Preference, not Prejudice

Value is personal all cultures through. Check out the visitors seen in your zoo. Younger kids love to pet the mama ewe while teens want to watch baby snake’s debut. I fancy museums, what about you? Rate old Muslim mosques found in Timbuktu with the bear claw necklaces of the Sioux. Pondering preferences hitherto contentious prejudice we can subdue.

Thanks, Christuraj, when we get past the victim mindset, we can understand the variety of interests which are worth valuing over others.
