Are racists sexual perverts?

  1. Dec 28, 2003 #1
    Just as the homophobe is stimulated by gay bashing and the otherwise impotent rapist attacks his victim's feminism, racists react overtly from a revulsion. Inculcated by systematic incest and family violence, they scapegoat cultural differences as perceived ethnic threats. The grooming of a bigot in childhood is analogous to a child molester preying on the young. Such a cycle passes through generations of anger and shame projected outward.

    No racist has a satisfying sex life; his fantasies are so preoccupied with hate and genetic "purity" as to further sublimate his self-detestation and pervert his own sexuality. The trolling of an Internet racist is as much a pornographic come-on to closet degenerates as a need for ideologistic affirmation. Sex becomes a zenophobic prison of inbreeding partners.

    The bigot encroaches like a parasite choking off its host plant. The bigot, however is not the plant mistaken as a weed, he is the smut which poisens the crop of humanity. If unchecked, his form of terrorism here on the Web will destroy this interchange and him with it.

    Ummmm...ok? Sure, we know racists are screwed up, and their racism is usually a symptom of larger mental issues. So, I guess that sexual hangups could also easliy be a part of it....*shrugs* Racists can't do nothin right!

    Time not well spent

    to look down at the corpse that was once I
    and hear said
    who went there did waste his time
    time not well spent
    and did die a loners death
    without knowing love and being loved
    and filled with emptiness of cups unfilled
    and watch the feast of preceived lesser men
    who
    knew what life did mean and did spend
    their days in knowing friends and love
    and time without end...

    Another case of generalizations gone wrong.. how about wrongfull stereotyping?

    There are homophobes and homophòbes, as well as there are racists and ràcists.

    You figure that one out :)

    hint: Not all homophobes or racists are extremists (the ones with the accent are).

    I am a bit skeptical of generalisations, however...

    If I recall correctly, of the thousands of racially motivated lynchings in the US, not a single one occurred without either a sexual assault on the victim, or mutilation of the victims genitals.

    Good, since the conclusion that should be made is: racist people who lynch also make sexual assaults, not racists make sexual assaults.

    Weren't many lynchings in the US South motivated by jealousy over the (accented?) "rape" (consenting relationship) of a white woman with a black man?

    You are fortunate not to have grown up with those in the US who still promote the "peculiar institution" of slavery. Doesn't history tell us that the Nazis fornicated in Aryan graveyards to receive the spirit of their ancesters, and aren't Hitler's sexual deviations legend?

    My point is more that the origin of racism is distorted sexuality and violence in the family, and that racism is a particular expression of frustration arising from that. Subtle racism tolerated eventually evolves into actual racism.

    Who says the US holds such a special position? Didn't history teach you that the Dutch sailed all around the world, also bringing people home for slavery?

    Nazis having sexual intercourse outside marriage in graveyards, Hitlers sexual deviations? No, never heard of those. I DO know that hitler is believed to have had a sexually transmitted disease (wasn't it syphilus?) which caused his madness (as some of the other big rulers have had).

    Origin of racism is NOT distored sexuality and violence in the family. Tell me how that is linked to not liking other races?

    I can tell you that racism is cultivated by perceived inequalities. From personal experience I have seen racism expressed in the form: "blacks are taking our jobs and should go home to their own country" or "blacks are criminals and should go find a job".

    In the first example personal well being is endangered by the perceived invasion of other racial groups (by immigration) and in the second example by perceived criminal behaviour of other racial groups.

    Doesn't have anything to do with sexual natures of any kind.

    btw, blacks in the example aren't african americans for whoever would go against the use of the word black.

    I think Booda's talking about the racist white males being afraid of the black male's mythological 'sexual prowess'...
     
  17. Dec 29, 2003 #16
    It may be a particularly American idea, probably starting back in the days of slavery, when big muscular black men labored in the field, while the weak pasty white landowners sat around getting fat and lazy...that somehow there is a primal sexual something or other about black men(and their gigantic genitalia) that makes some white males feel sexually inferior.


    Or something like that...

    But black men don't walk around showing off their bananas, do they? Seriously, I am very surprised by that reasoning. It definately isn't an argument for racism here in Europe.

    LOL< I don't really understand it myself...but you can see it in the (possibly stereotypical) behavior of many American racists...the need to protect the 'innocent white women' from being corrupted by the 'potent jungle sexuality' of black men.

    LMAO!!

    I never said it was a sane or healthy viewpoint...just that it seems to exist.

    I think another aspect of racism and sexuality is that some men only feel masculine when they can feel superior to others. They may beat their wives, or be rude to subordinates at work, or harbor racist attitudes in order to feel manly.
