I am a Western White Male, I really haven't experienced any prejudice directed towards me in my life. Last week I had a little taste. I was rejected for something I wanted to do, because of something I have no control over. I was authentic and honest in my inquiries and that honesty was responded to with prejudice.
As I reflected on this over the weekend I realized that these people are not rejecting me because of who I am they are rejecting me because of who they are.
This encourages me to look at my own life and who I am prejudiced against and see what they have to teach me about who I am.
