Modern racism is closely combined with class rule, Capitalism, Imperialism and the old concept of “divide and rule”. It is designed to separate exploited and oppressed people and playing one against the other. But it never was able to prevent people of “different races” from mixing since we all belong to one kind of beings (it has to be mentioned anyway that a lot of “mixing” during time of slavery was an act of violence and sexual racism). But racism especially in its “modern” North European, mainly German inspired form, has dug a perverse seed into the ground. On one side science proves that there are no “pure races” and deep thinking could cure also people in “privileged” groups to do away with their arrogance and understand that you cannot even miss one of your ancestors without being dissolved into blue air, but if not having had the chance of developing such deep understanding racism can drive a person with a – somehow hidden – mixed ancestry to perverse hatred.
History of Nazism provides us with examples of Nazis or Nazi officers with Jewish ancestry like Air Force General Milch (1) who denounced even the fatherhood of his father. The “non-Teutonic” appearance of some Nazi “Greats” even culminates in bizarre genetic revelations (2). In modern Europe there is the outstanding example of Csanad Szegedi, a leader of Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party (Movement for a Better Hungary) with its anti-Jewish policy, whose grandmother was a Holocaust survivor (3).
