John Wright attempts to criticize identity politics and the Alt-Right, and in doing so, demonstrates that he does not correctly grasp what identity is, or how identity politics tend to function in modern multiracial societies.
People don't always side with their tribal group. However, the simple reality is that most do.
First, identity is not limited to race. Religion, too, is an identity, and one of the most powerful. Second, while men can, and do, surmount their racial, grievance, and religious identities in favor of other identities and ideologies, the salient point is that the vast majority will not.
It's funny because in my mid-teenage years, I didn't comprehend this. I would be talking to my mother about recent events regarding the stupidity of some Muslims in Pakistan and her scornful response would be, "You talk like a Christian!"
I realized quickly that that stupidity wasn't limited to a few. Their tribal, national and religious identities are extremely potent. For example, Pakistanis in England mostly marry other Pakistanis. That's not a surprise. What's ugly is that 60% of Pakistanis in the UK are marrying their cousins from Pakistan! They're literally marrying within the tribe. This partly explains their disdain and contempt for whites and infidels since the majority of them have no plans to intermarry.
My allegiance* doesn't lie with my race, tribe, religion or birth nation. I also understand that my way of thinking is in a tiny minority. This is why I agree with the Alt-Right since it provides the least violent means of resolving the national and religious conflicts of our time.
