Their hatred assumes a surface legitimacy because the hated “whites” are just a “social construct.”

There has been a renewedinterest recently in a 2002article by Paul Craig Roberts, actually the first of two (here is the second), drawing attention to a rather frighteningphenomenon at Harvard University: the effort by a professor,Noel Ignatiev, and his journal, Race Traitor, to promote the “cultural and psychological genocide of whites.”
Now that’s an odd choice of words—guaranteed to draw attention to himself and his ideas. Was he in any way also promoting the slaughter/liquidation of whites, as some of hisadversaries have suggested? Ignatiev says no. In hiswords,
We frequently get letters accusing us of being “racists,” just like the KKK, and have even been called a “hate group.” …
Our standard response is to draw an analogy with anti-royalism: to oppose monarchy does not mean killing the king; it means getting rid of crowns, thrones, royal titles, etc….
Ignatiev et al. have developed a story that goes as follows: A bunch of very bad people got together and created a category called “white” to which they belong but people with different colored skin can’t belong. Then they made laws that favored people in the white category, they colluded with other whites to dominate the economic and political process, and they invented baseless scientific theories in which whiteness had its roots in real biological differences.
