Prejudice

My psychology class recently worked on the topic of prejudice. Many of you may have seen the “brown eyes/blue eyes” experience, started by a teacher in the 1970s.

We tend to think of prejudice as being something big. Something about pushing away others. But an article caught my eye and made me think about it in a different way – prejudice as a result of focusing too much on the ingroup versus the outgroup.
