Well, you may have a point there. I'm not going to be dogmatic. I've not had any personal interactions with Gypsies. If what I've heard is true, then that would be a tragic instance of a subculture being self-defeating. But the Jews? (And, no, I'm not Jewish.) I think there have been many more instances of social classes or minority groups who were unjustly treated and oppressed for no good reason at all. Regardless, I don't believe in hating people. I know what it's like to be on the receiving end.
As for prejudice? I do understand it. I've even had a prejudice of my own, but I've learned to view people as individuals because sometimes individuals defy stereotypes to an amazing extent. And sometimes someone who belongs to a group against whom you may be prejudiced could turn out to be a good friend.
By the way, thanks for not insulting me immediately or attacking me personally without provocation simply because we might disagree about something, which is the wont of a few of the most prolific members here. Oh, what am I saying? It's par for the course, wherever
you go on the Internet. *sigh*
