Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The word prejudice (or foredeeming) is most often used to refer to preconceived judgments toward people or a person because of race/ethnicity, gender, social class, age, disability, religion, sexuality, nationality or other personal characteristics. It can also refer to unfounded beliefs and may include "any unreasonable attitude that is unusually resistant to rational influence." Gordon Allport defined prejudice as a "feeling, favorable or unfavorable, toward a person or thing, prior to, or not based on, actual experience."The first psychological research conducted on prejudice occurred in the 1920s. This research was done to attempt to prove white supremacy. One article from 1925 reviewing 73 studies on race concluded that the "studies take all together seem to indicate the mental superiority of the white race."cite_ref-2[3] This research among others led many psychologists to view prejudice as a natural response to inferior races.show more
