I'm age 71, so I have been analyzing for most of that period. Prejudice is down significantly for most groups except Black American as the attitude of the more vocal Blacks has worsened and black crime has increased both against whites and against other blacks. Also quotas, preferences and set asides have added to white resentment. Anti Arab prejudice was decreasing, before terrorist began hitting the USA about 1995. Pedudice against Jews began increasing about the same time as many Americans perceive the terrorist as are after the USA because our federal government and some rich and powerful Jews in the USA, have favored and help arm Israel. Anti Jewish feeling are partly jealousy as Jews are outstanding in many ways, and are not very compassionate business competitors. I think people have the right to have moderate prejudices, but clearly blood shed is very undesirable. Elderly Americans enjoy favorable opinions more than ever before. We are sadened that the present teens are rather poorly educated, and have serious attitude problems, but I would not define that as prejudice. Apparently some liberals label people prejudice if they don't believe the lies being told to combat prejudice. I recommend telling the truth. Lies told for a "good cause" typicaly backfire sooner or later and many of us have concluded that most of what we see and hear is half truths, false inferences if not out and out lies. Women have made spectacular progress to the point that important family decisions are typicaly discussed and analyzed, and the final decision is made mostly by the partner who is often correct. The often wrong partner gets to make trivial and low downside risk decisions. Women in the work place suffered a set back when the family leave act passed. Men are more dependable as they rarely take time off for family reasons or quit because they got married or the wife's job moved to another city. Neil
