Agreed — I’ve been considering that tendency as a potential byproduct (or constitutional element?) of whiteness. Of course anyone of any particular grouping can be so motivated, but there’s such a preponderance of white folk (often men) who display this behavior I think its fair to call it a pattern. Some questions are: how meaningful is the correlation is, on what basis does one decide the correlation is relevant, and if deemed relevant is there anything worth doing about it?
