Yeah but what if when pureblood parents get annoyed with their ungrateful children they send them to muggle school for a month and after the first day they desperately plead with their parents like:
"Dad I can’t go back there they make me run”
"Please I know nothing about muggle history”
"There are letters in the math, Dad, PLEASE"
And the parents just smugly look down at their sobbing children like, “You just wait ‘til you have to use a computer”
I’m always like, “I WANT A RELATIONSHIP!”
But then I realize I have no idea what I would do if I actually got one.
What do I do after I get it? Like, do I need to take the person for walks? What do I feed them? I can’t cook that well. I had to look up a diagram to learn how to cut a pepper properly.
But now I can cut peppers really well.
So there’s that.
I’ve been in a relationship for a year and this feeling doesn’t go away
And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isn’t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - it’s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagrid’s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.
Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they don’t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And that’s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldn’t be “only evil people do it”, because then all readers will assume it doesn’t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us “you too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAP”."
