Attitudes and Prejudices

It is a commonplace how easily a child of 3 or 4 picks up a foreign language if exposed to it without any formal teaching. Yet we are unwilling to admit that a child of the same age picks up our unconscious attitudes and prejudices without being taught&md;and often retains these longer than any of his formal education.

- Sidney J. Harris
