Imagine a blank white sheet. It's just white, nothing is on it. Then place a small, black dot in the center. The black dot represents a misfit, a mistake of some sort. We don't need to focus on this black dot. Yet on the white canvas, it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Now, imagine a scenario, where a man is praised for his purity, how 'white his heart is'. A crowd surrounds him, just wondering, who is that? Out of the blue a man points out, "Hey, I know him! He borrowed some sugar from me and never returned it!"
Suddenly people start to question. In their realization, they hissed at him, cursing him. But the man really did nothing wrong, he was given the sugar.
I've observed many people crushed by lies, and many more that believed those lies. A whole train begins to form, and the victim is left hopeless, depressed even. Even if they are not lies, I've seen people getting harassed for the wrong he did in the past.
Are we in that train?
