Given your history of hostility towards me and almost everyone else who agrees with my views, I wonder if this first conciliatory type of response of yours is just an attempt to provoke or show-up gman.
In my view, you have been doing more than disagreeing with my views. You have a history of nitpicking and misrepresenting them. I saw some recent attempts of this in the archive. You have also been similarly hostile to other moderators and members on this forum for no justifiable reason other than we see eye to eye on many issues.
The thread where you and gman fell out recently is one of the more informative threads I have read on this site for years. There were so many issues there that should be properly addressed. I wonder if everyone would get back to it when tempers have cooled a bit. It is linked here:
I can vividly remember when you gave the passionate story about how you had met gman, how he inspired you and how you did not judge him by his light skin. You posted that when we were reasoning on colorism which, in my view, was another of your attempts to get gman on your side against us. Gman replied and agreed that the debate was valid and that he did not feel he was being discriminated against by the discussions (even if he felt otherwise it would not have made a difference to what I was advancing).
While back then you clearly tried to recruit gman to side against us in an attempt to discredit the colorism debate, given that you had a recent falling out with him, I cannot help but wonder if you are now attempting to one-up him by taking a different tone with me.
What is your attitude now about addressing colorism?
