52. Because at this point
Edited on Sun Jan-24-10 05:04 PM by hippywife
they are the least empathetic and most controlling, the most xenophobic and bigoted. The most likely to be intolerant and spew the hate that incites violence. That is why they scare me.

Tell me why the Muslims riot in France? They are slowly being stripped of their cultures by laws being passed about how they are permitted to dress or comport themselves. They didn't come into France demanding that the French change their ways of life to suit them.

If one is able to empathize, one is also able to sympathize. Or should be able to. If they cannot, it's only a matter of where a bigot draws their line. You know...well, I think it's fine if they do this, as long as they don't do that. Such as in intermarry, but not have children. Or it's okay if they go to school, but not with my child. Many people think they are open-minded but make statements like that.

Now, thank you for the conversation but I have dinner to prepare.
