We’ve all heard not to “judge a book by its cover.”

In the Ad Council’s latest public service announcement, partnering with “Love Has No Labels,” they really show it is what’s on the inside that counts.

The video was shot on Valentine’s Day near California’s Santa Monica Pier.

The “Love Has No Labels” campaign goal is to encourage people to rethink their biases.

The Ad Council posted this powerful description with the video:

“While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. This may be a significant reason many people in the U.S. report they feel discriminated against. Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues. Rethink your bias at lovehasnolabels.com.”

    Each and every human has prejudices. For some it may be color, for others it may be food, nationality, religion, politics, or heaven forbid, sexual orientation. Who’s trying to kid who with this story?

    Now they are openly recruiting.

    But I must admit my previous biases regarding skeleton-on-skeleton have been re-thought.

    I have a bias and prejudice against bank robbers, child molesters, and drug addicts. Thinking Americans all have one prejudice or another. Most of us understand what Mother Nature intended, but She doesn’t get it right all the time.
