    That I Do

    I have seen bigots in all forms. But there are general categories they all fall under. There are the stuck up bigots, the holy bigots, the logical illogicals, the hating bigots, the misunderstanding bigots, and the unintentional bigots. Yes, there are many other sorts, but these...

    I Do Not Dislike

    I do not dislike uneducated people, but I rarely feel comfortable with them. They speak about things I am not interested in, their opinions are not based so that they could be discussed and so on. Higher education really changes people deeply.

    A Lack of Education Has Nothing to Do With It

    In my experience, bigotry has little to do with someone's lack of education. I've met tons of people in my life who have very little education and are not bigoted at all. Of course, my assumption would be their parents were also not bigoted. I've noticed that most bigots are...

    The way I look at it,if you were raised by bigots you accept their belief system. You may not be blessed with a good education,because you may not live where good schools are available,or your family may not be able to afford to send you to school. Instead of disliking...
