about this story

Intro (Pic 1):
Many people make assumptions about a person's personality based on what they see on the outside. It is often assumed that someone like a man with dark gothic clothing, dark makeup, tattoos, and body piercings would be cold-hearted, rough, and rude to others.

(Pic 2):
When in reality, everything people conceive about him is completely false. This man has a huge heart, kind and caring towards other people, and is willing to pull the weight of others who need it. He is a family man and he loves his children. He just likes to express himself through a dark style.

(Pic 3):
People also often assume that some average people you meet who dress in so-called presentable clothing are more approachable and maybe go to church every Sunday will likely be nice to others. In reality, these people may end up showing that they are self-centered, narrow-minded, and look down upon others for the most ridiculous reasons.

Counterargument (Pic 4):
However, due to human nature, sometimes our instincts about a person's appearance are correct. If you were to see a person with makeup that portrayed a clown's face and had blood all over their face, it is reasonable to believe that this person is dangerous and somehow looking to cause harm to or intimidate another person.

Conclusion (Pic 5):
Overall, as was stated in African Journal American Speech of 1944, we cannot judge a book by solely by its binding. Therefore, cannot not assume the best or worst of a human being solely based on physical appearance because there is hidden information in every human being on this earth.
