Have you ever prejudged someone? To make New Zealand a better place we should accept anyone of any culture. In 2008 2,415 South Africans came to New Zealand. The most common prejudice is by their race, culture, wealth or ethnicity.
Prejudice is judging someone before you know them for example if you saw someone tall your brain comes up with stuff like he must play basketball but you don't even know them. A way you can be prejudged is by your gender, like saying girls are smart and boys smell, or by your parents if their fat that doesn't matter. Someone could prejudge you by your language, or how much money you have like if you're rich they think you live in a big fancy house and if you're poor you might live in a cardboard box or have rags for clothes but you don't know that. You shouldn't judge people about anything.
Prejudice has an effect on people not always nice. Like if you went up to a boy and went “You throw like a girl,” the effect is that they might love shot put and the negative comment might put him off and might not want to do shot put anymore.
