Synopsis: Prejudice is a word that is often associated solely with race. However, the truth is that we pre-judge all the time based upon countless factors, including gender, age, race, beliefs, politics, or any other infinite number of minute differences. It is a common and universal habit for all of humanity to form an opinion without facts, firsthand experience, and without empathy and value for our fellow man.

What if these habits changed? What if our default response was first to love, to learn, and to listen?

In 'Unmasking Prejudice: Silencing the Internal Voice of Bigotry', Melodye Hilton thoughtfully addresses: The many faces of prejudice and bigotry; Pre-judgment and assumption as societal stumbling blocks; The dangers of gossip, rumors, and slander; The personal pain of prejudice through real-life stories; Our responsibility as humans to stop devaluation by representing a restorative influence.

'Unmasking Prejudice: Silencing the Internal Voice of Bigotry' invites the reader to recognize and remove the hidden masks of prejudice so that he or she can have a hand in changing the cultural narrative and bringing healing to our land.

Critique: Exceptionally timely for a nation laboring under a renewal of prejudice, bigotry, racism, class division driven stereotyping, sexism, chauvinism, cultural bias, religion-based discrimination, and suffering the rise of White Nationalism, the KKK, Neo-Nazis, and domestic-based terrorism, "Unmasking Prejudice: Silencing the Internal Voice of Bigotry" is a necessary and unreservedly recommended addition to every community and academic library in the country. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of students, academia, social activists, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that "Unmasking Prejudice" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $18.95).
