Racism and Prejudice teaches tweens and teens about diversity and acceptance without badgering or insulting their intelligence. This clearly-written book deals with delicate, sensitive issues and answers questions such as: Is it ever okay to hate or discriminate against a person because of their race, gender, ability, or sexual orientation? Obviously it is never okay, and this book provides coping and resistance tools to those who have experienced racism and prejudice, and advice on how to examine and stop hateful behavior to those who have perpetrated acts of prejudice. Quotes from people who have fought prejudice make the topic real. Stories from people who have experienced prejudice and people who have displayed prejudice both shed light on this difficult issue.
