Reply to "Conservative Idiots"

ISOME, my point here intersects with your Masomakli Repost:

"White people in America are not intentionally your enemy. They really could not care less. They don't mean to hurt and disenfranchise you. It's just that when they work in their own best interest, black folk who don't move fast enough, sometimes get crushed."

It goes without saying that "they" have exported that domestic product abroad.

Another problem I have with speaking from the assumption that "they care" is that it falls prey to the traditional White frame that paints "them" and their intentions as honorable despite the facts or results.

I guess I would need Noam Chomsky or someone to characterize it best but the idea that the U.S. approaches situations with honorable intentions (which grants a huge benefit of a doubt especially considering the historical track record) but just stumble-fucks its way unwittingly into quagmires, etc. with all types of disasterous effects and unanticipated collateral damage is tantamount to promoting White Manifest Destiny and holding to the belief that they were/are "good Christian folk" just trying to "civilize" the "savages" around the world as oppose to them fulfilling their own self(ish)-interests. (See the Masomakli Repost again.)

Conservatives being the most resolved and [openly] articulate of those promoting The Manifest Destiny policies of the 21st Century.
