In the 1986 addition of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, it said that Jameson doesn't share the anti mutant prejudice that was widespread. If this is true, then that's Jameson's most redeeming quality. Is there evidence of this in the comics. Just asking because I haven't read as much Spiderman as many people.

Jameson is, for the most part, a solid, honest journalist and a crusader for civil rights. He just has this one little tic--his irrational hatred of Spider-Man (and a distrust of vigilantes in general).
 
In one of the Spiderman stories, Robbie explained Jameson's distrust of people in masks from his time as an investigative reporter.

He had covered stories on the KKK and from his dealings, outside of the masks some KKK members were "respectable" members of society. Hence, Jameson feels that people who wear mask have something sordid to hide hence his dislike of Spiderman despite his actions.

He's not actually a bigot.

And, at the end of the day, Spider-Man is still a masked vigilante...which is a crime.
 
Even from the beginning, it was established that JJ's hatred of Spider-Man stems from jealousy, of seeing Spider-Man be selflessly heroic while JJ is anything but.

The Spider-man movie novelization had a great piece on that near the end of the book about his "jealousy". That's my favorite part in the entire book.

I wish writers wouldn't portray it as simply "I dont like Spider-man cause I don't" over and over again cause it's far from that.
