    Have you ever had the experience of being discriminated against?

    I have had a great deal of this over the years with regards to the fact I am currently dating another woman. The other day I had a rather unpleasant experience while looking for apartments together, and it has been bothering me a bit. I had hoped those sorts of things stopped after high school (wishful thinking right?). So, I'm interested in hearing other peoples stories of all different kinds.

    Too numerous to bother counting. After awhile you get to a point where you stop caring what others think about you as well as refusing to let them stop you from pursuing your happiness. You move on.
    Inequality regarding the unfair treatment of individuals will always be here no matter how many laws are passed.
    Several generations will have to die off to see any real progress with regard to changing what is in people's hearts.

    I'm an atheist, bisexual, mixed race person living in the "bible belt" of America. I've been discriminated against so many time it has become funny. I always just assume they are too ignorant to know better, so in a way them discriminating against me just makes me feel better than them.

    No, but I have come in contact with ignorant people. I never accept whatever is in another person's mind. Their behavior stems from their conditioning, it is their interpretation and their problem. It has nothing to do with me. I live in a consciousness that is beyond the world. So whatever happens in the world is basically irrelevant, even nonexistent. In fact, when I remove my own thoughts, where are others and the world? Every experience is just an illusion, it is imaginary. You can only experience what you allow in your own mind. It is all mental concepts, easy to dispel. Whenever someone meets a negative person, it is a blessing. They are honest enough to let you know that they are ignorant and you should move on to more intelligent people or better opportunities.

    I was discriminated against while raising 6 children. People would ask waitresses to not put us at a table near them causing use to wait long after our turn. They were so well behaved, we would say how about that table they waitress said the table next to that one said they don't want children by them. People would ask me if I knew what caused that, meaning having children. They would say I bet she's on welfare, because I was alway alone, my husband worked out of town. We were denied to rent a lot for our log cabin mobile home we bought do to too many children? It wasn't their house, I guess they thought we would wear out the grass. They said if your situation changes give us a call. What did they think, we'd give part of them away! My husband had a very good job, and took us out to eat to nice places when he was home. People would say out loud, how can they afford to eat at a place like this with a lll those kids. On and on the stories go.
