    intended for minorities--who, for a variety of reasons, are especially vulnerable to the effects of discrimination.  Everyone experiences discrimination in some form or another, even best-selling white atheist celebrities, but most of us can easily bounce back from the injustices we encounter.  It seems to me that Dawkins is suffering considerably less harm in being denied these particular public accommodations (for the purposes of plugging his newest book!) than, say, a busload of disabled persons turned away from a remote motel at 2 a.m. in the rain.  Or a minority suffering career setback because of limited opportunities to socially network.

    Dawkins has no patience for the grievances of others, yet he screams bloody murder at what, for him, amounts to a mere inconvenience.  If you or I complained as prodigiously as this guy, we'd lose all credibility as people.
