A habit is an everyday expression of unintentionally obtained and individually embodied knowledge. The term “habit” is often loaded with negative connotations; habits are to be broken or unlearned.

"Look at the neo-Nazis, who are obsessed with other races and cultures. You are not so obsessed if there is(n't) an attraction where you are trying to suppress the most. Race and sex are intertwined. I think racism is a form of sexuality. It is all about a sexual jealousy and a sexual threat."
