Prejudice Quotes


Though we like to think we have made good progress since the civil rights movement in the 1960s, prejudice is still rife in the land. Perhaps it’s a natural distrust of those who are different from us – those who have a different color of skin, believe in a different religion, or were simply not born in our native land. Or a feeling that somehow others wronged us in some way. Prejudice quotes tackle this highly charged issue, seeking to build bridges, open doors of communication, and find common ground. And sometimes, prejudice quotes make us take a hard look at ourselves, even when delivered in a humorous fashion. Reference.com Definition of Prejudice
