When I first read your title I admit that I immediately began thinking that you were wrong. But I read the thread and put in a bit of effort looking
for videos of speeches by self-proclaimed racists, and I must say that I agree with you. Watching some of these people speak it is fairly obvious when
you hear them discuss why they do not like certain races that it is not the race of these people at all. It is so obvious that I cannot believe I
never thought of this idea before. Their words have a common, underlying thread that does seem to go beyond race, as you hypothesized.
In fact, if one ponders the issue, it seems difficult that someone could even produce a speech on why they do not like certain races without many of
the real issues coming to light. Getting to the bottom of the issue with a particular subject by presenting various hypothetical instances to them
seems like a great idea in my opinion, mainly because it forces them to think about their own beliefs. I would estimate that the majority of people
like this do think they are racist, when the truth is that they are just projecting their dislikes onto a certain race. This was a very interesting
read, and I thank you for it.
