Prejudice When

Today when I was driving back from dropping my mom off and hearing Samia playing with her guitar and Gamila laughing...I started to think when do kids start to develop prejudice. I see las nenas and I know they don't know the differences between: black, white, Hispanics, arabs, muslim, christian, jewish...to them they all are the same. But is sad to say at a certain point they would develop they own prejudice, but my question is can I control this is there something that us as parents can avoid doing. Inshallah I can figure this one out before that time comes .
