I’m not this but you’re that

Isn’t it funny how people make declarative statements like “I’m not prejudiced” or “I’m not judgmental” and then they go ahead and make a prejudicial remark or are quick to judgment, based on the socio-cultural norms in which they’re embedded.  It is extremely hard not to be affected by the attitudes of those around us and when an entire culture is based on hardwired rules and standards that self-impose a particular worldview, it is almost impossible to stand apart and see each circumstance or person for what or who they really are.
