Prejudice is a feeling that many people feel several times throughout their lifetime. Some experience it more than others, and I am definitely one of the lucky ones. I have only experienced strong prejudice a few times in the last seventeen years. The only time that I have really felt strong prejudice is against my gingerness. For some reason, gingers are not as common in today’s society, and some people do not completely accept them. I’ve been made fun of for being a ginger several times, but sometimes worse than others. Prejudice is a serious problem in today’s society that most people ignore or look passed.
In middle school, I had very red hair and a lot of freckles, the traits typical of a ginger. Some of my classmates made fun of me because I was a ginger, and even excluded the gingers from their lunch table. This made me feel really horrible, and I really didn’t know how to react. There were many of us, and some of the girls wanted to dye their hair to avoid the prejudice. However, some of us stuck through it. It eventually went away. Everybody who had been making fun of the gingers felt really badly about everything after the prejudice was all over, but it never was completely okay again. The feelings that the people who made fun of gave me and what they put me through is forgivable, yet unforgettable. I was able to forgive them, and I am friends with some of them to this day. However, I never forgot about how gingers are made fun of over something they can’t control, and that made me really think about all the other people that have been victims of prejudice. Even though it didn’t feel very great, it really made me feel empathetic towards people that have experienced prejudice.
Many people have gone through prejudice that was a lot worse than mine, and they probably experienced a lot more hardship than me. The prejudice I felt lasted only a few months, and it was because of a trait that I could have changed if I had really wanted to. I began to really feel for people that had to deal with prejudice for their whole lives. After this, I never wanted anyone to have to go through prejudice, and I protected people going through the same hardships as me. I will never put somebody through what happened to me. Furthermore, the experience of being fairly unjudged made me very sympathetic towards the victim of prejudice.
Being made of for being a ginger did not affect my life very much as for as having my feelings hurt. However it did completely change my perspective on how much prejudice can affect someone’s life. Victims of prejudice and be psychologically scarred for the rest of their life, if the prejudice eventually ends. It is no way to live a life, and nobody should have to go through this horrible thing. I hope one day that prejudice disappears, and that there is a peace upon this earth where everyone gets along.
