    for a second convince yourself that racism, even the most radical militant racism, is limited to the poor, to "trailer trash", to those brought up in racism.

    You'll find groups like the KKK and the Skinheads in places like San Francisco and NYC as well as Bubbatown, Alabama.

    Stupidity and amorality isnt limited by birthplace, economic circumstance, race or education.

    •  On the whole, you are correct (none)
      However, in the case of Mr. Hale, I would attribute his ethos as being fed by the environment in which he grew up.

      The same simple-mindedness that is exhibited by Mr. Hale is on full display every time the local Caterpillar/UAW strike occurs. Again, attributable to a depressed economy, simplistic ideas, and pervasive racism, blind violence directed at an objectified victim is a common occurence.

      Having been inside those circles and experiencing it first hand is illuminating. Limited to those environs? No. Endemic to those environs? Yes.

      •  I'll make you a deal (none)
        How about we dissect him and see who's right?

        Whichever of us is wrong buys the beer?
