Prejudice is assuming all members of a group are the same. A negative prejudice about a group of humans is bigotry.
For early humans, prejudice was a survival instinct. For example, if someone ate a poisonous fungus and died, others would avoid all funguses. They would miss out on delicious mushrooms, but the prejudice against them would save their lives.
For most of human history, if people saw others who looked different from themselves and those they knew, it was strongly possible that those different people were coming to invade and take over the territory.
But this is the twenty-first century and it’s time we got over bigotry.
The Corona virus has shown us that everyone on our planet is connected and related. We are all one family.
So, come on, people, now let’s come together and love one another right NOW.
