Conservatives and Liberals

Steve Sailer explains that while "conservatives typically define their groups concentrically, moving from their families outward to their communities, classes, religions, nations, and so forth," "modern liberals’ defining trait is making a public spectacle of how their loyalties leapfrog over some unworthy folks relatively close to them in favor of other people they barely know" — The Self-Righteous Hive Mind.

I suppose that explains why onservatives tend to be racist, having an obsession with "our own" people, by which they mean those who share the same skin colour.

I don't know what the term "racist" means anymore, but sometimes race is contiguous with community, like in my city's black community.

More usually, though, race is just a meaningless abstract concept, as in the "White Pride Worldwide" motto of skinheads.

I don't know what "community" means any more, when people talk of such things as "the blind community" or "the left-handed community" and there is no community that I can see.
