Sorry for having lashed out at you like I did, but I can really get mad when someone says that someone has one or two nasty experiences with someone of a certain religion or nationality and then says that that's the reason why he doesn't like people of that certain religion or nationality.
Every once in a while, I come across one or two nasty Poles, or Dutch, or Germans, or French or catholics, or protestants, or Jews, or women, or shopkeepers or whatever; now according to you it would mean that I should hate all Poles, and Dutch and Germans and French and catholics and protestants and Jews and women and shopkeepers. But isn't that a bit short-sighted?
I hate those individuals that were nasty to me, not the group to which they belong.
So ... sorry again. And I am Dutch by the way ... ;)
