    Do you think people can change?

    I try to be open to all people by relating to the basic elements of life that we, as humans, all experience. Admittedly, I tend to discriminate against those that take advantage of the generosity of the American people yet refuse to assimilate with us and retain a cultural arrogance of sorts.  This same group of people is often found in the news bilking Medicare and committing other insurance fraud. I have little tolerance for this behavior. In general, though, I choose people based on  moral character and the same things that I seek in my friends - not ethnicity.

    Yah I do. Lies, cheats, thieves, perverts, hypocrites and the like. I would think that the answer to that is a bit obvious...

    Everyone is discriminatory in countless ways. For instance, most of us tend to discriminate against casual association with people who have highly contagious, deadly diseases. Whether or not one approves of discriminatory behavior is a matter of the discrimination he has in mind and his own attitude toward it, but let's not kid ourselves with the delusion we don't practice discrimination. We all do, in thousands of interactions with everything and everyone around us, every day of our lives. It's a basic human survival trait.

    i discriminate against muslims but not to the point where i won't talk to one ,just that i don't want that faith to grow in my country. this religion is bad news for any country contrary to what they say their religion is about. i don't hate the average muslim, i just know that the more people in a country that practice the religion, the more it will effect the freedom, safety and laws of the country.

    Discrimination is not in my dictionary. All men are created equal with one head, two eyes, two legs, sexuals organs etc. Then what is the need of discriminating when the person has everything you have. I believe in equality and impartiality. Thanks

    Yes I do.  My life experience has taught me many things.  One of those is that I can trust my gut.  If someone gives me the creeps and I feel uneasy around them, I don't deal with them or I am very cautious in my dealings with them.  Nothing wrong with a little discrimination IMO. 

    I, like everyone else on this planet have been discriminated against because of this or that.  And it has taught me alot.  I've learned to accept rejection gracefully.  It has inspired me to work to change negative perceptions of me.  And I've learned that I have a right to reject someone based on my feelings and I don't have to feel guilty for not loving every one.  If you have a favorite anything (color, dog, religion, friend) then you discriminate. 

    Yes, people do change.  It's called experience.  None of us act as like we did as a kid or teen.  Life changes you, your actions and reactions.  If it doesn't then obviously you don't have the capacity to learn from your mistakes.

    And steer clear of anyone who says they don't discriminate.  They are lying.  And you will probably have to spend alot of time and energy reassuring them they are above everyone else.

    Yes - against paedophiles, people who neglect and are cruel to their kids or animals, rapists etc. - I discriminate against them because, in my eyes at least, they are the lowest of the low and they are evil! I know I sound harsh but that's the way I feel.
