She is half correct. Prejudice persists because the assumptions are not thought about, but where do the assumptions come from? Jacob is correct that there must have been a catalyst to turn the fear of the Other into the assumption that wolves are eating pigs. That’s where Jacob’s earlier comments are important—does embracing their mutated forms necessarily lead to turning on each other? It seems to me that the shadowy forces that were feeding propaganda to Foxworthy are the catalyst Jacob is looking for that is creating the assumptions of prejudice.
