Richard G. Butler, founder of the Aryan Nations, a white supremacist organization died on September 8. As an aeronautical engineer Mr. Butler spent some time in India working for the Royal Indian Air Force. [Is that what it was called?] There, the article suggests, Mr. Butler “became aware of the caste system and the idea of racial superiority.”
The article quotes Butler:
“I noticed all the maharajahs were much whiter than the average Indian,” he told The Los Angeles Times in an article published in 1999. “As you went up the hierarchy, the lighter they got. It all got me to thinking, and when I came home from overseas, I had a feeling that we, the white race, were losing the war.”
Talk about a warped line of thinking! I was aghast to learn that the racist ideologies and actions of the Aryan Nations had its beginning in India!
