Absolutely not. Prejudice comes from people. It's human nature to judge someone before you know them. And anyone that says they are not judge mental or racist are liars. Everyone has a little prejudice in them. I'm not saying its right but it's human
No , it exists at every place where people of different classes , colours , religions and races are present and there is no country in which there are no differences among people thou it is impossible .
Unfortunately I am unaware of such a place existing. Prejudice is across the board...not just white ppl that are prejudice either. Many races are prejudice against the white race and Americans of every racial background.
Right now, there really isn't a place that you can go to where there's no prejudice. Prejudice is everywhere, unfortunately. But it's comforting to know that soon there will be a time when there will be no prejudice or injustices anymore. Acts 10:34 states that "God is not partial." So he is going to bring about a time when partiality does not exist.
I would agree with dkloven. Children are born into this world as pure energy and love. Though we teach them how to adapt to this world, they can also teach us much truth about the world around us.
Just as a child will carry the DNA of their parents and look like them, so too will the child pick up the beliefs and prejudicies of their caregivers. So it's important for parents especially to be careful what they tell their children because seeds of untruth can also be sown into their hearts. This is where real prejudice first begins.
The bible says that unless we "become as little children", we "shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven". Children are born with an innate (internal) ability to love unconditionally. Even though we can't love everyone this way, if we can begin to see the worth of each individual, we are taking the first step to removing the seeds of our own prejudices.
You are not opposed to a person exercising judgment, as that's what our brains do. It's inherent to our critical thinking. You are asking, "is there a place or time where people accept others without first observing their skin color or style of speech?" I think online and in print are good examples of a color-free community. Other than that, we tend to make judgments of what is "my community" versus "Other" and those are often stereotyped by frequent association.
Practically every single person, including children, practices prejudice. Prejudice is nothing more than making a judgement about something without having all the information available. If you saw a large snake and you didn't recognize what species it was, would you pick it up? Some people will say yes, but a vast majority of people would not because they know that dangerous poisonous species of snakes exist and it is not worth the risk to take a chance. This is a case where a person would be acting prejudice. They don't know all the facts, but they have enough facts to realize that this is a potentially dangerous situation and prudence is the best course of action. Having finite time, we can not possibly take the time to learn everything about a person, or situation before interacting with them. Economy of time requires that we make a snap judgement based off patterns we have observed or experienced in the past.
