As Black History Month Ends....

Driving home from school...

She-Twin (with genuine curiosity): "Mom, which do you think is the worst: discrimination, segregation, or prejudice?"

Mom (without much thought): "Aren't they all pretty much the same thing?"

She-Twin (reproachfully): "They're not at all the same thing! Discrimination is separating into groups. Segregation is treating people differently because of race or religion. Prejudice is a hatred of people who are different than you are...usually because of race or religion."

Mom (ashamed): "Wow. With that in mind, which one do you think is worst?"

She-Twin (with conviction): "Prejudice. Hatred is always wrong, and often leads to the other two."
