    I'm guessing that you attended (are attending?) a predominantly black, ghetto school. I've noticed that most unapologetic white bigots (racism and bigotry, despite a high degree of correlation, are separate things, hence my distinction) I've met or spoken to come from such circumstances. Even if you sincerely believe that most people of a particular racial type (for either genetic or cultural reasons) are a waste of time, why hate that entire group of people as a result? Even if life and other people have no objective value, the pleasures of malevolence (especially when generalized rather than focused on specific individuals) tend to be limited and short-lived, and when over-emphasized, tend to end in either general existential frustration ("I hate them and can't do anything major about it, but I can't stop thinking about those annoying fuckers!) or self-destructive acts of rage (ending up in jail, creating conditions under which personal economic prosperity and security are compromised, etc). I don't actually care very much if someone is a bigot of the first type, though I find attempts to embrace and rationally justify such bigotry to be patently absurd.

    Hmm, upon reading more of the previous posts, it seems mendacity pretty much already made my point (though I'm perhaps less judgemental about irrational prejudice that does not directly violate other people's rights-I habitually compartmentalize aspects of people). Ah well...

    Seeing people as tools is very limiting. They are fellow living, feeling, and thinking creatures. That alone gives them insurmountable value. Why? Because they exist and that alone is a miracle unto itself.
    I'll have you know that most people do not think. Why encourage them to think when we can use them to our advantage to make our lives easier?

    The great thing about stupid people is they don't feel pain like intelligent people.

    people resort to bigotry because they have much hatrid inside for themselves, and it is only natural to turn that hate outward. bigots should not be seen as an inherently bad or stupid people, but rather a people that suffered from lack of love and support throughout much of their lives.

    I think the real prejudice in the world is the one Intuitives have against Sensors.
