Fascinating

I love science-y stuff like this! I also find it empowering to better understand the "evolution" of prejudice. So it evolves from a normal and completely innocent categorization of the world around us so that we can better make sense of it as children. Then when value-centered beliefs are later applied to those categorizations it becomes racism. Even more fascinating that the fix is so simple as to focus on people as individuals rather than merely lumping them into categories. That makes perfect sense but for it to have been studied and empirically proven gives added weight and credibility.
