I feel like this world is so unfair, and you're judged just because of how you look. Stereotypes follow you everywhere, hidden within cold eyes.

That is so true and it's so unjust when opportunities are taken away from someone just because of his/her looks. For example, there are many instances where an employer would hire someone over the other because they are more "pleasing" to look at. It's funny how some people can judge you based on sterotypes when they have no idea what you are like as a person and your experiences. Such a cruel world.

Painstreak, this is so true. What you said is unfortunately true about hiring someone based on looks and we definitely have a way of judging people based on stereotypes of their race, gender, etc, like we need to fit people into categories so that it makes it easier for us to think about them. Very cruel world, indeed. Thanks for commenting =)

What is scary is the fact that there are many people who deny that they don't partake in prejudice but in their minds they automatically have stereotypical thoughts about someone. Let's hope we can all teach our future generation to view life beautifully and above all respect and love one another! Amen!

I agree, I do admit that prejudice is hard to control, and sometimes one thinks things before they've realized it. As one culprit, the media has ingrained stereotypes of how we ought to think. Can we ever escape stereotypes? Amen to that, we MUST teach the next generation to view life without bias and assumption, beautiful in its right!
