Why are RACISTS so UGLY!??!

The resurrection of Kamil's horrific thread made me wonder how people can be this ugly. Supposedly what separates us from animals is our ability to reason and appreciate life and it's fragility (what other animal is known to contemplate its own mortality -- or morality?), but for the life of me I can't comprehend such blatant ignorance.

So, luckily this hasn't happened to me more than once that I can recall, but there was a woman I found really attractive until I got to know her much better. She was white and surprised me when she started bad-mouthing Latinos. At first I thought it was just joking in bad taste, but it soon became apparent that she really saw them in some sense as less than human. Most surprising, at least to me, was that her mom had remarried an African American! My head almost spun around: here she was in a multiracial household and she was still a racist (and of course hated people who had a racist attitude towards her stepfather). Good grief!!!

That certainly made her ugly in my eyes.

Anyone have any way to help me understand such insanity?

They are so ugly because no matter what you look like on the outside your true soul of hatred will over power that and show how ugly you truly are. Like they say beauty is only skin deep but ugly is through and through.
Ugly soul + ugly actions = ugly person. Sad, but true.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

I think Kamil was fully about shock value. He seemed to really get off on making ignorant, inflammatory statements about pretty much anything and then watching everyone get into a tizzy. He admitted as much on more than one occasion. He was the perfect, textbook definition of an internet forum troll and every time one of us responded to him (and I fell into the trap as well) we rewarded his conduct. He'll undoubtedly spank away madly if he should ever see this thread, knowing we're still talking about him so long after being banned. I don't know that he was a legitimate, card-carrying racist. He was a master baiter.

Racists, on the other hand, are a different breed. And while I find their beliefs to be repugnant, I also can't help but pity them a bit. I'm sure there are some racists out there that have had bad experiences with [insert race of choice] which have turned them on an entire group of people. But I think most racism is taught at home from a very young age by parents, other family members and close family friends. Anyone growing up in such a toxic stew of hatred has a pretty tough task to break free of it. They probably don't even understand why they hate the races they hate. They've just been taught hatred and fear from infancy. It is tough to approach anything you hate or fear with an open mind.

Gawd, I'm glad that grotesque abomination of a thread is finally dead. I'd like to see some of the similarly anti-Semitic threads quietly disappear as well.

I think 420 is much closer than he knows [at least here in the states]. Minorities are becoming a majority. White will be a minority by 2042 and some folks just have a fear and dread of that possibility.

Also, considering over 85% of the world is non white, and technology has shrunk the world to where everyone can get a better perspective of their particular place in it, some might consider that closing in to be threatening and become fearful.

As we enter a worldwide recession, which may become a depression in many parts of the world, it would behoove folks to re-read Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath or understand the migration toward the "promised land" as folks seek food and survival. In the 30s that migration was from the dust bowl to California, the next one can easily be from Somalia or Mexico or Canada or Bangladesh.

Unfortunately it's not only here where racism raises it's ugly head.
Most countries have huge racist problems.

We are afraid to embrace change, and shy away from anyone whose different.

I think Obama becoming president wasn't just a vote of politics but a vote of internal change. Change that we off all races have been fighting for, for thousands of years. Millions have lost their lives for the right of freedom and the ability to execute that freedom in equality.

Spot on, IMHO. Once you understood where he was coming from, it was impossible to take him seriously.
