I hate the rudeness, I ain't here to hold your door
I get treated differently depending on the clothes I’m rocking. In a suit aint the same as in my streetwear aint the same as in some gym clothes… We all get judged based on skin color, gender, assumed age, sexuality and socio-economic class and, whenever possible, religion. Psychology tells us it’s a natural human mechanism: before ‘fight or flight’, we observe, draw conclusions and classify. But when we make vast, unhealthy generalizations based on our natural reactions, we have personal problems. And when these generalizations are made on a grand scale, by those in power, on a systemic level, facilitating unjust legislating, judging and policing, we have societal problems… Now, fuck all that. Just be polite. I AM A NICE PERSON. I hold the door open for EVERYONE. And almost NO ONE offers a simple ‘thank you’. The aliens are laughing at us.
