Alwan’s definition of a bigot, as a “global” label encompassing their humanity, as someone who is wholly unpersuadable, wholly without conflict, and wholly without doubt, is not a description of humans, it is a description of myth. And it a definition to which those who live under the power of actual bigots enjoy no access.
Wes Alwan’s understanding of the word “bigot,” is ignorant of the word’s origins, history and its current usage, especially its usage by those most affected by bigotry. This ignorance is a luxury afforded him by identity. People who live in the thrall of actual racists, and actual homophobes, can’t employ Alwan’s definition because it would not accurately describe anyone they have ever met."
