The definition of bigot is a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from their own.

The keyword is intolerant but I couldn't care less about being tolerated. I demand respect on the same level as anyone else and the white privilege comments are not respectful of this opinion...not matter how the light is cast.

>its like, if you're white here, and have any kind of social
>opinions that aren't spineless, you're a bigot.

But what does color matter on a discussion board? What do we really represent online? You or I can say we're anything but it really is artificial. I am intrigued by the idea of race online. My experiences as a Black woman are real time, everyday kinds of experiences but who I am online is based upon how I want others to view me. This goes for everyone. How am I supposed to know who is real or authentic on a discussion board? Does it even matter?
