old prejudice

we have old prejudice to kill 
so we can substitute our new ones. 

in prior days and years, mere appearance 
told us what we needed to know: 
now, the same appearance 
tells us something different, 
but still suffices. 

we are now so advanced, morally, that 
images outweigh information, and 
affiliation easily defeats 
empathy
