Notes On Difference and Prejudice - CBSE Class 6 Civics
Prejudice means to judge people negatively or see them as inferiors. We fit a large number of people into a single image to create social stereotypes. Stereotypes are misleading.

Girls were not expected to be tough but now they work in army and police. Boys are believed to be tough, while they too can they feel pain as much as a woman and cry.

Children who can’t walk, speak, see or hear are children with special needs. Children with special needs are often presumed to be dumb. However, Stephen Hawkings and Satish Gujral are examples of people with special needs who made a mark in their field.

Stereotypes stop us from looking each individual’s unique qualities and skills. It is neither accurate nor fair to believe in prejudices and stereotypes.
