    Racism makes the racist feel empowered. Those who experience it are at risk of piling it on the group below them on the ladder. I remember one 2am at a chicken joint, a group of AA calling the Latino counterman "Poncho." It was very striking. You could sense that doing this really made them feel powerful. And it's just the way the people at the top want it: it keeps everyone in their place.
