5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT BOOK ON UNDERSTANDING PREJUDICE 7 Feb 2001
By F. Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book, "Why is Everybody Always Picking on Us?", explores the roots of prejudice. I don't think I've seen another book like it. How wonderful if this book could be used in one's social studies classroom! I have learned where prejudice begins, how it is created, how it is perpetuated, and how it can be resolved. This book looks at stereotypes, bigotry, discrimination, scapegoating, racism, and more. It is a wonderfully comprehensive manual for young people and adults alike on understanding our conditioning and the root of prejudice.

By Terrence Webster-Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In response to what two individuals are saying about myself and my books I would like to share with you what many others have said to balance out their unsubstantiated claims.
