Damn, I really wanted to read it all...but starteed getting really scared and could not finish. It really terrifies me how people can think like that and just sort of blend in.

"Stupid press," I add. "You should be careful of them."

I secretly hope that everyone at those meetings is actually undercover cops, FBI agents, and reporters... all of them pretending to be racists to catch the fictitious real racists.

It would be funny... but clearly it isn't true.

As they say... stupid should be painful.

Yes, I totally agree with your last statement.

I wonder about such things. I'd like to understand the process by which this sort of hatred develops - what does it feel like, and how does one justify it to oneself? My current working theory is that it's very similar to the process of developing a grudge against someone, except that it involves identification with group membership (e.g. an angry thought of "he did X to me" is replaced with an angry thought of "they did X to us").
