People act like you can get rid of the outgroup, but you can't. It's baked into human nature. There will always be an outgroup, an "othered" group that you perceive as dangerous and whose motivations seem malicious or unknowable, unless maybe if you practice metta every day or something.

A lot of wokeness seems to be shifting who the outgroup is, rather than actually making meaningful systemic changes.
