    After the election, I saw some extremely bigoted

    and racist things said against Tim Scott and Mia Love after they won their elections. Only reason people can't stand them is because they're both black.

    Response To Fundamentalism

    I agree. Fundamentalism is at the very least intellectually dishonest, no matter where it comes from.  Fundamentalism used to make negative opinions would be prejudiced.This is why I'm an Agnostic.

    Ignorance

    Since bigotry is hatred of a person for belonging to a group and for no other reason, it is wrong. Lets not confuse disagreements or problems on a personal level with bigotry. People are allowed to disagree. They are allowed to hate you for waking them up at night with loud...

    Ignorance

    Claiming anything without any evidence to back it up is to do so in ignorance.  Claiming something in ignorance is prejudice.

    Gay Marriage
