Prejudice is a main factor of making decisions because it affects the way we think about people and things in a major way even under extreme circumstances.

Introduction Racial and ethnic concerns have been plaguing the media from rants on social media, to CNN, and even the President of the United States (POTUS) has spoken of racial discrimination in the United States as more than just racial slurs, but instead it’s a deep rooted bias that many Americans preconceive of the many people with whom they interact with. When a person holds on to a negative bias regarding a specific race of individuals or ethnic group, unethical behavior can lead to unwarranted actions and those actions can lead individuals down the wrong path. When it comes to law enforcement personnel, these men and women are like every other person in the world; they are doing a job that many would be unable to perform on an everyday
Guns, violence, ignorance, and marines; how do these all link together? Over periods of time certain groups get stuck with reputations, which are either good and bad. Humans have a tendency to make assumptions or make sense of things, so individuals categorize people into groups. Many of these groups share common characteristics and abilities which can be misunderstood by individuals. This is where stereotypes and misconceptions are formed.
There are many behaviors that deserve punishment. Harassing people, being physically or mentally abusive toward people, killing people, stealing from people, and many more are great examples. When someone has bad intentions, it’s going to be obvious, and they cannot and will not appear friendly or nice because people will be able to see right through them and their bad intentions. If someone lived in a bad government, I do not think they are to be blamed for serving that government, because they may have to choose between that, or death. In that case, they may have good intentions, because they were forced to do something, more than wanting to do that thing.
Racial profiling has a physical effect on victims. Being arrested is humiliating enough as it is, but if you’re a different race it could be even more humiliating.

We all have preconceived notions about the world, its individuals, and groups of people. Some of these thoughts are grounded in fact while other are gross overgeneralization that we have been conditioned to believe. Often, our ideas about the world come from perceived authority figures in our lives such as our parents or the media. This can be dangerous because these sources are often bias and believing in these biases often causes us to judge people without really knowing them. All throughout history and literature we see examples of how preconceived notions have done more harm than good.
Stigma is a strong terrible label that changes a man or woman’s self-thought and social identity. Once a person is labeled by using others, it is usual for that individual to include that label into his or her own self-proposal. For an illustration, if someone in high tuition has been labeled as a nerd, may start to feel of themselves as a loser as a result of different humans’s opinions.

The world is full of many evils, including hate, war, discrimination, poverty etc, and though it is nowhere near as bad as it once was years ago it is still an issue for society today. The idea that an entire group of individuals who share similar characteristics are all the same is known as a stereotype (Kassin, Fein, Markus, Burke, 2013). There are several different stereotypes ranging from gender to race, age, social class, ethnicity, etc. Unfortunately far too often members of different social groups experience discrimination by people who are prejudice towards them because of their social group. The majority if not all people will experience some type of discrimination due to stereotyping throughout their lifetime.
Racial discrimination has always been one of the worst judgements of all time. There are two forms of racism used, moral racism and genetic racism.

Racism still exists today but there is much dispute on how it is interacted and influenced.
Although it is common to see how women are misrepresented, the male population is also victimized by improper portrayal in the media. One could see that the view of masculinity promoted by the media is erroneous and brings about negative feelings in men such as self-doubt and inferiority. False perceptions of how men should be are conveyed in the article, “Are Men the Latest Victims of Media Misrepresentation,” stating that “the media industry tend[s] to characterize men as macho guys, skirt chasers and inept at parenting and relationships. While this may have historically been true, what our results showed is that these characterizations aren’t reflecting the behavior and aspirations of today’s men” (Casserly 1).

I agree with Trudeau’s ideals of how national relationships should operate. In my view, it’s because some don’t prioritize interaction and being open with each other that our current society is plagued by a discriminative feature: stereotypes. The problem affects both our government and social society. Because of stereotypes, there are certain aspects expected from a person because of their race, beliefs, and/or culture. Stereotypes are widely known and are hard to get rid of since, some choose to be ignorant in learning the various types of people we will come to communicate with; their lack of knowledge would force them to use the information available to them, which are stereotypes.
