I just read a post by The Angry Black Woman that a) made me sick, and b) prompted me to go, out of curiosity, to a white supremacist message board to see how bad it really was there.

It is horrible.

I don't know what went wrong with these people, but something has to be done to prevent it going wrong in any more people. This whole idea of a "race"--based on shallow exterior characteristics--being somehow inherently superior, is degrading to all people, especially the ones who hold that belief and act on it. I knew that their sickness was still out there, but looking right at it made me understand how much of that vile nastiness goes on every day, to the extent that people make the time to get online with their fellow mad freaks and discuss how best to make people see the importance of their *cause.*

I'm completely disgusted.
