We can look at the taboo as a vital, intelligent creature that we forged an alliance with over many millennia. It helped our ancestors survive, reinforcing in them love for their own kin compounded with a deep mistrust of outsiders. In return this beast was granted sanctuary in the dark recesses of the psyche. There it was out of the way and not posing any danger; for under the terms of the symbiosis it had no motive to encroach inside. Now the human has broken the contract and the worm has turned. For all our efforts to eliminate racism from society, it has become more rampant.
