Can prejudice be excused and if so, to what point?

Prejudice is defined as having a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. The amount of “things” that one can be prejudiced about is endless from race, gender, education to physical appearance. Just to name some stats; in New York City, 88% of police stops in 2018 involved Black and Latinx people while 10% involved white people, and, criminals who were considered more “unattractive” got longer sentences and increased fines of up to 304.88%.
