Prejudice is morally wrong. It's also immensely foolish, producing self-inflicted wounds for individuals, companies and communities.If you refuse to hire certain workers because of their sex, race or religion, you will end up with a less-productive workforce and a less-profitable enterprise. If you refuse to befriend people who are different from you in these and other ways, your life will be far less rich and interesting. And if your government refuses to offer equal access to schools and other public services to Blacks and other minorities, your community will be poorer for it.
