Marah, it seems like you are saying that because I wrote about psychopathic behavior that I am saying that he is not racist. And this is frankly not the case. I am saying that his behavior is racist (racism being a sociological construct, which I know you know) but he could also be motivated by other factors (psychology) in addition to having a racist perspective.
Like you said, you asked me why I said what I said, and I told you and gave my reason. I also clarified that the social construct of "psycho" and the clinical "psychopath" term that I used are not the same and gave a link to a brief article to give further clarification. I posted the link in addition to one section because there is much more to it than just the piece that I quoted. To me it is a no-brainer that racism is involved here, but there is more to it, just like with most hate crimes. I just don't believe that someone does something just because
they are racist. That is too broad a reason for my mind to work with. There's always something more.
If you want to only look at the racist aspect that's cool, but I don't automatically think that way, so I'll just have to shift gears.
