.One thing that all minorities have in common is that there is a myth attached to them. No matter how high they rise in society or how low they are placed in a hierarchy, every minority carries some kind of myth, which acts as a source of stigma.
.One myth may seem worse than another, but no myth should ever be a reason to dismiss someone. When exposure to something is low, there is a lot more room to make up ugly things in place of facts.
.Caring about human rights means acknowledging that myths are not facts. It means to think about the reality that minorities often don’t have platforms from which to speak their truth, which leaves only the myths circulating in place of authentic voices.
