Abstract Three points that are implicit in Dixon et al.’s paradigmchallenging paper serve to make prejudice potent. First, prejudice reflectsunderstandings of social identity – the relationship of “us” to “them” – that are shared within particular groups. Second, these understandings are actively promoted by leaders who represent and advance in-group identity. Third, prejudice is identified in out-groups, not in-groups.
