How those holding power in the Confederate states of the United States view non-whites is how Spartans viewed the helots-a population to be regularly warred upon in order to sustain political power.
All of this discrimination is ‘rule by law’ which isn’t ‘rule of law’ and consists of the imposition of ‘badges of slavery’ on non-whites [can’t vote, must reproduce] and is made possible by the current corrupt majority on the US Supreme Court which pretends that racial discrimination and bigotry has ceased in the U.S.
The racial, and class, oppression and tyranny has accelerated since the corrupt Shelby County v. Holder [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelby_County_v._Holder] case in which the corrupt majority Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and Alito pretended to believe that “the disparate treatment of the states is “based on 40 year-old facts having no logical relationship to the present day” and thus is not responsive to current needs.”
These words are simply an updated version of the Dred Scott Supreme Court corrupt majority [Taney, Wayne, Catron, Daniel, Nelson, Grier, Campbell] words. The Dred Scott majority ruled that black people “are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word ‘citizens’ in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States” Taney wrote “They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.”

What brought about her boycott in Israel was her interpretation of Eichmann and her characterization of the victims of the Shoah.
Race in the US… Catch-22- If I don’t see you, you are invisible. If I do see you, you are seen as a threat…

And there are people who ‘want’ to be conned in order to get what they want and they ‘pretend’ to be fooled.

There is no such thing as pure thought: thinking is a socio-historical form of activity, and there is nt a universal standpoint to discern “truth”.
‘Identity thinking’ is misrepresenting reality by putting specific phenomena under general, abstract classificatory headings.
‘Identity thinking’ is fundamentally concerned not to understand phenomena but to control and manipulate it.
The source of today’s disaster is the domination of nature and human beings by other human beings.
A critique of modernity must also be a critique of premodernity; a turn toward the postmodern cannot simply be a return to the premodern.
The instrumentalization of reason and positivism, morality is put under the invalid, “meaningless” category of subjective knowledge.
Intelligence is a moral category; the separation of feeling and understanding dismembers man into function.
The ‘culture industry’ promotes domination by subverting the psychological development of the mass of people in capitalist society.
The commodities of the culture industry are increasingly standardized, formulaic, and repetitive in character.
The standardization of music promotes a general condition of immaturity, prohibiting the exercise of any critical or reflexive faculties.
