Prejudice

Prejudice, Discrimination and persecution all involve the denial of human rights- right to education, to life, to freedom of expression and to be treated equally under these rights. When prejudice is taken to extreme levels, it involves "dehumanisation" - thinking of someone different, less than a human.
