Different kinds of Prejudice Today
One fact that everyone can agree on, regardless of where they live in the world, is that people are different. People come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. People believe in different religions, have different political views, and even have differing views on how to raise children. With all the differences in the world instead of embracing those differences and learning from other people, prejudices are commonplace.
What is Prejudice?
According to dictionary.com, the definition of prejudice is “an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.” Another definition is one that appears more accurate for the attitudes of today. The second definition states that prejudice is, “unreasonable feelings, opinions, or attitudes, especially of a hostile nature, regarding an ethnic, racial, social, or religious group.”
In many instances, people who have a prejudice against another group will go out of their way to make life more difficult for those people. Sometimes these prejudices lead to lawsuits and others result in damage inflicted upon a group or individual either physically or through slanderous lies. Prejudice, on any level, can do tremendous damage to those targeted.
