I agree with this, but I separate bigotry from racism. I believe there is no wisdom, prudence or benefit attached to racism. I believe that no race is superior to another in regard to human dignity and the value of lives…and I certainly find no benefit in exclaiming that any other race (or ethnicity) is inferior to mine.
The people are no less human than I. They just come from different cultures, with different histories and exposure to different environments throughout their histories.
Spear chunking tribes that still exist in rain forests have not been exposed to and still have no need of such things as crowded cities, telephones, highways, taxation to support big governments…blah, blah, blah. They live a simple life and likely have IQs that will never match those in developed nations, but they are still not inferior humans.
Bigotry, on the other hand is sometimes commendable. Had the Allies not been bigoted against the ideology of Hitler, there would not have been a victory.
Again, this is just an opinion. That’s what this thread is about…opinions.
Basically, IMHO racism is never sensible…bigotry can be, depending on the source of the intolerance.
