The author contends that racist thinking is rooted in an idolatrous attempt to enhance one's own self-image by identification with a "pseudo-species" which is stereotyped as superior. Historical examples and psychological analysis are employed to show that creation and enforcement of this abstract stereotype are inauthentic and dehumanizing for both oneself and the "out-race." Genuine maturity and self-identity are possible only on the basis of concrete and non-exclusionary human associations.
