I am working on my attitudes towards blonde people. To someone else this might not seem like a 'race' issue but it is for me. I know my fantasies that blondes have it so much easier in life. Like rich people, it's hard for me to empathise with them or imagine that have any real problems. I know my envy. I see that blondes are instantly considered attractive and honest, innocent and desirable - 'fair' in all its meanings. They were Nazis, or at least they passed as Aryan - I have, deep down, internalised them as more beautiful than myself. I am working with a very blonde woman and I have to work consciously against my own feelings of distrust and repulsion.
