  Encyclopedia article: Prejudice and Discrimination   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Prejudice is a cultural attitude that rests on negative stereotypes about individuals or groups because of their cultural, religious, racial, or ethnic background.
Prejudice and discrimination are deeply imbedded at both the individual and societal levels.
Klineberg (1968: 440) asserts that "[p]rejudice and ethnic hostilities constitute a major danger to peace both within a nation and among nations."

 Prejudice. They hated me without a cause. By Rev. Samuel Cochran. 1844 PREJUDICE.
These attractions and aversions are frequently called prejudices; as, for example, the prejudices of education, the prejudices of party, national prejudiced, denominational prejudices, prejudices in one's favor, or against him, andc.
