To the editor:

Bigotry defined.

Noun:

Intolerance toward others who hold different opinions from oneself.

A person who has strong unreasonable beliefs and ideas and does not like "other" people who have different beliefs or a different way of life, including race and religion.

Synonyms of bigotry:

Prejudice, bias, partisanship, sectarianism, discrimination, unfairness, injustice, intolerance, narrow-mindedness, racism, sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, anti-Semitism, Jim Crowism.

Americanism: defined as "modern, progressive, alive," it encourages individual thinking of any person, politic or religion. Suppression of individual freedoms or differences in thinking is a form of human control.

I choose Americanism for myself.
