Overcoming Stereotypes REVISED: Draft III

Preconceptions

I'm slowly unlearning
what I've learned to learn:

that white people mean "threat;"

that all cops are mean,

and Marines even meaner;

that the French are snobs,
most straight men macho,
and all the wealthy evil.

I'm progressively learning

it's not about color.

Or language.

Or job or gender,
or status or money.

It's about me.
