  • I am very aware of it and it is around me on a daily basis in many different ways. It comes from ignorance. It is such a simple problem to rectify, that is what makes me soooo angry about it! The knowledge is out there for all (and I do mean everyone, and it does not even cost a cent) to obtain, they just need to make the choice to seek it.

  • I see it a lot down here. I live in south georgia and there is still a lot of segregation in this town. Really sad!

  • I see it more as some people not having enough money and others with money thinking that the ones who do not have alot shouls not be buying or in certain places. I have not seen sexual or radical .

  • I have seen it directed at me over the years. Because of race. Education, money. It is not always about black and white.

  • Very seldom. I sure hear a lot about it in the main stream media, but I see equality, more all the time. A huge increase since I was a child.

  • I'm not very aware of it, for the most part. I grew up in a color-blind family, if you know what I mean, and any stories I heard about prejudice were far far away. However, if I look deep inside myself, I find prejudice. It's not regarding people's skin color, necessarily, but for the last 4 years I've lived a place where people are SO different from where I came from. They seem to range from somewhat eccentric to downright mentally ill. I get so irritated with them! It's really a challenge to me when I realize that I'm being prejudice!

  • I know what you mean. I believe prejudice comes in all forms in all subjects, not just about color of skin. I do have two children that are mixed and have been quite surprised at the lack of prejudice they have faced so far.
