PYRAMID OF HATE

dis·crim·i·na·tiondəˌskriməˈnāSH(ə)n/1. (noun) the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.

We develop our own identities which help to shape who we are as a person by influencing our actions. Many identities interact with each other (for example, the identities of being happy and being supportive usually compliment each other). With the formation of identities usually evolves into stereotyping, which is Generalizing about a certain race or religion based on one person's actions is very common. Frequently heard stereotypes are that all muslims are terrorists or that all Mexicans are illegal immigrants.

Stereotyping and discrimination can lead to fear eventually, causing people to be fearful of other races or religions (for example, when a white woman sees a black man walking on the same side of the street as her, she might cross it out of fear). Fear then leads to hate and hate crimes and that is where violence begins.

This video regards discrimination and the prejudice behaviors of police officers and all people in general.
