This article describes the different types of prejudice that lead to stereotyping and misjudgments. From this article, I have learnt that prejudice is a preconceived judgment or opinion that is usually based on limited information about a group or groups of people. The most common types of prejudice are those based on race, gender, sexual orientation and disability.
I feel that we should not judge people based on their skin colour or gender as it is unfair and rude to make false comments about them. Everyone should be treated with justice in spite of their race, religion and gender. We all should think twice before making comments or evaluating one's character and personality.
I wonder what good can even come out of making judgments and if there are none, why do people still judge?

From this article i can infer that there are still many acts of discrimination happening in the world today like racism or gender discrimination. There is also social discrimination happening in schools and even in school places. This does not only happen in our time as in the past many acts of discrimination is practised throught the world.This can be seen as the blacks were socially discriminated in europe centuries due to their skin colour. Women in the past are discriminated as they aren't allowed to study, work or have any form of political power in the past as they are females. Eventhough these acts of discrimanation is actively happening in the past it is also rather saddening that mankind does realise his mistakes and infact still practises discrimmination.For example, in school, some of the students are discrimanted as they fat, ugly and slow in processing knowledge. I sometimes wonder when will people change their and begin accepting these group of people in the society. Thus I believe that we should stop discriminating each other but accept each strength and weakness in order to create a utopian society.

This article talks about the different types of acts of prejudice existing today. Prejudice is judgement people make of others which may not be a truth.
