Be broad minded

I find some people to be quite narrow minded. If I make a remark that I dislike white, they will interpret my statement that I prefer black and will find extreme examples of why black is bad and attack me on that point.

Some will even make attack me personally. These are not just IB members, but people with an extreme narrow mind.

They will also make judgment of people based on their narrow mindedness and lack of sufficient information.

I observed this behavior among my younger colleagues some 25 years ago. I advised them to be more broad minded. Actually, I told them to have "a wider perspective" and avoid being "judgmental".

The problem persists today. It must be the outcome of our education system.
