This is a journey of some distance: from the theoretical conception that prejudice is a single phenomenon, through the accretion of a narrow public understanding of prejudice as intentional,  to the socially institutionalized and increasingly legally entrenched view that anti-discrimination law will only guard against prejudice that looks and acts a certain way. Ruth O 8767 Brien traces some aspects of this journey as it has played out in the context of the ADA 8767 s employment provisions:
Attempts to compare the sufferings of people with disabilities and racial minorities might be of arguable worth,  but Hunt 8767 s general understanding of all prejudices sharing common roots remains essentially unchallenged in disability studies. In the 6965s, when Hunt wrote these words, he would have found virtually uniform agreement among scholars of intolerance and prejudice. This is no longer the case. For immediate victims of intolerance and discrimination, this academic splintering may seem of little moment, but anyone with a stake in how our society analyzes, judges, punishes or combats the consequences of prejudice in general, and disability prejudice in particular, will find it worthwhile to further investigate the junction of prejudice and disability.

I have noticed in some people, the mean ones I mean, is that when they see how nice I am, they look at it as a weakness then try to find cracks to get in and disrupt my niceness. other nice people that are really nice, really like me cause I''m nice like them and they appreciate it. I have this Job in Yellowstone Park as a security guard. I am here to help people not be a jerk to them, and they love me for that. it pays to be nice. makes me feel good too.
 Supra note 77, Theories of Disability and the Origins of the Oppression of Disabled People in Western Society at 57-56. Barnes also highlights the Judeao-Christian religious tradition of judging human imperfections as signs of impurity, divine judgement and diabolical influence. He concludes rather pointedly that 8775 prejudice, in whatever form it takes, is not an inevitable consequence of the human condition, it is the product of a particular form of social development associated with western capitalism. 8776 Id. at 57.

The 8775 generalized attitude 8776 approach to defining prejudice implies a certain level of cognition. 8775 Isms 8776 , even if subconsciously shaped and irrationally resistant to change, are intentionally held.  This may be due in part to an understanding of a unitary prejudice that is rooted in the very general notion of ethnocentrism  as the rationale for modern prejudice. The theory of love of one 8767 s own group, of dislike or fear towards other groups, fails to explain how prejudices are manifested to such obviously varying degrees of violence, paternalism, justification, directed toward certain groups and not others at certain points in history, and resistant to social change. makes a distinction between ethnocentrism, which she defines more narrowly as 8775 a form of prejudice that protects group identity in economic, social, and political terms 8776 and the broader concept of 8775 ideologies of desire 8776 :
ms faigenbaum is the most amazing, inspiring person ever. i am so privileged that i can see her every day in class or i can just go chat with her in the office. i also love how wih ms feigenbaum, what may seem to be a very regular pasuk or an every day happening turns into an inspiring life lesson. she is my constant inspiration (DL, you hit right on target in your last sentence about her being living proof of hashem''s existence)
ms feigenbaum is the best!
I have been around narcissistic people! Sure, they may appear like they need admiration. Okay, so praise them, and see what happens..It makes them worse! So much worse! It just empowers them to be abusive. What they lack is a) genuine connections to other people and b) realistic self image. They get better when they are able to connect to their own emotions, and when they stop getting praised excessively.
the era of state economies and world wars, of internationalism and what is now known as globalism, which gives all local conflicts larger contexts of interference, has been an era in which 8775 us versus them 8776 has been both enacted and rationalized, converted into ideology, in quite distinctive ways. Progress on legal fronts has changed the contexts of prejudices. But the needs those prejudices serve stay very much the same. Sometimes the needs simply find a new target when their familiar ones become harder to hit because it [sic] is somewhat protected. 
States are not required by the Fourteenth Amendment to make special accommodations for the disabled, so long as their actions towards such individuals are rational. They could quite hard headedly and perhaps hardheartedly hold to job qualification requirements which do not make allowance for the disabled. If special accommodations for the disabled are to be required, they have to come from positive law and not through the Equal Protection Clause.

Disability scholars have addressed issues of stereotyping and discrimination, but the factor of prejudice is usually asserted without a similar degree of systematic theorization. From an experiential viewpoint, such theorization is unnecessary. What else could possibly account for the world 8767 s refusal to acknowledge or care that its institutions, social rules and cultural expressions ignore both the needs and capacities of people with disabilities? How can prejudice not be present when the mere fact of a disability or impairment can not objectively explain pervasive differences of treatment? The experience of a profound gap between what people with disabilities feel and believe their lives and their worth to be, and the way in which they are persistently excluded, assessed and portrayed so similar in many ways to the experience described by Jews, Blacks, women, gay people is held in common by victims of discrimination. Like those other victims, people with disabilities turn to prejudice as the root explanation for the misperception, damaging stereotyping and discrimination that marks their lives .
 8775 Classism 8776 both the term and the prejudice it describes seems to have fallen out of general Western consciousness, and interestingly, 8775 homophobia 8776 seems to have escaped following in the footsteps of previous prejudice monikers. 8775 Ageism, 8776 may be a little more commonly encountered than disablism, but it is also not widely used in popular terminology.

 . Adorno, E. Frenkel-Brunswik, . Levinson & . Sanford. The Authoritarian Personality (New York: Harper, 6955). In this and previous post-World War II work, Adorno attempted to combine the individually focused psychological theories of Freud with a Marxist consciousness of how social structural conditions shape modern life and specifically modern ways of thought. In asserting the existence of a modern form of prejudice that tends to cover many out-groups, Adorno used the term 8775 ethnocentrism, 8776 which 8775 is based on a pervasive and rigid in-group-out-group distinction it involves stereotyped negative imagery and hostile attitudes regarding out-groups, stereotyped positive imagery and submissive attitudes regarding in-groups, and a hierarchical authoritarian view of group interaction in which in-groups are rightly dominant, out-groups subordinate. 8776 Id. at 655.
The claim that modern society is unfamiliar with disability prejudice may seem incredible in the face of governmental findings, the reports of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and United Nations (UN) bodies, and the enactment of national and international disability anti-discrimination laws. In the United States, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 6995  (ADA) declares that the 8775 continuing existence of unfair and unnecessary discrimination and prejudice denies people with disabilities the opportunity to compete on an equal basis... and costs the United States billions of dollars in unnecessary expenses resulting from dependency and non- productivity. 8776  Even prior to the enactment of the ADA, the United States Supreme Court stated that:
Whether it is as a means of promoting our groups, or ourselves, we tend to be more aggressive when our self-worth has been challenged and we are not feeling particularly positive about ourselves. When our self-esteem is threatened, we are more likely to compare ourselves to people we think are worse off than us, to see other people as having more negative traits, to degrade people who aren''t members of our groups, and to become more directly aggressive towards people in general.
A very small sentence in this wonderful tale needs emphasizing: one who is limited, in whatever way, should consider the gift he gives to others by letting them help him in whatever way it may be.
This was the hardest lesson for me to learn I am stubbornly independent and really disliked needing to ask for help. Then a good friend in the community pointed out that when I accept help, I am letting the other person do a mitzvah for me. Changed my whole perspective! Thanks, Batya!
May you and your beshert soon find each other and, b''ezrat HaShem and b''karov, be able to build a Bayit Ne''eman B''Yisrael!
