I am Prejudiced . . !!

What about? Everything! Including race . . .

Why? Because I'm human.
Why does the STATE want me to hate myself for being human? Because that is how, to a large extent, it controls (has always controlled) society: by making people suppress and feel guilty about their natural inclinations. In the past it was “original sin”, especially our sexuality, we were made to feel ashamed of, and dependent on the Church (in the |Middle Ages an essential pillar of the state) for salvation. Now it's “prejudice”, especially “racial prejudice” we are supposed to, deny, suppress and hate ourselves for.
Just as the Church once policed our natural sinfulness and belief in state ideology (i.e. its interpretation of the Bible), now the STATE polices our natural inclination to prejudice and belief in the universalistic, cosmopolitan, left-wing ideology (not coincidentally, the exact, put equally extreme, opposite of Nazi racial ideology) of “colourblindness”, of race and ethnic origins being of no social or political significance (e.g. for national identity), except to evil “racists”.
It is as natural for us to be prejudiced in favour of our own race as it is to be prejudiced in favour of an attractive member of the opposite sex. When you know someone as an individual, of course, that prejudice is greatly reduced, or disappears entirely – but how many people can we know as individuals? Just a tiny number. The vast majority are, and will always remain, strangers towards whom we are bound to have prejudices.
It is these natural and healthy prejudices, in respect to race and ethnic origins, which the STATE demonises and suppresses, not least, because it falsely claims our tribal and national loyalty for ITSELF.
Of course, we have to control our racial prejudices and inclinations, in a rational and civilised fashion, just as we have to control our sexual prejudices and inclinations. But this is the responsibility of the individual. Only if the individual fails to behave in a civilised fashion by persistently being offensive towards a member of the opposite sex or another ethnic group, is it appropriate for the state to intervene.
If the state were to try telling us what our sexual prejudices should and shouldn't be, we would have no difficultly recognising the absurdity it. But because we are so used to identifying with the state as our nation (although manifestly, it is not), it has been able – up until now, at least – to get away with it.
