Drive By Blogger uses a YRHT post to launch into his "in the land of the blind nolabloggers, I'm King Cyclops" schtick. (At least D-BB is funnier than his spiritual predecessor, Dangle. I'll give him that.) But D-BB does touch on an interesting issue that has been a burr in my saddle ever since Steve Bates made a similar point at YRHT several years ago. Here's the crux of it:
Is pre-judging someone based on where they live just as bad as racism or sexism?-- Or is provincialism and regionalism somehow not as immoral as other prejudices? For example, is it ever acceptable to rail on, say, Houstonians as a group? Why is it any better than railing on other groups -- religious, ethnic or otherwise?
