448. Enlighten a racist or a homophobe
Updated January 30, 2011
I know it seems like an oxymoron or something, but I hate hate. Mostly, I just don’t get it. I don’t understand the entire idea of taking a group of people who share a skin color, sexual preference, or religion and putting them all in a little box and saying, “You’re all this way and I don’t want to have anything to do with you.” It’s frightening when that goes even further and becomes, “You’re all this way and I wish you would all die or just be gone from the Earth.”
I don’t know if I could actually do much to change anyone’s mind, but I feel like I owe it to the rest of humanity to try.
