People believe from "accidents of birth" as Thomas Paine once..

said.

"You believe in the Bible from the accident of birth, and the Turks believe in the Koran from the same accident, and each calls the other 'infidel.' But leaving the prejudice of education out of the case, the unprejudiced truth is, that all are infidels who believe falsely of God, whether they draw their creed from the Bible, or from the Koran, from the Old Testament, or from the New."

It is called "brainwashing" at a young age. That is extremely hard to change Mike.
All Jews are bad, all Blacks are drug addicts and pimps, all Italian are mafiosos, all Scots are cheap.
These are examples of prejudiced opinions learned at a young age and from prejudism comes racism.

When I confront these apparant prejudisms, I get personally attacked and am called an ADL propagandist.
