“A statement of simple fact is not bigotry.”
Alas, on this point Dawkins is wrong.
Increasingly, lots of statements of fact are bigotry.
IQ varies by race. This is an obvious fact and it’s bigotry (see Jason Richwine). Propensity to commit crime varies by race. Women have different abilities than men. (It may even be bigoted to consider women as independent moral agents). It’s probably best not to notice what percentage of transgenders in the military leak massive amounts of information, and if you do be careful how you do it or you’ll offend the thought and language police. Etc. The world is full of hatefacts.
In this framework, you can only be on one of two sides: the side of liars or the side of bigots. Do you choose to tell the truth or to defend the false gods of our times?
