Also - you speak of making sweeping generalisations then assume that I'm happy to make jokes about Irish people...I never said that...you assumed that, you wonderful liberal, you.
I said I've heard numerous Irish jokes...I'm half Irish, half Scottish.
And the violent Irish man you speak of from the simposns is who..Willie the Janitor?
He's supposed to be a Scot.
So you lump Irish and Scots into the same category? Isn't tha tsweeping generalisation?
Isn't conflating one race with another based on a few similar trais bigoted and sort of racist?
That's hilarious...no, you made assumptions and generalisations and AGAIN failed to fully read and understand my points.
I said I've been told nuuuumerous Irish and Scottish jokes, not that I told them or found them funny...they're essentialy poking fun at my own people.
I just ain't crying over it...because the same stupidity has been applied to every race, creed, colour tint or hue that has ever walked this planet.
What are we, a race of crybabies?

Bigotry is defined as the extreme intolerance of any creed, belief or opinion, which differs from one's own. This includes Trump supporters, as well as, supporters of politicians on the left & groups like Islam, BLM, KKK, etc., according to the definition. I believe the main difference lies in the amount of hatred & violence perpetrated by a particular group towards another group. Imo, there is far more hatred & violence perpetrated by the left towards the right vs hatred & violence on the right perpetrated towards the left.

I can see how that makes you prejudiced but racism is not a point system. You do not get to earn the right to be racist.
