Response to 1StrongBlackMan (Reply #108)

111. Very well

You are asking me a couple of questions there, so I will attempt to answer sincerely and honestly; and by all means, let us factor in the fact that I'm white and therefore a certain amount of racism is going to be hard-wired into me. That can't be denied IMO, but it can be accounted for, and compensated for. I've been called a 'white guilt wimp' by passing trolls and I say with the strongest emphasis: FUCK those mother fuckers. This is a job we need to be working on every single day and it ain't just about black people. Their slow holocaust is joined by the Poor, Native Americans, Hispanic people, LGBT people, Atheists....as a liberal I will stand with all and WOE unto the white people who do not join me. They are part of the problem.

AND Bernie is NOT repeat NOT one of those people.

Sorry to be so long-winded but I think this stuff needs to be said. Thank you for your patience.

....why is it that it is always those talking about race are interrupted by white folks to tell us we are being divisive....?


I see a bit of the problem right here, frankly. The usage of terms like 'always' is something that should be avoided IMO. Is my telling you this considered 'whitesplainin'? I can't help any of that, all I can do is be sincere and honest, as I hope you are. Terms like 'always', 'never'....ANY kind of stereotyping is making the same mistake the white man did. Again this is only my opinion, which you are welcome to disagree with.

And no one feels concern about themy open the door to rat fucking?


Again, I'm sorry but this language just doesn't help. What's this 'no one' business? Where do you get that? If you think my concern about ratfucking only goes in one direction, then you surely don't know me; and I see posters all over DU that have been fair spoken.

I hasten to re-emphasize that this is all only one guy's opinion. If you want to advocate, I should think you would be wanting to win hearts and minds; this kind of language doesn't help. If you are seeking to 'divide', keep on talking that way.

We need each other. We need to avoid stereotyping each other. I have practiced this and will continue to practice it and I hope all people of good will agree.

To conclude: I hope that my opinion doesn't offend. I wish to be part of the Solution. Please do correct me if I've got anything wrong, I can take it to my friends and family of color and get their opinion as well (they find no fault with me last time I checked).

It goes without saying that you don't know me; I could be some Rovian rat fuck bastard trying to make all black people angry. For all I know you could be fucking Ron Christie with Clarence Thomas sitting next to him. How can I know? One indication is how you speak. At that point it's up to my trusty Bullshit Detector.

I wish you a good day. We need each other.
