There are too many examples of continuing prejudice in America.

Some of the examples are political and partisan and some are specifically based on the attitude and greed of the haves to the have-nots.

Some prejudices are fear based in both the mercantile and social exchanges between whites, blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans.

Some other prejudices are religious. Overt prejudice against Jews, Muslims, Catholics or any minority that is culturally or ethnically different is always misdirected and based on ignorance and the illusion of divine guidance.

In Ferguson, Missouri recently, and as in the past there and elsewhere, we’ve seen prejudice that is tragic and prejudice that is anarchical.

ALL prejudice is wrong. Destroying civic and business properties does not adjudicate a perceived injustice; it only confuses justice with vengeance.

Each of us, whether white, black, or every color in-between, and every belief modality need to look within before we harm, blame, point, yell or burn.
