Racism Works

In a Darwinian sense, Racism is a winning evolutionary strategy, perhaps. Why else would it be so constant and enduring? Why would something so heinous be so prevalent? Maybe because Racism is the front door to the mansion of Violence, thinking of the refrain: born in sin, come on in.

When we turn to the Holy, we leave our father and mother, meaning we leave behind that with which we were born, and then we embrace the new way, free of the family tree of the past encumbrances of our self-hood.

The Holy denies the culture that glorifies the Self. Racism is one aspect of the glorification of the Self as seen as a racial entity.
