    There are five stages of prejudice according to Gordon Allport,  author of THE NATURE OF PREJUDICE.   The 5 stages are(1) antilocution  i.e. making derogatory statements/remarks regarding a certain ethnic or racial group,(2)avoidance i.e. having little or no contact with the particular ethnic or racial group in question, (3) discrimination i.e. establishing laws and/or acting in ways to deny equal access/opportunities to members of a certain ethnic or racial group, (4) physical attack of an ethnic or racial group i.e. lynching or mobbing (5) extermination/annihilation-genocidal practices against an ethnic or racial group.   Let's discuss this in detail.

      I love your forums GM.  Prejudice comes from the 'fear of the unknown'.  For some unearthly reason people are afraid of others who look different than themselves.  It's a sad world for sure.  When I lived in South Carolina there is a saying : "strange fruit grow from southern trees".  This was referring to the lynchings that took place there.  There is a popular restaurant in Columbia that has lynching photographs all over the walls and slurrs all over the sidewalk.  It's considered a 'landmark'.  Really?  I thought it was just horrendous.  I had to loose my Maine accent because of the prejudice against yankees.  It was a truely eye opening experience for me.  I bought my first house in Gaston, SC.  Only to find out that my neighbor's father was the Grand Dragon of the KKK.  I sold my house  a year later because I didn't want to be associated with that.  There are good and bad in all races, creeds and colors of people. Unfortunately, we will all never get along.

        It is a shame that prejudice continues to exist.  People have not learned the lessons from genocide.  Genocidal acts are continuing around the world.  When will humanking evolve beyond tribalism and into universalism?
