With all the attention being given to the events transpiring in the northern St. Louis suburb of Ferguson it's easy to allow ourselves to be distracted by all the focus on the "Black vs. White" aspect of the ever-ongoing civilian cold war phenomenon (sometimes going full-frontal from time-to-time).

But let us not forget about all the other disenfranchised members of society:  the American Indian(/Native Americans), or the eternally-impoverished Appalachians (so much for the myth of "white privilege"), or anyone considered "odd", "freaky", or "undesirable" in any way.

"Prejudice" is not a synonym for "racism".  It means any kind of unjust or unreasonable disparaging judgment made against any individual or group.
