Wow Firecat, that's a great point, which honestly had not occurred to me, but it seems obvious now.
That's something I would love to know more about, or even hear any conjecture on your guys part. I can't begin to guess the motivation of white racists. I can understand perhaps, being afraid of a group identity, which is what I have inarticulately tried to describe here. Just as I'm not afraid of bald guys, but throw in a pair of red suspenders and Doc Martens, and I do a head count and look for easy exits, which I tried to justify here.
White Power has to be a learned behavior. Like a blind adherence to a sports team, a religion, or a political group, that is trained from infancy. Gangs on the other hand are probably a survival mechanism, a way of narrowing down who whips your butt, and a support system in an unforgiving and hostile environment.
Have you seen 'American History X'? It can clue one in to a degree but it is by no means the definition of how one gets caught into the mentality of white supremacy. However, you can really just trace it down to a fundamental lack of understanding or education for some it's a religion.
