DISCRIMINATION IN THE COMMUNITY

Why is discrimination in our community? Why does society have to be so unjust?? People believe that it is ‘natural’ to say and do things to those who are different; THAT IS NOT SO! In fact, a community acts as a main cause of prejudicial treatment in complex situations and instead of coming together, they cause the division and make things fall apart.
With coming together there is a sense of love, support and respect which we all need.
Look at yourself before you talk about other people’s personal business; some day you may be in similar positions as those you discriminate against.
In addition think about those close to you, children, relatives, loved ones, friends, what would they think of you? Is this how they want you to be? What if it were them??
