White doctors in the US used to say that black people can't feel pain. 

A US general in Vietnam said that "oriental" people don't value life the way "we" do.

On this thread we hear that billions of Muslim people are forbidden from experiencing pleasure. 

You'd think that eventually people would get over this kind of dehumanizing prejudice, but I guess not.

Believe it or not; there are members -and mods- here that said "seriously" that the whole Middle East should be nuked.
I wonder what's the difference between them and between ISIS. I wonder where the rules were when they said that.

I bet they were a Sam Harris fan.

I would also argue that a person who commits evil actions is not the same thing a a person who has an inherently evil nature.
