If I may interrupt and attempt agreement with both of you, let me explain a necessary approach in my work. Anti-attitudes stop everything nearby. They're real-life quantum singularities spinning in on themselves. Anti-anyone becomes a vicious cycle that has only two endings: Usually the antagonist ends up alienating, no pun intended, and hating everyone, including himself. Or he somehow realizes the error and makes the correction, opening back up to humanity. Correction always, always, always has to be performance-based. It can not stand if it's based on any other attribute. And we can't stand it either. Every ethnicity adds value to humanity, just as every human contact, every association, adds value to each one of us.
