Jarrod Liew Jian Le's insight:

i agree with this as prejudice always rises from small ages and till when they are of a sensible age will remember everything about what they were told about prejudice when they were young and most probably use that mindset when they are older as it is etched in their heads.

I feel that this is a good example of how prejudice is infecting people  through the youth. it starts with primary school when they start learning about each other, why they are different from each other. when they slowly grow up, they start using actions or talking bad against each other. Children should learn that we are all the same underneath. Beneath all that skin and muscles we are all the same we shouldn't discriminate other for we are al the same.

prejudice can spread among the children with their personal experiences baceause children usually donot have much though and get influence and to be belive  easily.Many times parent pass on prejudice beliefs to their children and some  told  their  good friends and most of the time they belief and follow.It will also pass down to their next generation and will keep going.It is because they soak in the assumption and prejudices around them and take them in by way of vicacious learning without thinking about what they are learning with any critical awarness.Therefore,young children often experiences some of prejudice against them throughout their time in school.However we can prevent prejudice from happening among our younger generation.I feel that firstly adult must set good example or role model for them to follow.By allowing them to explore and discover other people cultures ,beliefs, and the things around them,in order to do this adults need to educate and teach children to understand and respect other people differences and the diversity of nature.

This shows how prejudice can actually be developed in an early age if not taught properly. "external instruction and experiences play distinct roles in how children characterize other groups of people" stating that we have to be good examples, not promoting prejudice in any way, so as to prevent children at a young age from getting a habit in criticizing other people, be it their skin shade or negative things that they hear from others. Parents should do their part by focusing more on teaching kids at an early stage about positive elements of equality and diversity, as "young children's "expectations about experiencing prejudice will be shaped by the beliefs that are communicated to them by adults"" Young children should be taught about different cultures and how everyone is equal despite having different racial or religious groups and that the heart is all that matters and nothing else.

I can see from this article that prejudice is different from men and women. Men relate prejudice with anger while women relate it to fear. This explains how people make their decisions and also why they react it certain ways. It also explains that why in history, many things happen because of how men and women apply prejudice. I wonder why is prejudice different in men and women.
