100 words: Prejudice
Bias and prejudice are like the dust bunnies and dead flies that congregate behind the furniture. Those attitudes that you don't recognize as a part of your world view corrupt your clean house and create a subtle invasion of unpleasant presence until one day a friend comes by and drops a pen behind the sofa. In her attempt to retrieve it, she finds your secret store of hidden filth. Embarrassment! You failed to clean there. Your friend requests a donation for drug rehab, and as you write the check, you make a note to clean the drug bunnies from your attitude.
