Is it bigoted to hate bigots different amounts based upon their bigotry? If there was:
1. a person who is racist
2. a person who hates disabled people
3. a person who is sexist
would you hate all 3 equally?
If not are you a bigot?

My favorite quote- I'm neither racist, sexist, or a bigot. I treat everyone equally until they give me reason not to.
Its simple, see people for WHO they are. Not WHAT they are. Do this and you will find that there are decent people in every ethnic, religious, and social group.

I am not a bigot, rather I am a hatemonger.

Racist and sexist are both conned terms created by TPTB.

ie: Someone could be called a racist because he says he does not like black gang warfare or does not like rap music because it idolizes crime. In reality, the man saying this could be black himself, or is white and had a son killed by gang warfare.

ie: Someone could say it is wrong to give disabled people the term "special", but in reality the person saying this could have Down's Syndrome and is just wanting to be treated normally.

You see, most terms ending in "ist" are just made up for "politicall corectness" by politicians looking to gain more power.

It does not make you a bigot to dislike certain qualities that other races tend to have, or for not getting a closer parking spot.

Hope I helped

Just words and labels. I think getting to know the person is more important. Also, people act different around different people. Thats why I try and get to know people over every possible facit of hobbies, interests and debauchery. People do eventually catagorise themselves as you become closer to those people. Youll know a sexist, racist or bigot when you meet the actual person behind their social mask. Get to know the person, youll see who they actually are.

Do you hate some bigots more than others?

I hate bigots who try to have their bigotry outspoken in order to hurt others.
These people, I don't mind hating/hurting them because it is what they are in search for.
When you speak out hate, you are demanding the same in return from said groups( gays, ethnics, and so on).

As I am doing right now actually, I long for your hatred, haters, it is something we feed on, like fuel for our minds.

No discrimination should go un punished, I don't care if your white, black yellow or brown
Christian, muslim or bouhdist
Gay straight or anything else for that matter.

Treat me with respect and I will give you everything
Treat me like crap and you will go down on the floor with a bloody lip.

Respect breeds respect
Hatred breeds hatred, what do you wish to put out in this world?

Ponder on that for a minute...

I would think they were entitled to their own damn opinion,
and mind my own business.

You shouldn't judge people by their appearance, but on their actions, or lack of action.

"Evil is allowed to persist only when good men sit back and do nothing".

If you want to see a really good explanation of why racism is even more ridiculous than what we perceive, read up on what David Icke has to say on the subject. His basic philosophy? We're all the same item inside, the same product, we're basing hatred on the color of the container or packaging. In other words, people that are racist are basically saying "I'm going to hate your iPad because it's black, but I love my white one".

Actually the title is there only to grab attention. If you read it you will find it is about whether you view different bigots the same:
1. a racist
2. a sexist
3 a person who hates disabled people

Do you hate any more than the others?

Not really. It is just a question. Is it that people do not want to answer the question, because if they told the truth they would have to admit to themselves that they are a bigot.

u cant admit but one thing in a move of mean, bc truth is freedom while freedom cant be but one all even if true

so hating smeone for what he hates particularly is impossible, u must sumarize it in hating him for what he is as it would get back to u for caring for
that what also would prove lies ways, who is saying to u that he hates sexists is a liar for sure or whatever else, unless it hits him somewhere directly so having also a relation with him personnally

It is not bigotry to sanction bigots -- bigots choose to be in their group. That groups paints broad groups of people based on natural characteristics. No one chooses their ethnicity, their disabilities. People choose to be bigots, willfully ignorant or just plain jerks, I have absolutely no time for them and I wish the ill -- but I am not a bigot.

It is your right to wear a funny hat -- it is my right to point and laugh and ridicule.

The only thing I hate is how the handicapped people get all of the damn parking spaces.

You literally have to walk a mile, right past 20 open handicapped parking spaces.

There is something wrong with this


If handicapped people want to be treated equally, then they should cover the same amount of distance as me to get to the front friggin door.

This really pi$$es me off.......

Is a geni handicapped as they have no legs: they were supposed to be made be Allah from smokeless fire. This sounds like they cannot pick anything up. I conclude they must be treated as quadruple amputees.

While we most often associate it with race, bigotry comes in a hundred different forms... with the above three you listed being just the tip of the iceberg. The bottom line is that we do often stereotype, or judge others based on the flimsiest reasoning...

Are you from a specific country or region of a country that is often stereotyped? Then chances are you are judged from those of other nations and regions whom you don't know and never will.

Do you follow a specific faith or religion? You can (and often will be) be cast into a single group and insulted by people who are complete strangers.

And it gets even thinner as we go. This kind of bigotry can extend into things like sports teams... where fans of a rival team often go as far as to physically assault those of another.

Oh... and if you are poor, or even just a little less than well-off, chances are that you fall under someone's prejudice for your economic situation as well.

Racial bigotry is only one corner of the human condition. Unfortunately, we only tend to focus on those things like racism and sexism... etc. rather than the whole. But then again, if we did, we'd no longer be able to happily cast stones as our own glass houses would quickly shatter, lol.

S&F 4U!
