Prejudice as a Practical Weapon 

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

In 1947, the US Department of War created a film entitled “Don’t Be a Sucker”. Seventy years later, the film’s anti-hatred message is as relevant as ever.

You have a right to be what you are and say what you think because here we have personal freedom. We have liberty. And these are not just fancy words. This is a practical and priceless way of living.

But we must work at it. We must guard everyone’s liberties, or we can lose our own. If we allow any minority to lose its freedom by persecution, or by prejudice, we are threatening our own freedom.

Here in America, it’s not a question of whether we tolerate minorities. America is minorities.
