Prejudice and Discrimination

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

John Gardner Year 10 R.E Coursework 06/05/01 All around the world, there is non-stop prejudice and discrimination. Many think that is possible to get rid off it, and have a chance of living in a peaceful world. These people think that stopping prejudice and discrimination, would not be impossible.

The point I am trying to make is that there are a lot of people in the world who are prejudice or discriminating in the world. Another possibility of getting rid of the unchristian way is to separate all groups who seem to have no respect for others.

Conclusion

If we can get rid of or keep these groups quiet, there is a possibility of banning prejudice and discrimination. Personally, I think that it would be almost impossible to eliminate prejudice and discrimination as long as we have different religions.

I am not saying that religion is the only way, but it is my personal view on how to tackle prejudice and discrimination. ...read more.
