The racist is deeply afraid of the terrorist...

The racist is deeply afraid of the terrorist because the racist knows exactly how the monster is created. The racist knows this because they have created and encouraged their own monsters and they know exactly what those monsters are capable of.

The white supremacists – the KKK – who claim close ties to Christianity – are created, for the most part, by Christian racists. They are fueled by Christian racists. They are encouraged by Christian racists. The Christian racist secretly and sometimes not so secretly condones the acts of terrorism committed by white supremacists.

The Muslim extremists – the jihadists – are created, for the most part, by Muslim racists. They are fueled by Muslim racists. They are encouraged by Muslim racists. The Muslim racists secretly and sometimes not so secretly condone the acts of terrorism committed by the jihadists.

Are all Christians racists? No. Are all Muslims racists? No. Do all racists give their consent to terrorism? No. Do we understand that every one of us is a racist to one degree or the other? Yes, I think we understand that. Do we understand that it is of the utmost importance to fight the racism within ourselves and to loudly proclaim that we will not let that fear of the outsider dominate us? Some of us understand that. I understand that. And I want everyone to understand that. I want every single one of us to fight that fight and to stop encouraging the monster.
