Brain Bigotry – Common Questions

Bigotry? What does that have to do with beliefs and bullying behaviors?

Bigotry can be defined as an obstinate devotion to one’s own beliefs, and a stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, opinion, race, culture, gender, that differs from one’s own.
Bigotry can involve targets and categories that are similar to those of bullying, and anything else about which an individual has very strong emotions and feelings Examples may include: Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in the USA (a secret hate group founded in 1915, directed against Jews, Catholics, Blacks, Muslims, almost any foreign-born individuals, and some other groups).

What else can bigotry involve? (more to come)
