This clip from Catherine Tate's outstanding sketch show starts out seriously enough, but once it's obvious the bigotry being faced is gingerphobia, why, the hilarity just ensues all over the place!
All of which is intended - in the tradition of the best satire - to demonstrate how stupid bigotry is... I've said it before and I'll say it again: there are ample reasons to despise individuals without having to take things out on entire groups, if that's the way you choose to 'live'. Fortunately, the way things are going, the number of minority groups worth despising - while increasing in number - are doing so with smaller and smaller numbers of members, until such time as all of those people who make use of identity politics to determine the value of others will just disappear, and those of us who remain can all get back to being humans together again.
