   "Perhaps the first law of racism it that racism begets racism.
Paradoxically, so does antiracism, which focuses so much attention 
on race and implants it so deeply in the public consiousness that the
net amound of racism is greatly increased. Antiracism, moreover,
permits many people to practice racism vicariously by adopting the
cause of every race but their own."
