BIGOTRY, BIGOTRY, BIGOTRY. I cannot think of any human trait that is more destructive to human relationships and also to the ability of people to succeed in every aspect of their lives than bigotry. It is the concept built on a total lack of understanding and rational concepts. I’m not sure if we’re ever able to rid ourselves of the terrible result of this pernicious concept except through legislation that forces people to do what any rational person would do regardless of the circumstances. The recent decision by the United States Supreme Court which in effect destroyed the voting rights legislation regardless of how constitutionally sound it may have been has released many states, especially Texas, to once again make bigotry one of its fundamental beliefs.
