My dear Elieen............as the pictured underpriviledged couple walk toward you on a darkened street........you're alone,BTW......do you cross to the other side??? Duck into a store front until they pass??? Why????
Or do you stop and commiserate with them over their underpriviledged status, flashing a wad of cash (of which you offer them just a little)???
The disconnect is fascinating. Your statistics disproved your point.........and frankly, so do your day-to-day activities. Otherwise, you'd be dead by now. Likely killed by someone whom common sense would have told you might be.......unsavory.
The fact is, you live your ordinary day-to-say life as if you were in absolute agreement with everything Greg wrote and implied. So do we all, and for good reason. It's true
But you write the opposite with a sense of indignant outrage in direct opposition to how you yourself live.

Good idea Sue, I'll do that!

After reading your thought provoking post I pondered it deeply and came to the happy conclusion that I'm not prejudiced.
I love wealthy, educated, female homosexuals!
Trouble is, they just ain't too fond of me.

I did err. I was wrong to think your assumptions about my life were mistaken. You would have had to consciously consider me a person first, and living a life next, and you've made it very clear that such considerations are well outside your train of thought.

Let me ask you one final question, and I will cease trying to reach you here.
Have you ever encountered someone of a different race and had a prejudicial thought pop into your head???
One you found abhorrent.......one you consciously resisited as any good person would??
Now, assuming that you are not exempt from the occasional distasteful thought........which may be too much to assume in light of your previous replies.......Where did such thoughts spring from???
Were they injected into your mind from without, or did they arise from within??
How then do such thoughts arise from a heart as pure as your own??
Or do you further deny that such distasteful and aberrant thoughts ever cross your mind???
If you admit that ( like the rest of the human race) these thoughts do indeed cross your mind, and they do not originate from without........then you admit that they originate from within your own heart. How then do such thoughts proceed from a heart where no such prejudice exists??
