“Prejudice,” is not cool: pre-judging is harmful, limiting our expectations of others, and by projection, actually limiting them. This is so obvious that I feel tempted to not write why, but explanations will help. A prejudice is a frame that creates borders on reality. The result is that anything witnessed will only be understood within the lens of the pre-judgement. The frame becomes unnoticeable to the point where reality itself bends to fit within the borders, and what falls outside the frame becomes immediately “reframed” to match. I believe this to be especially true in societies that emphasize harmony of social concourse rather than individuality. In even the most cult-of-the-individual cultures, social institutions ask for harmony.
