<p>When people hold prejudicia...

When people hold prejudicial attitudes toward others, they tend to view everyone with the defining characteristic as being "all the same."

They paint every individual who holds specific characteristics or beliefs with a very broad brush and fail to look at each person as a unique individual.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
