The Impact of Discrimination and Prejudice onthe World Today
To be politicallycorrect, one must not be racist or discriminative to, or have a prejudice of,any social or ethnicgroup different thanthe one to which one belongs to. Nowadays, if one isracist, one is a bad person; it is a writtenlaw virtuallyunwritten, whichstates that one maynot be racist or discriminative in anyway, that all humansare created equal.
