Unexpected Connections

In the Panic audio story, we learned about the connections between the Rothschild family's prudent investing before the 1873 Panic, 20th century resentment of Jews in general, and Nazi Germany.

How does that affect the way you think about prejudices Americans have today? In a link-riddled post, trace these prejudices' beginnings and/or predict their futures? You can include "positive" prejudices, too. Feel free to use images, biased information and straight up propaganda in this post. You're looking for extreme views rather than balance. Try to predict some of the logical (maybe illogical) ends, and suggest solutions for preventing any negative projections.

We may want to investigate the rise of fundamental Christianity as a possible connection to economic distress.
