Prejudice and Prejudiced :

People not only misspell “prejudice" in a number of ways, they sometimes say “he’s prejudice" when they mean “he’s prejudiced."

A person who is influenced by a bias is biased. The expression is not “they’re bias," but “they’re biased." Also, many people say someone is “biased toward" something or someone when they mean biased against. To have a bias toward something is to be biased in its favor.
