Tribalism, under one form or another, maybe, aka failure to realize that we are a single species, not a bunch of warring tribes. Republican vs. libertarian, this religion vs. that religion, white vs. black, it’s all insignificant bullshit, we’re just the human species, with some mild variations on look-and-feel. It’s like a cat thinking less of another cat because it has a different color fur and likes napping in a different position: really dumb the second you say it out-loud.
