10. #5 talked about oppressors as cited in sermons in black churches. It's obvious the reference is to
the white community.

One definition of bigot is ": a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance"

IMO any person of one race who condemns another race is a "bigot".

In that sense I as a "white" was attacked by a bigot if his/her sermon attacked my race.
