I don't believe you can change racial prejudice.

I already posted a reply, but I want to add something.

It might not be possible for me or you to change someone's attitude, but is is possible for people to change their own attitude about race.

Look no further than the late Gov. George Wallace. The same man who once stood in the schoolhouse door (literally, at the University of Alabama) to block black students from enrolling, and who famously said, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!" spent the final 20 years of his life speaking at black churches and NAACP meetings, seeking forgiveness for his racist past.
