All humans possess a primitive, basic mental function to form an opinion about the people and things we meet: whether to run away, fight or even eat it.

What is more important is the way we are socially constructed to react to those thoughts. As the video points out to hate is to hurt.

In the week that follows we will examine the psychological causes of and responses to Stigma.
