Which word is used in terms of meaning will vary according to the connotations. “Like-minded” became a racist code word at least in some areas. The list of synonyms below has words that in certain contexts have negative meanings. “Scheme", for example. aim purpose intent objective object goal target end design plan scheme resolve resolution determination wish desire ambition idea dream aspiration hope In a basic way, “intention” suggests forward movement. Racist goals are usually backward looking. “Like-minded” was also a phrase that was used to check for or affirm a subtle racism that was hard to pin down. It could feel more benign than it was. “Well, this is just what we are used to.” “This is the way God meant it to be."
