Let's Talk Prejudice
Prejudice is pre-judgment of others. Without realizing it, we see someone and immediately a signal is sent to our brain assessing the value of that person (or group of people) as though we have a right to rank them in a certain class. It’s as though we have an inner grid built in our brain that causes us to evaluate an individual based upon their accent, color of skin, socio-economic status, education, or even body size. In the beginning God created all of humankind in His own image, with great worth and value. When we look down upon another person because of the color of their skin, for example, we are actually looking down at the living God who has breathed into all humanity His very life. And it is not good to look down at God.
