My guess would be bigot.

I think the thought process would have to be "He's brown, so he must be Muslim. If he's Muslim, he must be violent. Ipso facto: brown is violent" to be racist.


For some reason I read that as "brown is violet" and it made no sense what-so-ever.

/insert random quote of FE calling someone a liberal

These arguments always go the same way-a couple of people flame FE and FE chooses to respond to them instead of the actual replies to his point. That's why nobody chooses to join these discussions any more, it just turns into "everyone's mean here" and a complete avoidance of intellectual conversation.

Seriously, some of you guys are the reason this forum stinks now... You can't have a decent conversation without insulting anyone that MIGHT have a different viewpoint than you. You don't wait and see what the other persons viewpoint is... you just go on the attack right away insulting the other person and "inventing" their viewpoint as it MUST be in your mind... or something. 

It is quite sad, and a good example of what is wrong with out culture today. Everyone wants to label everyone else and put them into a "group" instead of realizing our life experiences make us who we are, and our experiences in life shape our viewpoints. No respect to hear what others think, just make some generalizations and go on the attack.

All you really want is groupthink. 


I saw a current event, that I thought might be interesting to see how it played out in the national narrative, and instead of talking about that, some of you went right to the attack card...

Don't wonder why the forum is stale, some of you have killed it with your intolerance and hate.

I still think someone should have shot him.

And yeah, I know I avoid these hate speech topics. Having lived in the ME I quite enjoy some of the Islamic aspects of life. I also happen to think there are plenty of rotten appels of white, black, brown, pink, green, yellow and rainbow hue'd people to know a certain skin colour does not make someone bad.
