This is the best phrasing of this truth I have seen. First, I appreciate you for being a Jewish person who acknowledges white identity, which in my experience, not an easy privilege to embrace in the face of neo-Nazis explicitly excluding you. But also love how accurately you describe how tentatively any group’s grasp on whiteness is.
The neo-Nazis’ fear is losing whiteness. “You will not replace us.” A lot of that stems from a long term fear that their blood and culture will be thinned out, because let’s face it, white is the recessive gene and people who become educated often leave Christianity. Well, who are the spooky people at colleges and universities? Jewish people.
I’ve really started to figure this out on a psychological level. What the hell is wrong with my threatened white comrades? They are being left behind statistically on a global level. They are sure that colleges and universities are a threat. Break it all down, and it is a fear of white people being diluted, and Christianity being liberalized, if not left. Sad.
