Five monkeys in a room
In the middle of the room is a ladder, leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling:
Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable.
Soon enough, whenever a monkey attempts to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed on, set upon him and beat him up
Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder.
One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room
Seeing the bananas and the ladder, he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious
But undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder.
All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly and he has no idea why
However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder.
A second original monkey is removed and replaced
The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder, but all the other monkeys hammer the crap out of him.
This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he's not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it
However, he has no idea why he's attacking the new monkey.
One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced
Eight new monkeys are now in the room
None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water
None of them attempt to climb the ladder
All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without having any idea why.
That is how traditions, religion and ethnic profiling get established and followed.
Think twice before following a tradition, religion or negative ethnic profiling
It would make more sense if you get your own understanding to it!
Always have an isolated and informed perspective on all decisions that govern and determine the way you live your life.
