Brother Ali vs. White Racism part 16 (and another side note)


This was a response to annother person who was following the thread”

“To be honest, i am not too optimistic Sam will change (Noxious is too far gone [Noxious was one of those vicious sort of white racist throwing around epithets). That “white (racist) thing” is like rabies–once it gets rooted in a person’s system, it is almost impossible to get it out. Nonetheless, i hope for the best, and i don’t think the info will harm him (unless Sam just out right snaps and decides to go ballistsic, which i don’t think will happen).

Like i said, i believe these kind of threads help make me sharper. These posts help me to organize my thoughts for lecturing and be prepared for a face-to-face debate. As Francis Bacon said: “Conference makes a ready man.” I have had to review things that i read back in college in the area of “Afrocentria.” I try to find honest critiques or even scathing racist criticism of those things i read years ago. (The reviews on Amazon i find useful.) I try to examine some of the weaknesses and pitfalls in the arguments of the Afrocentrists (and obviously, the Eurocentrists). I try to keep an open mind. I am interested in Truth.

Lastly, other than the person i am responding to may benefit. Poetic said she finds it useful. That’s appreciated. I hope that some people can see that one can respond intelligently to white racism without swinging to the other extreme of becoming a black racist. I went thru a phase for a short time like that (the straw that broke the camel’s back and converted me briefly to black racism back in college was seeing a video about Leopold in the Belgian Congo). I didn’t stay stuck on stupid. One has to admit that the ultimate distinguishing factor between people is one of character. There are rotten people of every race and ethnicity. The potential for the wicked or the great is in all of us. It’s simply about the choices we make.”
