“Prejudice is taken to mean an opinion formed without reasoning and maintained in despite of it” — Israel Zangwill, Without Prejudice
Today, I allowed myself to try to use reason against prejudice. Worse, I got upset at the deafness. It was a case of pride versus prejudice. I know better and I know that this person will counter reason by repeating the same prejudice in ever-increasing volumes, yet I persisted. I should have walked away.
