  1. I often think that people confuse prejudice with being biased. Not really sure how to differentiate the two sometimes, but I think being prejudice or biased is a way people protect themselves.

  2. If there is an umbrella term which may help us to gain a measure of control over our prejudices it is the concept and feeling of guilt. Guilt is a control mechanism which organized confessional religions recognized as a method for controlling church members. It is instilled into thoughts and behaviors by demanding that a person never tells a lie under pain of some form of punishment. Space here does not permit more but one way to overcome prejudice is instilling a self-talk regimen.like ‘Stop these thoughts these people do not deserve it..’
    It may take time for this CBT mantra to work, but it will. CM Saunders
