Analysis of Dreaming by Monica Zucker

Dreaming, by Monica Zucker, is a sardonic look at how a racist sees a

THE DISCRIMINATION

When Jesus walked the Earth, he brought teachings of how we should
treat any individual equally, regardless of any discriminating

later, we still haven't figured out His words. Not that 'we' includes
everyone - it certainly does not. 'We' refers to those people who are
ignorant.

The Discrimination sings the sad tune of people who have sought to rid
the world of discrimination, sometimes with their lives, yet prejudice
