I am thoroughly depressed
Today has been a very depressing day. I’ve seen an ugly, petty side of people that I’d rather not have known about.
How can we ever expect to wipe racial or religious prejudice from this country, when people are still quite happy to wallow in class prejudice? Prejudice is prejudice. There is no acceptable form of it. It’s not acceptable to despise black people. It’s not acceptable to despise Muslims. And it isn’t acceptable to despise people for being posh, either. It’s all prejudice. You can’t pick and choose.
Still, humanity’s always been good at rampant hypocrisy, hasn’t it?
