but it's (1) not like Hope doesn't have experience on the subject of prejudice (and people dying over it) in her travels
Hope may have experience about prejudice; but she doesn't know what it is to be a mutant in the 20th or 21th century. She cannot, she's only been there for a couple of months, at most. All prejudices aren't equivalent, they take different forms and expressions and are felt in different ways, and it's pretty presumptuous to claim that, for example, because you know what it's like to suffer from sexism, then you also know what it's like to suffer from racism.
she's still raising a good point.
It could be a good point if she had taken the time to learn more about Xavier's ideas before making it. As it is, it's dismissive, naive bullshit.
