Are you a bigot?

 

Check yourself out versus the following definition you too can google.

“a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions”.  

Sooooooooooo, you may be INTOLERANT and thus a BIGOT if:

  1. You prefer to argue (win-lose) versus discuss (win-win) to be open to other perspectives and ideas.
  2. You only watch CNN or Fox or MSNBC news instead of looking at all of them for balanced news.
  3. You get angry or violent or intimidating when someone expresses a different viewpoint.
  4. You are a weak critical and rational logical thinker.
  5. You are partial to groupthink “following the crowd, “not rocking the boat” and “going along to get along”.
  6. You may not have educated yourself about ALL the relevant facts. “The highest result of education is tolerance.” … Helen Keller.

“Tolerance is important, especially in a democracy. The ability to have honest conversations, even if you come from a different place, a difference perspective, is fundamentally important.” … Theo Epstein
