Much of your post is a repetition of what I have also posted in the past. So I will address only the parts that I feel are a misrepresentation or misunderstanding of what I posted.
If I did not have a measure of patience then I would not be able to have these discussions. You should re-evaluate my views because I am always all embracing but only to the ones who get their facts and attitudes right.
Let me first say that you are entitled to hold whatever perception of me that you wish but your “everyone first” assertion is ABSOLUTELY wrong. I place MY SELF first. I discern based on character in relation to all of history and that leaves me open to the POSSIBILITY of any and everyone who does the work to develop. I assist all who are making the effort and when I condemn the attitudes of some Whites it is not because I completely rule them out but it is because I see their poor conduct jumping out and I will put it in its place in the hope that they learn. It is up to them to learn or go much the same as it is for Africans.
I choose to express what I know is correct. My language is tailored by my awareness that does not completely dismiss any group of people because of their race.
So in putting MYSELF first, I have to put the TRUTH first notwithstanding that it may not be popular among some. When I address issues with Africans, Indians, Whites or Chinese, I expect them to present what they understand and likewise I explain the truth as it relates to my cultural views which always defines the order and people related to original thought. It is on this basis we engage the dialogue. Whether they then choose to become better informed after I point out their misunderstandings and misrepresentations and after I show them where they can get help is a measurement of their personal integrity. It is on this basis I discern their maturity in relation to their integrity.
“For me, personally, on principle I agree with you. But where we disagree is when you put white people into the mix.”
This is a contradiction as you can either disagree or agree on principle. It is not that I am including White people in the mix, but I consider all people as part of the audience when I speak or write. I am being true to MYSELF when I say that I cannot omit any race or otherwise ethnic group from the processes for a restoration of justice. The very way I expect and sometimes demand that other ethnic groups be more considerate when they plan so that their actions can be tailored by their awareness of the effects it has on others, likewise I would not be inconsiderate and I am not a hypocrite.
Whites, Chinese or other groups of people should understand that they are all connected to the abuses of other people by virtue of either their indifferences or general ignorance of the effects their spending power and other actions have on other people. It is with the awareness that all parties were affected by the abuses irrespective or how they view their present situation is the reason all are considered in my view. Who suffers the effects of the abuses of others are best qualified to explain that to them. That is educating them.
I do believe that Africans must learn to appreciate how they look as a race but this physical appearance is not all of what constitutes them. I keep the door open to the possibility of anyone realizing the truths in the right order.
Yes all people should appreciate our Black ancestors that were responsible for World development and in so doing they get over the fears of Blackness. This is not only true for Africans but all people.
Being truthful is what makes this research possible.
