A man got on the train and refused to sit down though it was nearly empty and there were loads of seats available. For no good reason, I felt that he considered himself too good to sit down. He was young, had darker skin and long beard that I associate with practising Muslim men but he was wearing western clothes. I wove a narrative around him in my head that was filled with prejudice about Muslim men. And this was based on... nothing except for the fact that he chose not to sit down.
