In Response To: an analogy (ras adam simeon)
This is a Black Based Movement. Whites should be coming here to learn from Blacks, and to try to get ideas from Blacks on what they could do. Of course they should share their views but the focus should be maintained. (This is my opinion)
I don't see where you were attacked for trying to make a race of people do anything, but you are even free to present this distortion.
I don't feel most of the issues you bring up are important to me, but I respect your right as a long-standing poster to raise your concerns. I do not go to those threads and post that they are non-issues.
But here I raised an issue on one thread, and your first response was to call it a non-issue, while knowing fully well that you do influence the minds of a set of ill-informed ones through the wide promotion of what you do. It is no consolation to me hearing you say it is my opinion where you are privileged enough to have your opinions reproduced and promoted more readily than the common Black folks who are way more informed. Anyhow I have been responding to YOUR opinions.
Also, it is arrogance because whites control most of the media, and even websites related to African issues. They arrogantly project what they want and try to dilute important African concerns. By you also calling my issue a non-issue, and also doing it in a Black Based Movement, you are directly contributing to that widespread White anti-Black overbearing conduct. So in my mind you are also guilty of White arrogance.
