IMHO, there is nothing that we could or should do to ease anyone's discomfort as it relates to our ethnicity. That is an internal issue that the uncomfortable individual needs to deal with - if they even want to. The "discomfort" is based on lies, and everyone knows that you can't make the truth out of a lie.

It seems like the answer should be obvious. But there it is, still a question. It is still a question because many of (us) still can be found trying to make 'them' comfortable. Clearly, we have no obligation to do this. And actually, there is no need. All the reasons...wait. I find myself getting exasperated at myself for trying to search for some rationale 'they' might use to explain why meeting their needs is the thing to do. Am I craazy????

Of course I expect MBM to follow up with a reply to the effect that "I am right" that Black people are savages or thugs or something foolish such as this. To the people of Washington DC who have defended Marion Barry, seeing him as a victim of a conspiracy by Whites who don't want him in power, working on behalf of the poor in DC this must be tantamount to Rosa Parks getting robbed in her home despite asking the thug "Do you know who I am" and he not caring .

So...will things change as a result of your strategy....which is: 1) Blame everything on black liberals 2) Ignore incidents of police brutality and racism against blacks 3) Lobbying to increase the number of blacks who don't vote democratic. 4) Ignoring that the present is the summation and creation of the past. 5) being an UNCLE TOM or a white man pretending to be black how does that strategy HELP?

From all the back and forth that we – black men and women – do, it would appear that can be said for both sides.

Very reasonable expression! Actually about the "saftey net" thing, one of my cousins is also an atheist, but he believes in reincarnation or subconsciousness (he believes that people either either reincarnate or that after death, people remain in a dream-like subconscious state). It's kind of unusual for an atheist to believe in afterlife, but oh well. *shrugs*

I am a weak atheist and an agnostic (no, they're no mutually exclusive), but I practice taoist philosophy.

Rather, it opens the possibility of the individual creating their own purpose, if they so chose.
