I don't disagree at all with what he was trying to do. Intellectually, I even understand why he chose to do it the way he did. I just don't like it, and I'm trying to illustrate why. Nothing about this is related to his cause, which I freely admit is an absolutely just one, just the method he used to garner attention. I am far more offended by the snide, casual accusations of bigotry for anyone who feels the same.
