Somebody that I dislike but still have to be friendly to, it makes me roll my eyes thinking I have to be polite to this person, is my good friend’s boyfriend. I don’t like him because he is very sexist and very raciest. He always have something to say about someone who looks different from him. For example,with recent events in Sydney and in France, he will say a lot of anti-Islam comments. It makes me so mad, because one person can’t represent 23% of world’s population. He is just intolerant. He doesn’tunderstand, so he doesn’t like it. I hate that kind of person. I don’t just dislike him, I hate him because they are choosing to be ignorant, so that’s why I don’t like him.
I have to be friendly to him because my friend is a very close friend since we were 11 years old. She’s very important to me, and I love her, she helped me with a lot of my life issues, I helped with hers. Her family treat me like I’m their own child,so for me, it is a very important relationship that I have with her. She doesn’t like theway he speaks and some of thoughts he has, so the racist and maybe bigotedthought he has. But because she loves the better things about him, she thinks that she can teach him and educate him.
My parents have taught me to be polite to people even when you don’t like him cuz that’s the only way to win other’s respect and you could change someone eventually.
