Discrimination is All About One’s Mindset
Author shares that discrimination is not brought out by what the eyes see or what the ears hear, but of what the mind wants to believe
The mentality of people in general relate to discrimination, even without using black and white, age, race, gender, values, educational level, political affiliation, poverty, rationality, materialism and job applications. Discrimination starts with the mind and is evoked through one’s attitude. It’s not because a person is colored or about his background, but it’s what his mind tells him that pushes him to discriminate others. In this powerful and emotional read, author Anderson Joseph writes journals of his experiences to open the eyes of everyone on “The Mentality of Discrimination”.
Discrimination actually comes in all shapes and sizes, depending on the person who is discriminating. Others are discriminated because they have college degrees, while others are discriminated because they don’t have. They are either overqualified or under-qualified; but still the same, they are disqualified from the selection. Even politics, like terrorism, is an act of discrimination because each party has a different set of ideals and they will not listen or respect the other side since it’s different from their own.
There is no wonder why man continues to search for that seemingly elusive state of happiness and peace. People has already made up some ideas and inferences even before they have met or talked to the person.
