FOR THE RECORD: JTEM is white dildos.
jtem would like black people to dump racism and join “the middle class world”. for the record.
Ironically YOU QUOTE ME talking about people in poverty — not “Black people” — and I explicitly state that dividing people along racial lines is stupid.
Thanks for confirming my point, nimrod.
Oh. Here’s what you quoted, in part:
There’s a lot of useful ways to divide people. The most useful division is by economics.
Divide people economically and you can help them. Healthcare, daycare, education… housing… job training… maybe even “Life Lessons,” how to get along in a middle class world… you can help them. You can identify what is keeping them down, what skills/opportunities they lack and you can help them.
Divide people by race and… um… well… no matter what you do they’ll always be the same race, they’ll always have the same skin color. Nothing ever changes.
Funny how you excised the paragraph explicitly calling out black people. You remember writing this:
And it can’t change, either. Black people, for example, are over represented in poverty, but they are by no means the majority of the impoverished. Most people in poverty aren’t black. So if you’re black and seek to raise black people out of poverty, even as you divide people along racial lines, you’re setting yourself AGAINST your natural allies. You’re taking what should be a large force of allies and turning them into rivals.
You know, where you imply that black people should ally themselves with white people for their own benefit. Racist as it gets.
Internet is forever, tho.
