In America, we live in a society where we have differences. As a society, we must learn to celebrate these differences instead of identifying them as a cause for alarm or fear. Says daughter Bernice King, “When my father talked about the beloved community, he talked about everyone bringing their gifts, their talents, their cultural experiences and sharing them.”
Today, even though prejudice is widely denounced, many people unconsciously — or subconsciously — are still pre-judging others. The presidential campaigns and election of 2016 brought out many examples of stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination. Examples of name-calling and biased incidents increased across the nation.
