Which is worse

Bigotry based on race/religion/etc or bigotry based on blind partisanship? Having a hard time deciding. The first is focused, the second casts a wider net. I'd say they both make you look equally ignorant. Then again, is there really a difference between negatively reacting to someone's skin color and negatively reacting to someone's profile pic before even reading what's beside it?

  • Both are unacceptable.

    Answer by QandA at 4:48 PM on Jul. 17, 2010

  • Two sides of the same coin. However, someone's politics says a lot about that person, whereas their skin color or religion is less reflective of who they are. Politics reflect your ideals, your priorities, and point of view. Someone's religion is less so, and skin color is no fair predictor of anything.

  • They are equally abhorrent. Every person, group, thing, etc. should be viewed as independent of everything else, on a case by case basis. If one doesn't know something, someone whatever, they should not not form an opinion of it until they educate them self with first hand knowledge.

  • It's not either or, it's both. Ignorance comes wrapped in many packages.
