    I've never met a racist who wasn't also a sexist.  That's part of why I can't let it go.  

    Of course, there's also the fact that considering someone inferior because of skin color defies logic.  And it hurts good, innocent people and there's no reason to make good, innocent people suffer.  So, you know, there's that.  :)

    But even on a purely selfish level, anyone spouting racist bullshit immediately sets off all sorts of alarms in my mind, because I'm a woman.  I know I can be targeted just as easily.

    I don't get how people can tolerate anyone spouting hate or mocking someone for their race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.  Someone who does that is someone who goes on the attack for no reason.  Why doesn't it freak everyone out?
