These Portraits Of Powerful Men And Women As Societal Stereotypes Are Shocking

Believe it or not, there is a generalized stereotype for just about any sexual orientation or race existing today.

As a matter of fact, some people are stereotyped just based off of their body piercings, tattoos and hair color.

Unfortunately, some people haven't figured out that just by changing the unhealthy way they think, they can make the world a better place.

In order to raise awareness about this ongoing world issue, photographer Joel Parés created a visual series titled "Judging America" that highlights the different stereotypes pinned on people from all walks of life.

No one looks at a person's accomplishments or personality or lifestyle. Instead, people only look at what's on the surface and let their cruel judgements get the best of them.

Parés' series shows both sides.
