Manufacture hatreds

The “practice of exclusion” and the “language of exclusion” go hand in hand with a whole array of emotional responses to the other, ranging from hatred to indifference; these exclusions both call forth emotional responses and are sustained by them…. Some of the most brutal acts of exclusion depend on hatred, and if the common history of person and communities does not contain enough reasons to hate, masters of exclusion will rewrite the histories and fabricate injuries in order to manufacture hatreds.
