Rant of the moment

You know what drives me crazy?

When people say:

All Muslims are…

All Christians are…

All immigrants are…

All Africans are…

All anglophones are…

All francophones are…

All trade unionists are…

All Natives are…

All rich people are…

All welfare recipients are…

All Russians are…

All Chinese people are…

All gay people are…

All trans people are…

All physically disabled people are…

No they aren’t. People need to get out of their cocoons and have some face-to-face conversations with these people that they enjoy putting in boxes so much. If people spoke to those who didn’t fit in their own “box” more there would be much fewer prejudices, I daresay…
