Username: Queefinator 4000 Title of Story: Growing up and moving out Story: I grew up in a highly racist household in a predominately minority rich neighborhood. My dad actually drove an hour away to take me to a school that had only two black students.
Luckily, I was able to escape the prejudice when I turned 18. I moved out. I love my dad, and I respect his beliefs, but I have a mind of my own. People are people. If people would stop living with stereotypes, and actually got to know someone else, the world would be a better place.
My favorite person I work with just happens to be black, and she is wonderful inside and out. Despite what my dad might think, she is very well educated and is raising a beautiful baby boy all by herself. When I get older, I want to be like her. She has an enriched life and is blessed.
* Having diversity makes people realize the wonderful-ness of all the different cultures around us. And allows us to be more open-minded about different things that make up an individual (:
Learning another's culture is really special, because there's so many differences yet similarities we all share. And each person's language is amazing too, because their words have meanings just like your own as well. So no matter how foreign something is, it all connects together in the end with the similarities and meanings shared.
