    I hate knowing that so many of my students will grow up and be discriminated against because of the color of their skin. They will be pulled over, harassed, denied service. I try to explain to them that there are still stupid people out there, but that not everyone is racist...

    I hate bigotry so much

    that a difference in opinion about women's or lgbt rights or something that sounds racist to me could end a friend ship. Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing or if by not tolerating their opinion, I'm the one who's the real bigot.
