    We all have our demons. Some of them multi-generational. It doesn't render our intellect incapable of making rational decisions. When those demons are 2,000 years of persecution, as with the Jews, or 400 years, as in the case of African Americans, and those demons are used by those with a different point of view to dismiss our decision making abilities, it is bigotry. Clear as day.
