Stereotypes only hurt.


  1. Unfortunatelly, all the stereotypes above are much too common; however, when we read them listed this way, we realize how unfair and harmful it is to make prejudgements. I stick to the final sentence: Stereotypes only hurt.

  2. I like it! Thanks for sharing the text!

    Congrats for your blog!
