Discrimination is one of the worst flaws among the many existing problems of the human kind. It isn’t race, religion, sex, or age that determines love. What we love is the person behind these walls of prejudices, not the traits that build them. What’s truly sad is that people refuse to believe this, no matter what truth it holds. Ignorance is yet another flaw of the human kind, and it's a flaw not easily detected, nor cured. We are all ignorant, if not in varying degrees. What we don’t understand is that which we are meant to learn, and refusing to believe this provides foundation to the very problem that keeps us from understanding the complexities of concepts such as love. Those who behold this flaw of discrimination cannot know love, and cannot truly love. Discrimination cripples us, and gives us all a disability, not of the body, but of the mind, if we allow it to.
