Freedom Writers, Prejudice and Helplessness...

I just saw Freedom Writers.
I am moved.
I am also left wondering.
Those kids in the movie were prejudiced because of the lives that they had to lead.
Because of the violence they saw. And still Mrs G managed to bring them together.

But the people I know are educated. They have led comfortable lives. They have studied in good schools. They are now in good universities.
What excuse do THEY have to be prejudiced?

Am I strong enough to break such prejudices?
Am I strong enough to deal with them and stand my ground?
Are you?

We all need excuses to over look the 'mode of denial' we live in. Hence... the bias and the prejudice!
