12 Angry Men

What prejudice does juror 10 have about "people from the slums"?

I thought he based his decision on whether the kid was guilty or not because of where the kid came from?

He is one of the most fervent attackers of the defendant. Tactless and fairly bigoted, he condemns the defendant as “one of them” right from the start. Juror 10 divides his world between the rich and middle-class with the poor and ethnicity. He has a bias against the boy because he is poor and of Hispanic descent.
