“The strong ego..causes the subject to experience its own enjoyment as alien — as the enjoyment of the other. ..A strong ego is no defense against racism. ..The subject develops its ego not out of itself but on the basis of an image of its fellow being.” – TODD MCGOWAN on the nexus of racism + ideals of masculinity
