Between me and the other world there is ever an unasked question: unasked by some through feelings of delicacy; by others through the difficulty of rightly framing it. All, nevertheless, flutter round it. They approach me in a half-hesitant sort of way, eye me curiously or compassionately, and then, instead of saying directly, How does it feel to be a problem? At these I smile, or am interested, or reduce the boiling to a simmer, as the occasion may require. To the real question, How does it feel to be a problem? I answer seldom a word.

Without addressing this fact, it is impossible to make sense of hate groups or try to eradicate them, argues Michael Kimmel , a sociologist at Stony Brook University who has written several books about masculinity and gender. For his most recent, Healing From Hate , he interviewed former extremists about the psychological and economic factors that drew them into violent white supremacist groups. Joining up is a way to get it back, to restore your masculinity. Join your brothers, your comrades. We have a sacred mission to preserve the white race. MJ : White supremacy in the United States is nothing new.

The white savior is a cinematic trope in which a white character rescues non-white characters from unfortunate circumstances. The narrative trope of the white savior is one way the mass communications medium of cinema represents the sociology of race and ethnic relations , by presenting abstract concepts such as morality as characteristics innate, racially and culturally, to white people, not to be found in non-white people. As such, white savior stories have been described as "essentially grandiose, exhibitionistic, and narcissistic" fantasies of psychological compensation.
Down at the cross where my Saviour died, Down where for cleansing from sin I cried, There to my heart was the blood applied, Singing glory to His name! I underwent, during the summer that I became fourteen, a prolonged religious crisis. And since I had been born in a Christian nation, I accepted this Deity as the only one. I supposed Him to exist only within the walls of a church—in fact, of our church—and I also supposed that God and safety were synonymous.
