Pay attention to the way you speak about people who you construct as different from you, and be critically reflective and brutally honest of how it makes you feel. Examples include people of a different race, ability, social circle, look, marital status.

constructive purpose it is important to be aware of the ways in which we judge others and how our speech creates and reinforces those judgments that after a while seem to be natural and inherent truths.
