“The same men, who are unprejudiced in one respect and have a poor opinion of persons who are not as liberal-minded as they, become incredibly narrow-minded and fanatical when their class interests or personal conceit are involved” – August Bebel

‘Don’t blame it on the black working class, mr racist
Blame it on your capitalist boss’
Just replace ‘black’ with whatever ethnic group is currently considered fair game.
