I don't know what strange hairball this cat has swallowed, but ... "I believe that it is not bigotry. The old man belonging to an old school is just expressing his opinion"?

It's like saying the Ku Klux Klan are not racist. They are just a product of their own time and society, and just can't help themselves when they see black skin and ask for blood.

Bigots are bigots. Of course, some can't help themselves because they belong to an older generation steeped in unspoken prejudice -- but that doesn't excuse them from still being bigots.



Cats, of all creatures, should know better.

And it doesn't help that today's Inquirer editorial, taking note of the deluge of wrath Isagani Cruz's column had sparked, is less than stellar. It's a fart of an opinion, and does not really give us anything.
