Racial Hatred Is Confused

22 August 2017 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
Kimball Corson
It is the white supremacy movement, a backhanded black putdown group. It is the NeoNazi movement, an extremist, fasccist version of the white supremacy movement that harkens back to Hitler and the Third Reich. It is a pro confederate movement, that heralds the pre-civil war confederacy with its slavery and the antebellum south. Additionally, as I have written, the real issues for individual members of these groups are not likely the issues they think they are or those relating directly to these groups -- they are most probably economic frustrations or worries in their individual lives they think are unmanageable.

Ostensibly, the core here of these groups is hatred of blacks. However, if pressed, members of these groups likely don't know any blacks personally or, if they do, don't have any objections to those black as individuals. Their hatred is abstract and more ideological or perhaps, as I suggest, not the issue at all. And our president feeds and promotes that hatred, also in a backhanded, abstract manner, with a touch of anti-semitism thrown in for good measure, to reinforce that crowd sentiment as well.

So now the attack of good people and some protesters is on confederate monuments. Many are coming down, by public violence or city council action.

Could a bigger confused mess be easily imagined? A study in mass, messy psychology.

About:
Kimball Corson: I am a 75 year old solo sailor, by choice. However, I did take on a personable, but high maintenance female kitten, now a full grown cat, named KiKiPoo when she is sweet, or KatKatPo after she has just killed something like a bird or bat. [...]
Extra:
Although I was a lawyer and practiced law with good success for thirty years, creating significant new law, I never really believed in the law, the politics of law or in the over reaching self-interest of most lawyers I met. Too much exposure to Nietzsche and other good and seriously thoughtful [...]
