Jesus exemplified God's grace. In John 4, He had a long conversation with a Samaritan woman, although the Samaritans were an ethnic group the Jews despised. As a result, many from her village followed Him. He was quick to heal Gentiles and praise their faith (Matthew ; ). And He taught His church to do the same (Acts ). In the modern world, there is a direct link between prejudice and discrimination. Prejudice is defined as the unjustified negative attitudes that some people hold against others of a certain group of people. Prejudice can include attitudes such as sexism, racism, homophobia, and religious persecution. Prejudices are pre-formed and have no reasonable basis. Discrimination includes. The book The Nature of Prejudice says: “Abominations inevitably result when men use their religion to justify [selfish pursuits] and ethnic self-interest. It is then that religion and prejudice merge.” What is especially striking, the same book observes, is how readily many religious people “seem to slip from piety into prejudice.”. Prejudice often begins in the form of a stereotype—that is, a specific belief or assumption about individuals based solely on their membership in a group, regardless of their individual characteristics. Stereotypes become overgeneralized and applied to all members of a group. For example, as Hodge, Burden, Robinson, and Bennett () point.

Prejudice and Discrimination Prejudice and discrimination can take several different forms. The first item I would like to delineate in this essay is the correlations between prejudice, racism, and discrimination. Prejudices quite often stem from ignorance or a lack of understanding.   Eight important differences between prejudice and discrimination are discussed in this article in detail. One such difference is prejudice is a preconceived opinion, without any basis, information or reason, whereas discrimination refers to unfair treatment of different category of people, on various grounds like age, race or gender.   The same observations that I have made above about prejudice in the interaction between individuals are also relevant in scientific inquiry. A single rare event overturns a rule that says that event is impossible. A single instance of a non-human using language should be enough to show that being human isn't a necessary precondition to language.   Examples of prejudice found in modern society are the common assumptions that African Americans have greater inborn rhythmic abilities and a thicker skull, as noted in a psychology study. Types of prejudice found in modern society include those related to sex, gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, class, religion, disability and language.
