Fear and Loathing

Yes, Hunter knew about that. And the God you speak of knows it best.

M) Why are you afraid of women?

J) I'm not afraid of Women.

M) Methinks you are.

G) He is afraid of women, gays and lesbians too. He just doesn't realize that.

M) And Muslims? People of color?

G) Same deal, it's bigotry.

J) Now there is a word I'm afraid of.

M) And well you should be, it's ugly like the "N" word or the "C" word. Are you afraid of that word for the same reasons you fear women or others?

J) I'm not afraid, they should be the ones who are afraid. My people are in charge. (For now anyway)

G) You are afraid. Bigotry is based in fear and ignorance. And you are clearly ignorant. You like to think of yourself as an intellectual because you possess some very basic intelligence. But in fact you are a dilettante. Lots of books, CD's but no credentials. You are afraid of these people because they are different and you feel threatened. And the thing you hate most is when they are educated, successful and possess the jobs and credentials you so desire.

J) I'm not stupid.

M) No you are not but you are uneducated. There is a big difference between ignorance and stupidity.

J) Thanks for the vote of confidence!
