You've made some good points and I appreciate your tolerant spirit Blair. Your wisdom shines through all that you say. However, until you educate ignorant whites about the past intellectual achievements and contemporary plight of black people (on issues of housing discrimination, banking discrimination, criminal justice issues or whatever) whether they appreciate this information at this time or not, you will never be helpful in the benefits of our struggles…
I am not patronizing you Blair, however in your hearts of hearts you are mindful that a conscious white man like you is not someone that can simply frequent a load of Black people and dream of racial equality sitting back comfortably while Black collective decline. A genuine White freedom fighter is someone that takes his knowledge with Whites and Blacks who have sick love affairs with White folk who blind them to the truth, to teach them real history! I encourage you to use your White male privilege, power, strength and abundance toward the betterment and education of all humanity. Do so, until then you shouldn’t the benefits of our struggles..period.
