Discrimination


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

In the last few decades humans have had this thing called “political correctness” where they can’t say what they feel.

Insults are just the tip of the iceberg.  It’s there all the time, when someone isn’t selected for a job, gets made redundant or bullied because of colour, sexuality, religion or where she or he comes from.

Humans are more cautious about who sees them saying what.  Sometimes I overhear some of them saying “you can’t say that” to some discriminating bit of talk.

I can’t understand how they will then stand back and let someone be bullied or refused a job because of what they are.  Surely they should be saying “you can’t do that”? instead of turning a blind eye.

If I saw someone insult Jane because she is a servant, I would literally throw them out the door, making sure to break bones on the way out.

Unlike humans, Old Vampires don’t discriminate.  I know a few gay Old Vampires and have contacts and allies in Europe, Hong Kong, parts of China, and both North and South America.

Our society is open to everyone as long as they’re the right sort of person.  One who has taste, finesse and isn’t vulgar.

If someone asked us to make them an Old Vampire we would gather information on them and then assess them to see if she or he will do.

If she or he is of the peasant class then she or he automatically becomes an Old Vampire Servant.

We cannot make them Debutante Vampires as they just don’t have the finesse for it.

Any New Vampire who becomes an Old Vampire can only become a Vampire Servant as they are of the peasant class and have bad habits that have to be trained out of them, like drinking dirty blood.
