The Slice

The myth of the family bigot

We've all heard the one about every extended family including someone who occasionally spouts bigoted or socially insensitive remarks, embarrassing everyone within earshot.

Sure. That may or may not be the case.

But the notion that every family includes people who find such remarks embarrassing is seriously at odds with reality.
