Prejudice is a way of viewing someone else based on a particular characteristic or a particular stereotype.  In believing, for example, that a certain people act a certain way - "blonde" - we then treat that person in a specific way, usually very negative.  Prejudice is very difficult to escape, and in any piece of literature, we see the effects of prejudice on the ways in which people are treated.  People who are prejudiced treat people in a downgraded way; they often abuse them and can even physically hurt them.  The Logans, like everyone, have their own beliefs about certain kinds of people and thus treat others in the very same negative way they have been treated.
