"The word prejudice is an action that kills mind and body"

Defintion fo prejudice; prejudgement, opinion founded on bias; to influence another to prejudice: wrong by opinions and actions.

The only Biblical story that showed the act of prejudice was in the book of numbers, when Moses married and ethiopian women of color:

Numbers chapter 12 - 1 thru 13 ; And MirIam and Aaron spake against Moses ,because of the ethiopian women that Moses married; for he married an ethiopian women.

And the said Hath the Lord indeed spoke only by Moses?, Hath he not spoke also by us?. and the Lord heard it.

Now, the man Moses was very meek above all men which were upon the face of the earth.

And the Lord spake suddenly unto moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, come out ye three; unto the tablenacle of the congregation .

And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tablenacle; and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth

And he said hear now my words: If  there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself know unto him in a dream.

My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.

With him will I speak moth to mouth,even apparently, and not in dark speechs, and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: Wherefore then were ye not yet afraid to speak against thy servant Moses.

 

and anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed.  And the cloud departed from off the tablenacle; and behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and behold, she was leprous.

And Aaron said to Moses, atlas my Lord, I beseech the, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly and wherein we have sinned.  

Let her not be as one dead, of  whom the flesh is half consumed, when he cometh out of his mothers womb.  And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.

The hatred and action of prejudice, has caused many lives and heinous crimes against minorites from Jesus times ,until now.  The bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun, that means what's happening now, has happen then.

I was reared in a home that didn't practice pejudice, we were taught to treat everyone the the same  regardless of the color of their skin.  it's really sad that now days, children are being taught to hate each other instead of loving one another.

I believe that the teaching and up bringing of your children starts in the homes. It's very important for children to be taught to love and respect others. None of us should judge a person by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, a true statement by Martin Luther King.

I don't think people in this world today, realize that it's ungodly to be prejudice against anyone. God's actions against Moses sister Miriam, proves that he doesn't approve of being prejudice against anyone.   We have to realize that people are people regardless of the color of their skins.

Thank you for publishing this excellent article. It is a bad thing to judge people by how they look—color, height, weight, attractiveness. I agree with MLK—it is the content of their character that matters.

Love the painting. It's true, prejudice is taught. So we need to be careful what we teach our children about others through our words and actions.
