Everyone is prejudiced to a certain degree. I shall exclude prejudice based upon
protected class status such as age, race/color, ethnic background, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and/or disability. That is egregiously wrong! I am addressing other components such as social class, looks, mannerisms, a person's characteristics, and other such factors. In other words, what do you feel negatively about?
let me ask u a question: would u consider it to be prejudice if "feeling negatively" is directly the result of negative experiences?
(I'm not referring to isolated incidents)
Not necessarily but please elucidate further regarding your experience. Many people feel negative as a result of negative experiences. It is natural and quite normal. Actually, it is a reflex response to a particular environment and/or situation!
What I mean is like this: I've had numerous very bad experiences with members of a particular religious group; I don't dislike or avoid members of that group, but I -am- extremely cautious when I meet new ones.
