is useless. A human being with no moral centre. You can refer him to others. Please refrain from using him in any context with me. Yes, we are fighting hate and generation(s)-long racism here. And yes punishment is meted out in certain high profile cases. Not enough in my book seeing as the same awareness my parents and grandparents had about racist murderous Caucasians is the same I must have. Heather Heyer, Trayvon Martin et al would possibly disagree with your premise also. I do. Perfection? Unobtainable in our present state(s) of mind. True reckoning and accountability for the myriad racist acts against POC and communities of colour in this 21st century still have not been achieved.

You have your path follow it. I have mine. They may merge down the line when obvious hypocrisy is not apparent.

Part of rejoining the global community means taking these stands Mike 03 Mar 2021 #1
