Hi everyone, we are going to talk about discrimination and being prejudiced. Being prejudice is when someone thinks that someone else is lower than them because of a feature of that person. The feature could be their size, where if they are overweight, they get called fat or obese and if they’re underweight, they get called anorexic or as suffering from bulimia. It could also be because of their skin colour, status, height, etc. Sometimes what others could consider as the smallest reasons on the earth could be the reason for someone to be prejudiced.

There are many famous examples of this, especially the discrimination of black people during the early and mid 20th century. Discrimination happens everywhere and every day.

And stop being prejudiced everyone is equal no-one is better than another. Stop! There are many people who can do big things, but only very few people do the small things. Rosa Parks did a small thing, but her act of defiance on that bus helped
