Bigotry is the lot of retards. A grown man has enough enemies of all stripes to preempt uniform grudges.

“When I was a kid, some of the guys would try to get me to hate white people for what they’ve been doing to Negroes, and for a while I tried real hard. But every time I got to hating them, some white guy would come along and mess the whole thing up.”
—Thelonious Sphere Monk as quoted by Harry Colomby in Down Beat, Vol. 25, 1958
