It

You can't escape it.

It's like a wildfire burning up the generations to come

until their hearts are charred

Stereotypes change your world and the way we think of things.

It changes black people

into aliens

who aren't like the whites at all,

not one bit.

It makes you assume that all blondes are dumb,

all Muslims are terrorists,

and it makes you think all Chinese people are smart.

Once you grow up with it,

you live it,

and you pass it on.

It distorts your vision

and makes you think

that all Italian chefs are fat and have curly mustaches,

all woman love to shop,

and the French are the most romantic.

It changes Native American Indians

into spiritual people who love to drink

and are strong, great warriors.

It alters your mind, your heart, and your generations to come.

It's like a wildfire burning up the generations to come

until their hearts are charred

Once you grow up with it,

you live it,

and you pass it on.
