Prejudice D. Blog

Please view my introduction Voice Thread
People much older than I am think that people my age are not responsible. They do not rely on people my age, because they think they can’t handle it. I have seen a lot of this happening. There are many other things older people think about us.
You can tell older people think you’re not responsible because if they need help with something important, they’ll look over you. They’ll try to find someone older to help them with it. They assume younger people are immature. They think we are lazy. Some people might be lazy, but not everyone is. Six out of ten young people already volunteer with community agencies. Almost nine out of ten teenagers would volunteer to take part in programs to help prevent crime if they knew how to get involved with their communities. From this fact, it proves we are all not lazy. They’ll think you are always childish and can never be serious, but that’s not true. I would say younger people these days know more now. A lot of them have gone through things that people their age shouldn’t. This caused them to know more. We may not be as mature as adults now, but it took them time to get there. Younger people nowadays are pretty mature for their age. Older people think we make irrational decisions. I would say we all make irrational decisions. This makes us learn from our mistakes and become wiser. If you don’t make mistakes, you’ll never learn. Adults do make irrational decisions like we do, it’s not just us. Older and younger people become wiser over the years. Adults also think we do bad things outside of school. I kind of think they almost think we’re in a gang. It’s because of how our world is today. It’s putting a bad name to us as young people. Youth are less likely to be charged with violent crimes than adults.

Assuming we do these things is wrong. Some people may be like this, but not the whole generation. Adults need to give us a chance. We can prove them wrong. They might think differently, but if they give us a chance and look at how we act, we can prove them wrong. There is prejudice against young people.
