Extracts from this document...

Introduction

19/09/06 Prejudice and Discrimination Coursework: Skill AO2 - Lifestyles Prejudice occurs when you think badly about others just because of their looks, race, religion, gender or disabilities without actually getting to know them. This is almost natural as we've all at some point in our lives displayed this type of attitude towards certain groups of people, but if you take your beliefs too far, it will lead to Discrimination.

Conclusion

We can try to end prejudice and discrimination in our communities by encouraging our schools and churches to embrace other cultures and religions.

The Christian way of life leads us to try and end prejudice in our community, we have a moral duty to do this.
