29. And it's reinforced in patriarchal religious doctrine

All species have biases. Right now a vast proportion of white men view the changing demographics as personally threatening. Many white males have seen their decent paying jobs outsourced to China (thank you, Romeny and your Rethug cohorts!), they see the rising tide of non-caucasion births and the influence of non-white immigrants as the end of America as they know it. They are beating against a tide that will drown them, but they will beat against that rising tide because they don't know what else to do. They're afraid and find themselves in an ever increasingly growing lack of power and hope, so they strike out at women, at minorities and at reason because they don't know what else to do. And, sadly, they will vote to empower those whose only goals are to further diminish their status because they desperately think - or hope - that by doing so they will enhance their own power by aligning themselves with those who have it.
