I did a bit of keyword research. See if you can guess if these negative keywords were associated with Generation Y or an ethnic minority:

– Lazy
– Entitled
– Poor Work Ethic
– Don’t Pull Their Weight
– Stubborn

Turns out, ageism and racism are two sides of the same coin. These descriptors were used almost equally toward both Generation Y and ethnic minorities on sites with negative biases (and some with positive bias!)

We could all do with a few less -isms in our lives. Intolerance seems kinda ugly, don’t ya think? Is there an -ism for being intolerant of intolerance?
