The obvious pattern of behavior to recognize, emanating from the usual dissenters and apologist of white America, is the patter of obfuscation and misdirection in the face of challenge. These dissenters and apologist are not seekers and embracers of truth; rather, they are defenders of myths, propaganda and stereotypes, for the benefit of the image of white America and white leadership of this nation.
When one points out something bad in this country, they tell you to go live in another country and refuse to invest effort in changing this nation. As long as there is another place worse than America, they will not be motivated to change America because they can always say "If you don't like it then move to so and so". Thus, the only trigger for change in their minds is at the point that this nation is as bad as others. One morning, these folks will wake up in America and that will be true...it will be as bad, if not worse, than other places, thanks in part to people like CF who only thinks its a problem if other places don't have it worse.
These people who refuse to address the contradictions of the propaganda and promise of America, with that of its reality are enabler of the decline of this nation. They are more than enablers...they are cosigners of it, while at the same time fancying themselves as patriots and defenders of America. A true friend will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear in order to feel good or maintain and illusion about yourself.
These dissenters and apologist are not friends of black people, nor are they friends of America.
