beyond the pale
Contrary to the Right insisting otherwise, I personally believe that MUCH of this anti-immigration fuss is based in a profound and deeply-entrenched cultural and historical racist ideology. I think that there are racists walking amongst us who quite literally have NO IDEA that they're racist -- because such narrow-minded thought is all they've ever known. To ask them to examine their own white privilege is like asking a carp, "How's the water?" They simply have no idea; THEY ARE FUCKING SWIMMING IN IT.
