Reading the article, "Fear of a Black Planet" made me very annoyed about the way other people treat those they do not understand or know everything about. It is human nature to notice that a person is different from you based on their hair color, what clothes their wear or their race. It is up to the person doing the judging how they treat that person after judging them that makes a difference. Some people treat others poorly based on their judgments while others use these judgments to treat people the way they want to be treated. Unfortunately these judgments become integrated into society and become negative stereotypes.
I can only relate to the author's experience of being patted down and searched a little bit. As a freshman, going to the new football stadium every student was searched and put into two lines; one for women and one for men. What are times in your life where you felt judged based on negative stereotypes of society?
