DQ#2 I think that a person might distinguish between the prejudicial and non-prejudicial use of rhetorical devices by trying to determine the purpose of the message, why is the author telling you this message? Or by establishing if what the author is saying is factual and has supporting evidence “non-prejudicial” or something that is being said that is leading to the formation of prejudiced ideas or opinions “prejudicial”. I think the more it evokes emotional responses the more likely it is to be prejudicial, to evoke bias one way or the other. A person might distinguish too by the emotions evoked; does the rhetorical device alone make you feel more favorable or hostile toward the subject? Prejudicial Statement : The people that live in the Projects have children at early ages. Or “A woman will never be able to reach the top of the professional ladder that seems to be held up by men”. Non-Prejudicial Statement
