The past few days, I have been having a quasi discussion with someone who I accuse of operating a hate blog. Their defense of what they are doing is eerily similar to the Klan’s claim that they are not about hate but rather love, love for their own culture, the preservation of whiteness and the like. I watched this Al-Jazeera report and couldn’t help but get nostalgic of all the logical fallacies I have encountered when discussing things with people who operate on the idea that their culture is being overtaken by ‘others’. A lot of the discussion about racism is about the semantics. Of course, hate is a relative term. It is hard to prove to someone that they are being hateful.
