Fyahman is quite correct in what he said.
This is the reason Whites, and, to a lesser degree, other light-skin ones are automatically unsuitable for leadership in Black movements, and anywhere that calls for a restoration of social justice. All judgments by whites/light-skin ones on Blacks are out of order and it will remain that way. It does not matter if what they say about Blacks appears to be true.
livelyup said: "..and as a consequence of this dynamic it almost stands to reason that the most effective role to be played by members of the socio-cultural elite, ie whit folk, is to dismantle the system from within, to act as a fifth column so to speak. Because a flipside of our position is that we are ideally placed to overstand, manipulate, and transform babylon itself."
This is another illusion that is also the product of 'arrogance'. Without constant informed Black help, Whites cannot work effectively to dismantle the system from within. Anything whites do without informed Black guidance will have a negative effect on the people they claim they want to help. There is no exception to this for the same reasons I have often shared on this board.
Try to think it out and see if you can understand why this is so.
