People judge by the outward appearance by default. Whether you’re a Filipino, American, Austrian, Jew. Everybody is guilty of this disturbing mentality. Some ignoramus will conclude that you are this and you are that basing on your clothes, hair, skin and race. If you â€œlookâ€ rich or pretty you get special attention, and you will go unnoticed if you are ugly, or be treated harshly if you resemble a terrorist.
Just recently, a drummer of a rock band Deicide had been falsely accused of bank robbery. Okay, it was just suspicion. He was suspected of robbing a bank. The mess started when he went to the bank to deposit some money that their band earned the previous night from merch sales (t-shirts, CDs etc). The bank staff got suspicious because his appearance and amount of money he was carrying wasn’t a perfect match.
