Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 492 People

    Nothing wrong with an un-educated bigot.

    Those people you can try and reason with. It's the EDUCATED BIGOT who's more dangerous!

    There Is No Point In Arguing

     So many times have I found myself deeply disappointed to discover that someone I like and respect is predigest. Everybody is unique in there own way so to generalize is really quite ridiculous.  But the thing about bigots, is that their minds are so closed there...

    Uneducated Bigots

    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...

    I don't know whether I'm missing a really valid point here, or whether it has been done on puporse. But, saying that 'all bigots will be reincarnated as gay, homeless people of colour is suggesting that being these three things is negative. I can understand what this statement...

    Islamaphobia

    A BNP member has crawled out of the woodwork and replied to my post 'Stop The BNP'. In the usual baseless, vile invective, she equates Islam with rape, murder and torture. I'm not going to go any further in this post (though I will post this in one or two other groups), but I...

    Especially Hypocritical Bigots

    Like religious zealots.  They abhor the gay lifestyle and hate all that take part in it.  Any one who isn't exactly like them are considered "sinful."  Yet doesn't their "bible" teach them to love their neighbors?  To treat others as they...

    Especially when they're prejudiced against the

    spiritual beliefs of others. Having been part of a religious minority for most of my life, dealing with such people can be especially painful.

    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.

    Ignorance and Bigotry

    It seems to me that ignorance and bigotry are related in a "cause and effect" relationship.  Ignorance has nothing to do with education.  I has to do with a closed mind and preconceived notions acquired in many ways -- family, culture, religion, and the media...

    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...

    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 disagree with this subject.

    Reason? Just because you have a degree or a certificate of an MA, does not prove anything. Why? It does not symbolise your intelligence, it just says "someone taught me about so & so subject," on a piece of paper. It's like a job, why is it important to have experience more...
