The breed Pit Bull is sadly discriminated against. While not everyone in the world is against them, millions around the world still are and, in many places, the breed is banned.

As Cesar Millan says, people should "Judge the deed, not the breed."

I pray that one day people who discriminate against this breed will open up their eyes and learn the truth. The Pit Bull breed of dog was accepted worldwide as a beloved caregiver of families. It is sad that people do not realize this.

Judge me for what I am.

Please get to know me for me.

I ask that you won't judge me,

At least until you know me.

No, please don't turn away.

Just because you see me coming.

What did I do to you?

I don't want to hurt you,

I just want to say hi.

You can pet me, I'm friendly.

Wait, why do you cross the street?

Do you not like me?

Are you scared of me?

I'm only taking a walk with my people.

I'm friendly, I really am.

Why won't you give me a chance?

I'm not going to hurt you.

I just want to walk with my people.

Maybe even get you to pet me as you walk by.

But only if you want to, I love people.

I'm just like any other breed of dog.

No, please, I won't hurt your dog.

I just want to say hi if you let me.

Why do you guard your dog?

Do you think I'll hurt it?

I don't understand, I'm friendly.

Why can't you see that?

It saddens me that you fear me.

When all I want is to be friendly.

I love other people and other dogs.

I'd never hurt them.

Why can't you see that?

Why can't you accept me me?

All I want is to be accepted.

Accept me as I am.

I don't want to be judged,

Or discriminated against,

Just because I look a certain way.

Please look at me as an individual,

Don't just assmue I am mean

Because I am a Pit Bull
