The Daily Post – No Fair

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “No Fair.”

Tell us about something you think is terribly unfair — and explain how you would rectify it.

Most people (myself included) would automatically say that discrimination of any kind is an unfair practice.  Discrimination based on race, gender, origin, sexuality, or disability is an unfair practice that unfortunately still exists in a world that claims to be more tolerant than the one the previous generations grew up in.  Society’s less tolerant still giggle behind the backs of people who don’t look or act like them (you know, like sheep) and make fun of people with disabilities and use words out of context to describe them (as someone who works for a non-profit that has banned the use of that word altogether, I refuse to write it here).  Flags that supposedly stand for heritage, but are actually symbols of a closed-minded, oppressive, and disgraceful past continued to fly until only recently.  And there’s the assumption that an affiliation with certain religions means that you’re automatically like all the extremist individuals who claim their religion told them to act on something of consequence.

It is hard to grow as a society and as people when ideals that were more common several generations ago compromise current thinking.  In order to take a step forward, the errors of the past need to be looked at, but not touched or followed.

Until any of this happens, and only when it happens, things will continue to be unfair for those who attempt to push for progress.
