Prejudice and bias comes with our genes. Why? Not trusting the outsider or different is a primitive survival tool. Both are unknowns. When the world was young and dark, dangerous unknowns threatened. The fear lingers on at an uncounscious level.
Studies show that at heart the human race prefers being kind, caring and fair; the problem lies in who we feel deserves to be treated as we want to be treated. The known matter more than the unknown.
As you go about your day, think about who you don’t know and cast outside of your circle of care.
Thank you and stay strong.
