Bigotry and Prejudice: Learned or Inherited....... or Is It Neither?

There’s debate about whether bigotry and prejudice is learned or inherited. Social programs suggest that intolerance and hatred is learned, that it’s eradicated only by education and changing environments. Well, I have reason to think that it’s neither learned nor inherited, but that it’s hard-wired in the software of imperfection in the DNA of “pan narrans” -- intelligent species who makes up stories. Our lives are big and little dramas of history: unlearning, re-wiring and re-designing the “mobo” of our brains (the mainboard, system board, planar board or logic board, or colloquially, a mobo), clearing out non-survival mapping to optimize possibility. Life is either that or else it’s a eulogy written in language from hidden malware bleeding from a Trojan horse.
