What is Prejudice & Politics?
Short stories about personified countries, aimed at making politics approachable, digestible, and fun. The goal is to explore the motivations and history behind a government’s actions, words, and beliefs. Here are some posts to give you a sense of what to expect:
- What motivations propelled the Korean War?
- How does an uncomfortable family road trip epitomize East Asia relations?
- How does the US justify its actions abroad even when they result in death and destruction?
- How much did the Union and Confederacy hate each other?
- How does Russia rationalize the annexation of Crimea?
- What sparked the formation of Great Britain? (Hint: Major embarrassment for Scotland)

Who is the writer?
Allison Black, writer and political junkie extraordinaire. I think the one thing I like more than blabbing about international relations might just be video games. Nah, that’s a lie. Video games definitely come second.
I first got into politics back in 2011(ish) when I noticed that North Korea was making a lot of noise in the news, threatening thermonuclear holocaust and all. I thought this was an issue worth learning about. Six years down the road and here I am, writing this blog. Oh, jeez.
My hopes are dreams are to: go back to school for my MA, publish several books, and raise an army of chihuahuas. I think that’s all pretty reasonable.
