***** They also believe they are a priori "superior" to other races. They believe in an hierarchial racial structure in which "they" are at the top. Insecurity is a fundamental aspect of the racist thought process. If they were really "superior" why would they have to be so vigilant and authoritarian in keeping "lesser beings" in their place? If there were a natural hierarchy each being would just be in their place. racism is a fundamentally flawed style of thinking.
