To What Extent Does "selective Outrage" Reveal About Something About Bigotry?

Almost no one would ever come out and admit that they are a bigot [although I am pretty sure I have a bias against Arabs . . . . and the Dutch] But it seems like if you express outrage exclusively about the behavior about one group of people, regardless of the legitimacy of that outrage, you might be a bigot.

I rarely call folks out on this, but I see i a lot on this board.

Is that a fair assessment?

If there was an arrest there would have been no outrage... Everytime I see a counter to the trayvon Martin situation the other person/persons were arrested.... If you are going to compare apples to apples show me a case where a black guy shoots someone and he admits it was in self defense and no arrest was made...

I assume you would be hard pressed to find that though.

I have to agree. When you only protest one side of something, it shows that you are clearly a bigot who refuses to be objective regarding certain things/people. Why, I know of one bigot who is so hateful of liberals that he actually posted a thread entitled "Obama Now Using Algorisms.. Google And Facebook Exist Because Of Govt. Narcism. " I mean, what the ****?! If President Obama walked across the water to pull his *** out of a burning boat, he would post a "Obama Can't Even Swim" thread the next day.

You're right. Bigotry sucks.

Honestly the only people I can't stand are people that think they 100% know about something... I guess it stems from religion and politics discussions....

I prefer when people keep those opinions to themselves or at least treat people with other opinions not as "wrong" but just with a different opinion... there are far too few reasonable discussions in this world about the most important subjects... seem to be the loudest people win.
