quote:"Asking for help" means we want somebody [government and businesses]... to geniunely handle the task of making us a better citizen.
I think you need to revert to your "politics [i.e. YOUR opinion] isn't logical" thing again. Because now, instead of talking about the Ogletree Lawyers, Inc. overseeing Reparations you've now said, flatly, it's the US gov't, etc. who are being asked to "make us better citizens"??
In the mainstream media, in [Black] Academia, in the world bodies (the UN WCAR, etc.), and even among those local community organizations with very few people composing those meeting around the issue of Reparations... WHERE is the call for US gov't and business to "make Black people better citizens."???
WHERE do you get this BS from?
I asked you how is it you equate Reparations to "asking for help." You have asserted that Reparations = "asking for help." I beg to differ from your characterization. Why you characterize Reparations in that way, I don't understand. So I'm asking you why. WHY DO YOU SEE IT THAT WAY?quote:So why do we have to ask for their help when their mode of operation has been to the contrary.
I don't accept your term. That was clear from the start. You cannot answer/address my question by continuing to use that unacceptable term. You have to establish how it is valid. You have not done so. So, to the extent that you see Reparations as "asking for help" then we know you have even more issues as to why you can't explain why you choose to characterize Reparations in that way.
What the gov't, etc. is inclined to do, in your opinion, is not the question. The question is why do you characterize Reparations and, by extention, advocates for Reparations in the disparaging manner you have.
I don't give a fuck what you're "depressed" by. I asked you why you say the things you do out your mouth. All this talk about what the gov't did or has done, etc., etc., etc. provides no cover for what comes out YOUR mouth.quote:We are again in waiting mode which for me is quite depressing.
Why do you equate advocating for Reparations to "asking for help"???
That's a simple question. You said it. You made the statement. You made the claim. You overburdened it with some BS about "waiting" (which ISOME challenged) and your little weak emotional rhetoric about it certain aspects being "disturbing" or "depressing."
At no point have you said why you called advocating for Reparations as something that amounts to "asking for help." WHY IS THAT??
Are you telling that you purposely said something you know is not the truth and that you purposely tried to mischaracterize the call/demand for Reparations to lend support of your position? Or are you telling me you're not smart enough to explain your own positon?
