Anonymous - What causes some internet trolls to hate black people?
Muhammad Rasheed - They don't all "hate." There are many classes of people involved in the online trolling of Black people, and even though some absolutely do hate, that strong emotion isn't necessary to perform the act. Most perform the trolling with the coldly stoic face of a professional paint scraper even though the activity itself can of course be considered "hateful."
Many of the trolls that specifically target Black people do so in order to sabotage liberation/empowerment activism efforts. Pro-Black activism's primary goal is to achieve full socio-political freedom for Black people and their economic inclusion in the mainstream, which will enable them to realistically compete directly with the dominant group, threatening the current wealth & power monopolies. This fact makes race relations a high stakes chess match with human civilization itself as the prize, and among the many white supremacist "race soldiers" engaged in active battle to prevent Black people from achieving their goals, there are among them some who genuinely hate the idea of the power balance flipping and Black people ruling over them on a personal level.
We now have about five centuries of this kind of thinking to saturate itself fully into the cultures and creeds of certain classes and tribes, so that the Internet trolls recruited from among them hold a deep-seated pure hatred in their hearts that drives their anti-Black systemic racism.
