This post is a bit different. I saw this picture and realized that there are still a lot of people that fall in the trap of making judgements based on outside appearances.
It often comes down to perspective, culture and knowledge or maybe lack of understanding.
I just wanted to make sure that I got my point across without being political. So I used an animal versus a person.
If you guessed that this was a Japanese Racoon Dog then you are right. If you guessed Racoon then you are most likely North American and unfortunately wrong. Or you have visited a foreign zoo where they are considered an exotic species.
So the next time you meet someone new , think about learning more about them and worry less about how they look. You will be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.
