Question

Prejudice can exist without discrimination and vice versa. Comment.

Solution

Prejudices can exist without being shown in the form of discrimination. Similarly, discrimination can be shown without prejudice. Yet, the two go together very often.

Wherever prejudice and discrimination exist, conflicts are very likely to arise between groups within the same society.

Our own society has witnessed many deplorable instances of discrimination, with and without prejudice, based on gender, religion, community, caste, physical handicap, and illnesses such as AIDS.

Moreover, in many cases discriminatory behaviour can be curbed by law. But, the cognitive and emotional components of prejudice are more difficult to change.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
