Racism & bigotry are triggered by inferiority complex. Demonise & attack scapegoats to overcome ones own failings. Such twisted cowards are doing that just right now to a minority group. Yes, the one which even our constitution fails to protect. Bravo, you galant men, bravo. https://t.co/f5Zbo2z9SL
