    However, letting your child wear a costume that's been in the family for generations is not bigotry alone. If she went out with him trick-or-treating while shouting "kill all niggers" or "God is white", that'd definitely be bigotry.

    I believe that bigotry is active. I don't believe that bigotry is passive. Do you believe anyone who burns the American flag should go to jail? We're on the same premise here if you do.

    Maybe you don't like what the KKK stands for, I certainly don't like what the KKK stands for.

    Who gives a **** what we "like"?
    Dear god. For about the 4th ****ing time. I'm not saying that she should have her 1st amendment rights taken away I'm just calling her a ignorant ****er who is a bigot. I'm using my 1st amdendment rights too, to call her out on her ****ing ignorance.

    Then we won't agree, as I dislike your definition of the word. It's leagues beyond all-encompassing, and bordering into thoughtcrime.

    I think it's kind of funny. I remember when some Christians complained about kids dressing up as witches and satan.
    what I find interesting is that there is no mention of anyone threatening to beat up the black kid or talking about how his parents should have known better.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Based on what?

    Her comment that blacks should be with blacks, whites should be with whites, and men should be with women?

    That's not bigotry and it's certainly not ignorance.

    I agree with you that it's...something?

    Small mindedness maybe, provincialism, we could probably agree on a number of things that it is.

    But on the evidence it's not bigotry.

    Unless you make up your own meaning for words.

    If you do that, then sure, I suppose any word could mean anything you want it to mean.

    But if we're using the real definition of the word it's not bigotry.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Now, where is the debate in that. Dosent sound very open minded about what others may think.
    You come on a debate forum and post pre-concieved notions that I doubt I could make a dent in to. Sounds like trolling. Just sayin'.

    I'd support putting it towards a savings account for the kid.

    Sorry, you don't get to make your thoughts into a damaging decision for others.

    And? You can't really do anything about it. Stupidity abounds and none of us are allowed to set the definition.
