What do you call it when you judge an entire class of people without knowing or understanding them? It’s called prejudice. What do you call it when you believe yourself morally and intellectually superior because they have a belief system different than your own? That’s bigotry. Political bigotry exists, and it is very deadly. We’ve already had a Civil War over it. This war was a product of Democrats versus Republicans. Back then, though, the Democrats were the slave owners, and the Republicans favored the abolition of slavery.
