We are living longer these days. That's lovely but it does have it's drawbacks. By the time one reaches middle age blatant and socially acceptable discrimination begins. It is the time when folks begin lying about their age. Not for the usual vanity driven reasons. But mainly because the career opportunities begin to dwindle if you told the truth. And if you're a woman, you're smacked with a double whammy. And a person of color... Well do the math. A grand slam!
We don't think of Children when we think of "Ageism". But the most defenseless among us are discriminated against due to the fact of their age. They are constantly the victims of abuse of all kinds. More often than not by those who are suppose to protect them.
Topic of discussion, with a middle aged woman of color as your host who is also very aware of child abuse! Oy!
