BHS- Where you want to go, if you love to write!
There are people out there in the world who believe in a certain type of lifestyle, and have a certain set of values, and I believe that that’s a good thing, that everyone has the right to their own beliefs. But when one person finds that their beliefs are more important or better then others, well, that's when segregation occurs. For example, when Hitler believed that his christian beliefs were better than the Jewish people’s beliefs. Because of this he started a mass genocide. Or another example would be the French and English thinking they were above the Native people to the land they were colonising, Because of the difference in lifestyle and religion. There are many other examples of segregation in the history of the world. Now you may be looking at this example and be thinking “well those all happened a long time ago” or “there's no segregation now”. Well that's where you're wrong. Segregation is still a large part of the world today. Even now there are still people in the world who think they are better than others for many reasons including, Race, religion, sex, income etc. A part of modern day segregation is fear. If we start stereotyping a religion or race then we begin to look at everyone who believes in that religion or is of that colour as that stereotype. For example, saying all muslims are terrorists, even though that is just a stereotype and is in no way true. In conclusion, I think that we should all think of each other equally, and treat each other as equals.
