Living in the USA these days gives one a great opportunity to think about racism and prejudice. In particular the negative forms and so I got to thinking about how it works and this is the simplest I can think of.
To treat someone or a group of someone’s worse than yourself/ your group, first you have to treat them differently than your group. To treat them differently, you have to label them differently. So, in my opinion, it starts with the labels. Who have you labeled today?
