Bigotry, alas, is ugly but it’s no disease. It is simply just one of many expressions of the negative offset to the tribal impulse for like kinds to band together for the common good. Of course for those possessing any speck of intellect they usually manage to rise above such primitive hardwiring of the mind.

Otherwise the stupid will make a virtue out of evil, turning goodness and logic on their heads.
