The one bit that I thought was particularly interesting was the comparison between bigotry in America and Britain:
"In America, the bigotry you face is real, unvarnished and in the open. In Britain, it can come masked or euphemised or deflected into humour. It hurts much more to punch a brick wall than to punch a deep velvet cushion. But if you punch hard enough, the wall will one day crumble, while the pillow will constantly absorb the blows."
It rings true and yet I could make the argument that in some respects the reverse is the case. Isn't America the birthplace of political correctness, after all?
