I get so sick and tired of hearing this bs from this republican lawn jockey. He acts as if HIS father is the only Black person or Black man who did ALL these things in a racist society. Millions of Black people in America did the same things he says his father did, accomplished the same things, his father did, served in WWI/WWII/Vietnam/Etc., and did so in the mist of a racist nation with the only difference being other Black people go to work every day, graduate from school (or get a...

Yes, that's why I was talking about Progressivism . Progressivism is not Democrat, Republican or Independent, or Liberal or Conservative. It's about progress (the root word). I was saying that campuses should promote social progressivism because progressivism support social justice and anti-racism.

So please explain where these reparations are going to come rom. This is something you're for? Am I correct? If you're for it, it will only come from the system as it presently exists (Democrat or Republican). Either that or you radically change the system. Which you don't seem to favor.

I think the point that she was trying to make is just that the Republiocan leadership runs roughshod over anything and anyone that does not explicitly support Republican objecitves. For ecxample, seeing the extraordinary difference in how Republicans went after her husband because he lied about consensual sex versus how they turn their eyes from criminal behavior in the current Whitehouse that has contradicted the Constitution and Bill of Rights, as well as law.

There is no watering over her analogy, there is nothing she can say or for that matter you can say that can juxtapose rich folk and bureaucracy with the way Plantations were run.

You have any proof that this is what she meant? I opined as you did that if she was talking about the Congress relationship with the masses of men and women in America as one of Slave and Master than she is not that far from the truth albeit the analogy still pales in comparison to what our ancestors lived through and that legacy should not be disrespected by equating it with realities far less inhumane.
