Why are RACISTS so UGLY!??!
The resurrection of Kamil's horrific thread made me wonder how people can be this ugly. Supposedly what separates us from animals is our ability to reason and appreciate life and it's fragility (what other animal is known to contemplate its own mortality -- or morality?), but for the life of me I can't comprehend such blatant ignorance.
So, luckily this hasn't happened to me more than once that I can recall, but there was a woman I found really attractive until I got to know her much better. She was white and surprised me when she started bad-mouthing Latinos. At first I thought it was just joking in bad taste, but it soon became apparent that she really saw them in some sense as less than human. Most surprising, at least to me, was that her mom had remarried an African American! My head almost spun around: here she was in a multiracial household and she was still a racist (and of course hated people who had a racist attitude towards her stepfather). Good grief!!!
That certainly made her ugly in my eyes.
Anyone have any way to help me understand such insanity?
