a nation that is more diverse than any on Earth.

        But again this will end with the new civil groups fighting back with laser focused lawsuits.

      • The spin is put against the mass while the perpetrator is granted ignorance based on skin color or whatever else they can stereotype them as, thereby persecute everyone, rather than treat The perpetrator as a single person.

      • Agreed. This is why I like these new groups that have formed to address the cause. The guy from the store is now in a class action lawsuit. The store owner paid to bring in cameras and filmed the officers breaking the law by arresting the store clerk. Outside groups have come in to organize legal action.

        In another town the entire police force was removed after a lawsuit caused the town budget to go bankrupt for violating rights. The police involved were then prosecuted.

        You are right, the people who cause these problems have to be targeted and removed and the towns that support such disgusting behavior need to pay. This way the rest of us who are not part of it don’t have to suffer under it.

      • I wouldn’t say targeted or removed from a town. Social justice as a whole has been rather perverse, forever.

      • I tend to let the court system make the final decision. If they take the town to court then the court will only punish the town if the law has been broken.

        Loss of money tends to promote change. I believe this is the best approach to the problem. Use the court system we already have in place, prosecute the wrong doers, and fine those who will not end bad behavior.
