He examines the causes and consequences of stigma and stereotypes on the minds and brains of majority and minority groups.

Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, it threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible. It’s is defined as an attitude toward a person based on his or her group membership. Whereas, stereotypes threat is a kind of situational pressure or stress that targets a negative stereotype.
