“We are outraged by his statements and I hope that it will also help those who make decisions in our country, and also citizens, reflect on their daily actions, identify classist or discriminatory biases and be able to correct them. Nobody is infallible. Recognizing mistakes makes us great and it is important to modify behaviors like this, which only damage the dignity of the people with whom we should build a healthy coexistence, who understand and respect our differences without belittling others for thinking or acting differently, for having other
