Brings back memories. I heard that back in Black Panther days, around 1969.

The argument was that racism is irrational. So if you hate people of a particular race irrationally, you're a racist.

But if you're black and hate whites, that's perfectly rational. And you're not a racist.

Instead, you're a reasonable, reasoning human being. Since whites hate blacks irrationally, whites are obviously unreasonable and unreasoning. So they're more primitive than reasonable people, who should hate whites for their irrational hatred.

Once again, Humpty wins.
