Does predjudice come from background, experience, or both?

I know of people who believe exactly like their parents do, but I know of others that have radically different views. I grew up in an inherently racist area (not over the top, just subtle), but I have chosen not to be prejudice. We can succumb to the influence from others, or we can chose to be free thinking and make our own decisions.

Prejudice is taught, it is learned. It does not come naturally, it comes from our environment, fears of anything that is different and the attitudes of people who are around us in our formative years.
