Omo. How white your shirts can be. Purity, the Christian myth, repackaged for mass consumption. So, when a black Jewish woman emphasises the Black Slave Holocaust, we have a convenient fix for that sort of nonsense. Out, damned spot, Party scrubbed clean with an application of blame culture.
Once we knew everyone’s business. Now we play Wolf in the dark, our cluelessness intermittently assuaged by electric light. This is how the hegemony is preserved. It’s not conscious. We go for the “trouble maker”. There’s no room for nuance, dog must eat dog. White dog comes out top dog.
The tragedy is, you play the game but you don’t even know you’re playing.
