The transgressor who sees himself, or herself, above a group, or collective, in his, or her, violation of the group, the individual imagines himself, or herself, as being the actual victim. For the transgressor, being asked to respect the group, something in which the individual finds little or no value is equivalent to asking the individual to honor something he, or she, abhors. In other words, it's like asking an Orthodox Jew to esteem the gastronomical virtues of eating pork. If a transgressor violates the rights of others and downplays or makes light of their victimization, it is a clear indication he, or she, feels vindicated in his, or her, actions and has no respect or appreciation for the group.

The key word is "above", meaning "better than". So, in other words, a racist would see himself, or herself, as better than the "inferior" race and, therefore, its victimization by the racist is justifiable. If the racist is shamed by society for his, or her, racism, the racist sees himself, or herself, as the actual victim for in the mind of the racist he, or she, is wrongly shamed.

My point is being a demographic has been integrated into a society, why does the bigot expect anything less from the collective?

Of course, the bigot thinks he, or she, is justified in his, or her, bigotry and society has lost its way; but, being the persecutors are, now, the persecuted or a once acceptable behavior has lost favor in the eyes of society, the individual either conforms to society's newly found values or the individual becomes a source of dysfunction that is not compatible with the collective and is therefore alienated; in other words, the individual becomes that which he, or she, despises.
