  1. Ya goofing a bit. But the religion takes this stuff really seriously and lest ye be caught by their acolytes and forced to repent/recant know that there is no safety.
  2. But remember Blake, that according to Social Justice Theory, "One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an antiracist. There is no in-between safe space of “not racist.” The claim of “not racist” neutrality is a mask for racism"
  3. Yes I would agree on Sam being one of more than a few with the integrity to undertake these discourse in a rational manner. Again, someone I have been following for a number of years. And I would amplify your last point, that the 'hystereonic' (to dredge up a long forgotten neologism that once was the subject of some mirth on this forum) approach is never going to be productive.
  4. Hello Orfeu good to see you here. Been a very long while. I concur on both Loury and Hughes, and the shedding of light. One wonders however how many will continue to walk around with their lids clenched tightly preferring the darkness. I met Coleman a couple years ago, a great guy.

  8. Related to the topic of protest...about an event that still has not be acknowledged by PRC/CCP, who hold over 1 million Uyghurs in concentration camps.
  9. Interesting post. Is that what you gleaned from what I have posted here? Sort of demonstrates what I am alluding to.
  10. These 2 guys are terrific. Keep in mind the insidious anti-Semitic thread running through BLM and some of their allies.
  11. I like this one. The white-splaining in this is strong. And the guy at the ends yellin 'Shame on you'
  12. Hi Scylla!😃 Up to your old tricks again I see.😉(will you never learn lol) white anti-racism can thus be identified: 1) a fetishistic preoccupation with disproving one’s racism; 2) ostentatious forms of antiracism that function as means of self-promotion, as paradoxical means of white self-love; 3) the consolidation and extension of agency through redemptive gestures of ‘heroic white antiracism’; 4) ‘charitable antiracism’ which fixes tolerance within a model of charity, as an act of generosity and that reiterates the status and role of an antiracist benefac
