Adam you can whine as much as you want.
Here are some of the ways you use loaded generalizations to point fingers at a few Blacks (including I) on this Board who disagree with your statements or the positions you are advocating. Apparently only you, Ras Adam, are entitled to generalize, and why not? You are White and privileged so you feel you have also cornered the world market on how to speak.
Anyhow here are your choice words/(LOADED GENERALIZATIONS):
'ku klux klan'
'adopting the oppressors policies of bigotry, segregation, separation, superiority…'
'eugenics racial purity Hitler style talk.'
'adopting the evil people's ideologies'
'following the example of Hitler skinheads'
These are some quotes from you Ras Adam in the past six weeks or so, all directed toward Blacks on this board. Others can decide if this is a fair representation of our views.
You started off by saying that our discussion on whites' claim to Repatriation to Africa was a non-issue, as you only see a few of them doing it. That was your position, notwithstanding the fact that we were saying that Reparation to Africa, and lands and funds granted for such was for Black Africans and their descendents who were forcefully removed from Africa.
You then came up with "Race Mixing is a great tool to break down racism". Well we had a time with that, showing how ridiculous that proposal was.
You failed to see that with the state of the world and the lack of redress to Blacks, that Blacks do have a right to feel and express, especially in a Black Movement, that race mixing is not good. You pretend not to see the context, and you move like if what some others are saying can actually block you from doing what you want. Although you are cool with your White female. You want to encourage Blacks to race mix as a tool to break down racism. All the arguments about the real effect of that, like Colorism, has not impacted on you, so you arrogantly stick to your position and then claim it is about equality and following Selassie's speeches.
And finally yesterday:
ras adam simeon said: "I'm sure i'll continue to be your scapegopat whipping boy and i will not shut up speaking out against hate until they throw me off."
You apparently do not see the irony of referring to yourself as a 'whipping boy.' There are ones here who know the reality of being a 'whipping boy' far beyond a mere figure of speech. But privilege dictates that even the language itself is fair game for White colonization.
I am sure you like Black customers, so when all is said and done you will bravely take the terrible 'whipping' you get here as long as you can get more exposure.
You are just lucky you are not Black and on the receiving end of a real whipping. You obviously do not see how careless you are with those terms and loaded generalizations around Blacks, as if you can really know what Blacks think and feel about being a "whipping boy".
Don't try to paint Black Africans here as your enemy. You are your own worst enemy. Arrogance is a real issue for all to address, but White people's arrogance is a HELL of a thing. White people's arrogance is why so many people are killed daily as it is backed by media, political, military and nuclear weapons control. They feel they are supremely entitled to control everything and everyone on earth. (I can generalize too)
Well try dealing with this one. Conscious Blacks also have a nuclear Bomb, but guess what, it cannot be taken away or controlled by others. Check your rage and see if you know what exploded in you. That is real nuclear power that eats at the inflated ego and strips it bare.
Ignorant and arrogant whites will increasingly have much to be fearful about. I expect to see more rushing to African countries like Sudan, and African groups like Rastafari, trying to salvage some measure of control over others to feed their insatiable, egotistical appetite. But to those who cross certain Black ones, the bomb that can heal can also destroy; it's your choice.
See who walks with the power of Rastafari.
