Due to the popular flow of the racial current being washed over the airwaves right now, I find myself hoping that people know there is a difference between a bigot, a narrow minded person with intolerant views of others, and a racist, an individual who believes themselves to be superior to another person based on their race.
For example, I am a bigot. I am very intolerant of racists and I think they are the scum of the earth and should not be allowed to reproduce. We don’t need more racists, we need none.
That makes me a bigot. Any objections?
Ergo, a racist is a bigot, but a bigot is not necessarily a racist.
End of message.
