Prejudice is Natural, Discrimination is Not: Some definitions and my personal insight into the world of prejudice prevention. This is an introduction.
School Clubs: After A Gay / Straight Alliance was proposed at East High school in Salt Lake City Utah the community threw itself into an uproar. Out of fear of the unknown and socital prejudges teachers and parents wanted to ban this club. The School District, finding that a Gay / Strait Alliance would be accepted under their current policy's found that the only way to prevent it from happening would be to ban all non curricular clubs...... i.e.. Debate Team, Chess Team, Water Polo, Drama Club, Environmental Club and so on. (They would however keep the Football Team by making it a class period supervised by an instructor and give credit for it. Sheesh!). The District called this new proposal "Forced Choice for the Board of Education" so at one of the many public hearings I attended I gave this speech "Freedom of Choice for the Board of Education". (as a side note: Though there was public distress over this club at East, very little media or public attention went towards the newly founded club at West S.A.F.E. (Students Against Faggots Everywhere) Just something to think about.)
