Prejudice is Alive in the hearts of adults to teens!
People that are much older than me think that people my age are irresponsible and lazy. Some people say that we don’t listen and that we’re all disrespectful. I think they’re wrong. Not all of us are rude and disrespectful. Most of us are not like that . Some elders say we’re all immature and that we aren’t very wise about our choices. I feel like people shouldn’t judge us just because they’ve met one person who is rude, arrogant, or never makes the right choice. I feel like there is too much prejudice coming from elders and that they assume too many things about us. I also feel that prejudice is mean and horrid. Especially if it is used against a minor. I will be proving that this kind of prejudice does exist in the world.
A lot of people think that kids my age are immature and just careless because I’ve seen adults call kids immature because of their silliness or because they’re just laughing at something that adults think isn’t funny. Prejudice can affect all people, not just kids. It can affect all ages and harm all people mentally and possibly physically. Prejudice can cause peoples’ self-esteem to lower. It can cause them to think that there is something wrong with them when there’s really not anything wrong with them. One person posted on the internet that she thought teenage girls who wear makeup look ridiculous. She is very prejudice on the way most teenage girls dress too. Tony from the UK says that kids use too much slang when they talk. Tami from Ireland says that teachers says the kids there are untrained. Another person named Stevan R. says that kids dress ridiculously these days. Some adults say that kids mess around too much and that they don’t care about anything or anyone but themselves. There really are no facts that connect to adults being prejudice against young kids, but from all the opinions and the things I’ve seen happen, I think it’s very convincing and possible that adults are prejudice against young kids.
I think the kids are just trying to be themselves and express themselves. Some adults don’t understand that prejudice can make a huge effect on kids’ lives. I feel like adults are very wrong being prejudice against anyone. Adults have also been giving kids labels. This kind of prejudice is happening all around the world because I’ve seen it happen and many other people also said it happens. I don’t like the fact that this is happening, but it is. Prejudice is not something someone should encourage because I know they wouldn’t want that happening to them. This kind of prejudice is also valid because people just can’t keep their feelings to themselves or they’re just plain mean. I honestly don’t understand why people use prejudice especially if they know it hurts others. I despise when people put labels on others because of the way they dress or from the way they act. Don’t judge, even if you think you know a lot about that person. Prejudice can cause too much tension and I strongly believe it should not be used.
