because we are stupid animal brains that judge things instinctively and based on superficial appearances and minor differences in aesthetics
feels>>reals, and often racism is just a gut feeling of fear/mistrust/dislike of the "other" and that which looks and acts "different" to "your people"
where the rationale is built FROM the immediate racist emotional response and not towards it (as in i have a gut reaction to seeing a woman in a hijab on the street, or cholos loudly playing strange foreign music at a bloc party with their tank tops revealing tattoos) and build my interpretation of WHY i feel this way from the emotion– including all the "evidence" and "facts" to support my original feeling and none of the facts that dispute it, and in so not coming to a conclusion based on reasoning at all..
can i think?
fuck it its fucking bedtime
