Jesus, too, was a dark-skinned child refugee.
There can be nothing like a reasoned philosophy attendant to fascist states nor to people deeply gripped by authoritarian/narcissistic personality disorders, for authoritarianism in any form is not susceptible to, nor can it be illuminated or underpinned by one.

So much here, now, seems to be a kind of competitive identity group-grievance and/or competitive identity group-back-slapping exercise. It's so useless, demeaning, too, as it assumes a profound lack of self-confidence, pride, intelligence. It has to be off-putting, at the least, to anyone considering this venue.
