Yes, prejudice can one day be eliminated.

Note: Prejudice is not discrimination! Prejudice has to do with the inflexible and irrational attitudes and opinions held by members of one group about another, while discrimination refers to behaviors directed against another group.

Notions of prejudice

Prejudice has much the same meaning as bias. It is not just an emotion or feeling, a habit or personality trait. It is more an attitude that has been influenced by family, friends, church groups, and first-hand experiences

Humans are not born prejudiced, yet they often cultivate one form of it or another at a very early age

As the person grows older, the prejudice often becomes a well-established part of his inner psychological self. It becomes an inflexible generalization about others that is difficult to change once established
