Danger: Prejudice at Work!


Comic description: Pete and some of his neighborhood friends are about to play a game of baseball when one of his white friends, Luis shows that he is prejudice toward Pete's new Hispanic neighbors. However, when Luis sees how good the new neighbors are at playing baseball, he no longer questions playing with them. The comic ends with an adult saying "When new folks, kids or grown-ups move into your neighborhood, give them a chance--to be friends and good neighbors!"

[Image description: Superboy punches a huge bolder sending chunks of splintered rocks flying through the air. Superboy says: "Am I using my super-strength correctly, teacher?" Behind him stands a green and red robot teacher who says : "Perhaps! But remember, if you fail ONE of my super-tests, you must give up your Superboy career!"]
