quote:Frankly, I don't have a list, JWC.
JWC: I gave you the first item on my list. I doubt that my list and your list are the same, but you imply that is BS.
I don't even share your view about BLACK PEOPLE BEING THEIR OWN WORST ENEMIES. That should be clear. For me to have a list that falls under that heading, I would have to agree with that presumption. I don't.
What confused you about that?
FOR THE RECORD:
The BS of yours I'm talking about is not your list but your usual, IMO, tactic to avoid explaining your position.
IMO, I don't know:
WHAT'S THE POINT IN HAVING A POSITION IF YOU CANNOT AND WILL NOT EXPLAIN IT AND DEFEND IT IF NECESSARY.
quote:Okay, if I can convey this as nicely as you want me to, could you please give a complete list and/or address the more pressing question of how those items (even just on the TWO you listed) are indicative of your thesis... (which I don't agree with)?
"Running" was to indicate there are more items on the list.
"BLACK PEOPLE ARE THEIR OWN WORST ENEMIES"
Please? Thank you.
quote:Frankly... I'm at a complete loss for what you feel "ADDRESSING" your item(s) mean... I think the following was me addressing those items. If not DEFINE, DESCRIBE... tell me what "addressing" your items entails. Please.
You fail/refuse to directly address the first item.
Voting Rights Act
- What? Are there African-Americans in favor of repealing it? HUH?
... I mean you say we're "our own worst enemies" that implies that we are 'working DIRECTLY against our own interest'. You can show me how I might be wrong in deducing that... Also, DEMONSTRATE how that is so on this issue...
[I.E. - How are we working directly against our own interest on the Voting Rights Act issue?]
 "BEING BLACK..."
Okay, to make it clear, I'm not going to make assumptions about what you mean and I'm definitely not going to draw conclusions that may or may not be what you intend. (READ: I can't and I won't read your freakin' mind. SPELL THE SH*T! OUT!)
How are we WORKING DIRECTLY AGAINST OURSELVES on that issue?
- RESOLUTION -
- the act or process of reducing to simpler form
- the act of analyzing a complex notion into simpler ones
- the act of answering : SOLVING
- the act of determining
- ADDRESS(ing) -
- dutiful and courteous attention [*paid to a subject]
- readiness and capability for dealing (as with a person or problem) skillfully and smoothly
You can show me how, against those definitions I have not "addressed" what you offered. I'm sure you can argue how "skillful, smooth, and courteous" I was but I think that's very subjective.
I would like for you to tell me how you have worked towards a "resolution", again, against the definitions above. You can also demonstrate how I was not, as well...
