THE TRUTH ABOUT BLACKLIST+

Blacklist2012

Blacklist: n. to treat a human(s) with suspicion and disapproval and an attempt to ostracize them from an organization(s) which is frequently successful

Historically communists were blacklisted so they couldn’t participate politically and conservatives are frequently effectively blacklisted from the entertainment business and academia job wise.

If you are blacklisted by a group or community then it becomes almost impossible to get a job in a profession even if you are qualified in other ways.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SUSPICION

239 - baby big-eyes suspicion

Suspicion: n. judging intuitively that a subset(s) with little evidence or no proof is the probable cause of an event(s) in the past or the future

Sometimes we may have no proof or just a suspicion that someone is lying to us or stealing from us or an organization. If we investigate thoroughly we may find evidence that our suspicions were accurate.

Sometimes our impulsive feelings are accurate without proof because we have become very skilled at determining small changes in speech or mannerisms which are indicators of lying or deception.

After working for many years in the personnel department or having much experience hiring employees we may sometimes go with our gut or intuitive feelings about a human and not just the details found on a resume.

Sizing up a human based on speech patterns and body language is an acquired skill which few have in abundance because it demands exposure to a wide variety of human personality types over many years. The intuitive feelings of older adults are frequently more accurate than the intuitive feelings of young adults. The intuitive feelings of spouses and close friends about each other are frequently more accurate than intuitive feelings about casual friends.

Blaming or criticizing a human based on a suspicion is a dangerous thing to do overtly because without proof you are merely guessing. In many cases your guesses may be totally wrong and you may wind up offending a human unjustly for something they did not do.

There are also rare paranoid humans who intuitively feel or suspect that almost everyone is lying to them or deceiving them and maybe even stealing from them.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PREJUDICE

43C-Prejudice

Prejudice: n. a wrong and/or unjust judgment and/or opinion which is frequently based on little or no evidence and is frequently an unfavorable opinion with (suspicion and/or fear) and/or hatred frequently added on

Humans who are very different from us can cause suspicion and sometimes fear. Usually the reason is a different physical appearance, sometimes it is a difference in language or even in dialect, and definitely a difference in beliefs.

 

We frequently make impulsive decisions and make judgments about humans with stereotypic names such as he or she is Asian, Hispanic, Black, red neck, hillbilly, or Indian and our mind is frequently flooded with impressions of what we feel about them based on our past limited experiences or what humans have said about them.

 

One word descriptions of humans frequently lead us into making overgeneralized statements such as Indians are drunks, Hispanics are stupid, and Blacks are lazy. Logically all Indians are not drunks, all Hispanics are not stupid, and all Blacks are not lazy and in fact a minority of them are and not a majority are drunks, stupid, and lazy.

 

Language also is to blame for prejudice because words or symbols are not statistical or probabilistic in nature but are absolutes. Unfortunately most uneducated humans think in terms of absolutes such as yes or no, love or hate, beautiful or ugly instead of degrees of love or hate, or degrees of beauty and ugliness. We use absolutes or generalities to inaccuarately describe humans and then wonder why prejudice is so hard to overcome.

 

The only cure for prejudice is an improved language, a constant exposure to all the cultures of the world, or getting everyone to eat all the varieties of food in this world and dressing alike so that prejudicial terms such as Italian and Mexican food and Muslim dress are out of fashion as acceptable descriptions of reality.

 

CONCLUSION:

Even when the whole world speaks the same language, has the same morality, eats the same varied food, and dresses alike there will still be prejudice because there will still be rich and poor and cliquish groups holding on desperately to their group identity.
