Prejudice shows its face at times in the most unlikely places. It seems to hide in the shadows waiting to show its face in one way or another.

The KKK used it with African Americans; many groups used it to keep women in their place and of course the boy scouts and Salvation Army used it with the gay community.

I will probably lose half of my watchers with this series but hopefully I will gain more and generate some dialog.
