The Pull to Blame and Attack

When any oppressed group begins to awarely organize to achieve its liberation, there will be a reactive attraction to get into a more comfortable end of the pattern—a reactive attraction toward blaming and attacking other oppressed groups who have mistreated it in the past. The mistreatment has occurred, but the pull will be to blame and attack others, fighting with them as if they were the source of the oppression and leaving the real and more threatening oppressors unchallenged.
