Oddly enough that's something of it's own kind of prejudice is it not?
Personally I think the fact that people have become so certain that he's truly antisemetic says more about them than it does about Galliano. Let's not lose sight of the fact that not a single one of us knows for sure what goes on in his head.
We are responsible for what comes out of our mouths. I agree that I don't know what's going on in his head, but I'm also sure that what he said didn't come out of nowhere. And what, anyway, is 'truly anti-Semitic'? We can never know for sure what anyone is thinking, and in a sense it doesn't matter--all we have to go on is what they do and say. Which is exactly what's happening in this case.
Luxury is living a simple, elegant, and responsible life. Luxury is a reduction.
