Hmmm. I think most POC, under the definition of predjudice you just layed out, wouldn't be considered predjudiced as such. Because most of us form our dislikes and aversions, at least as pertains to the caucasian race, due to experince and direct contact. Not much of which is preconcieved, but formulated as we experience more and more of the disparities and ignorance within the anglo-dominated culture. Nor are most suspicions and fears we hold against the majority irrational, as we have seen what they are capable of and experience the effect of their institutionalized racism on a daily basis, both in our workplaces, and out in public.
Thanks for the food for thought.
