Re: Selwin, Downstreet et al,The Signs of Time Are Here Again

>>>>>>>.....Are you suggesting, or so it seems, that White people only developed the propensity for White superiority because of Hitler<<<<<

No! Neither am I implying that and yes! you are reading me incorrectly.

I was only being careful not to paint with such a wide brush hence my qualification "that period in time had given rise....", meaning it was bought to the forefront in the context of contrasting the Hitler, WWII and the current US political situation we are facing.

This is in no way suggesting that race superiority did not exist prior to Hitler. In fact his mention of creating a " Master Race" implies that he too had recognized that superiority but wanted Germans to be at the helm. He saw them as being the underclass to the Jews in their own country and seized on that opportunity to rally his people towards that common "enemy".

>>>>No wonder I get infuriated when I hear the world making a big deal about the holocaust as though this was the very first time that man had turned against others in the name of hatred.<<<<<

Well we know that there were other holocausts prior to the Jewish experience, though varying in magnitude and degree of brutality. Our own Black experience ranks among them so too was the Cambodian, Armenian and the Rwandan to name a few, none of which had been given the same notoriety. So I share you pain on this one.

>>>>>>Have we forgotten the Sunday afternoons when a family outing in the South would be to watch a Black man get feathered and finally hung from a tree or lamp-post with little children watching the entire spectacle? How sickening can man be?<<<<<

No aguements on this one from me.
