Prejudice is as Prejudice Does


by Anna Von Reitz

I was six when I came home and blurted, "Marlene Meyer called me a Kraut!"

My Father blew coffee through his nose and sputtered, "Sounds like she's got a bit of "Kraut" in her, too!"

The emotions were passing so fast on his face I couldn't tell which to believe: ---anger? ---amusement? ---sadness?  

Gentle sadness won. He rocked my curly head with the splayed fingers of his enormous hand and said, "Jah, you are my little zowerkraut!  Wear it with pride!"

So I did.

To this day, if anyone calls me a "Kraut" I just pile more of it on my bratwurst and smile. 

My Mother, always the more devious and political thinker in the bunch, also heard about this dust-up with Marlene.  She sniffed and said, "Always remember that when you label someone else, you also label yourself."

I tucked that away for future reference and found it to be true. 

For the next few years I continued to observe the process of labeling people.  There were, of course, "Rat Finks" in my day.  Nobody knew what a "Fink" was, but it had a suitably unsavory sound, especially when coupled with "Rat" so we said it anyway. 

Forty years later my son informed me that "Rat Finks" are extinct---without ever being on the Endangered Species List---and that "Losers" now abound. 

I remember distinctly the first time I ever heard the word, "Nigger".  I was ten. I asked my Mother--- "Do all these people come from Nigeria?"

"No, dear," she answered wearily, "Only some black people come from Nigeria." She had a vague, troubled look on her face and she also observed, "When you label people it says more about you than it can ever say about them."

That also turned out to be true.

People can throw labels at me all day long and never impact my inner peace.  So don't get upset when I am called names and people try to disparage me personally or accuse me of doing things I am not doing and saying things I am not saying.

In the end, it doesn't matter what other people think of you.  It only matters what you think of yourself. 

If you can look at yourself in the mirror each day and know that you are a good person, that you are working with good intentions, that you are trying to accomplish something meaningful and not just for yourself, then you have what you need to go forward no matter what anyone else thinks or does or says.


Knowing this little secret makes it easy to throw lies and insults aside.  It also clears the way to look each man or woman in the eye and see who they are without labels, too.

  4. I have been called names my entire life. I realized some years ago, that labels hurled at me are reflective of how others feel about themselves.
    I am fine within and without myself.

    I confess...yeah, I can be a queen B*tch! 😇🐝

  5. a man I paid thousands of dollars to assist me with my status called me all kinds of names in front of his class this July, and I told him, "Do on to others as you want done on to you". If someone calls you ugly names, that person is showing their lack of love for Christ and is a bad example for Equity.

  6. I wish i could be as virturous as all of you, but there are a few people i still cant forgive because their abuse of my good heart and innocent(trusting nature of other people...some would call nieve) and took total advantage of it to get thousands of dollars to solve their problems with no intention of even paying a little back. But its not even the money. I can foregive that. Its the complete lack of appriation and respect for what i did for them. Thats what i cant get over. I learned the hard way that no matter how much money you give to people, it never makes them happy for more than a few months. Believe me we(my brother and i) have tried. You cant solve happiness with money alone. There has to be a spiratual factor that can only come from within. And that can only be solved by the induvidual themselves by seeking the "SOURSE" from where it all comes.Without that, there can never be true happiness or peace. And that is a "CHOISE".

    1. As Christ stated: "They came only for the fishes and loaves". Imagine passing up the Son of God in the flesh instead of His words+blessings for the meal only ~?

  13. Well said which is why I try and hold no grudges, now on to other things. I've been able to print the info recorded in alaska evidencing the filing of the non-statutory lien, but can't seem to find the actual financing statement itself for my state. Scanned Retina has a partial page of one. Is there a financing statement filed for each state showing nationals as priority creditors, and if so, where could we get that? that would be good ammunition to use in a court of record.
