“Let’s lay it right on the line. Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today. But, unlike a team of costumed super-villains, they can’t be halted with a punch in the snoot, or a zap from a ray gun. The only way to destroy them is to expose them — to reveal them for the insidious evils they really are. The bigot is an unreasoning hater — one who hates blindly, fanatically, indiscriminately.” —Stan Lee, 1968
@Lexi I found this implausible because of the use of the word "snoot" and then I looked it up. It really is a thing and it's a heckin' powerful statement.

@Lexi This is true. When I hate people, I'm very deliberate and reasoned about it.
