      ...apparent bigotry can be a sign or symptom of dementia.  

      Sadly, not all bigots are demented, simply uninformed and lacking in an understanding of basic human civility.

      And in the case of Donald Sterling (whom I assume you're referencing), no one is really suggesting his bigotry is part of dementia, more that his openly verbal use of bigoted statements, is a result of his alleged dementia. Sterling's been a known bigot for a long time, and has been in trouble for it before.
