Prejudice is often defined by negative emotional, cognitive, or behavioral attitudes toward another person or group not based on reason, formed through lack of experience, and often expressed unconsciously. Below are some excellent resources to better understand and overcome it.
Scholarly article from the Amodio Lab on the Neuroscience of Prejudice and Stereotyping
Drs. John and Stephanie Cacioppo’s Introduction to Social Neuroscience combines the latest neuroscience with excellent imagery.
Another recommendation is Resmaa Menakem’s My Grandmother’s Hands that details the role of trauma in perpetuating prejudice.
Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt’s Biased also reflects on neuroscience in relation to bias, prejudice, and stereotyping.
Other recommendations include How to Be an Antiracist and White Fragility.
