That is a helpful post. It crystallizes your objection


This is just an observation - it may be incorrect:

I've read a lot of CUKev's posts. It is my speculation that he believes a lot of social troubles being discussed are not also considering troubles he sees of personal responsibility.

My natural bent is compassion as the fruit of my own life has been messy in places. I see Kev as saying the conversation of systemic racism is incomplete without talking about the well-known problems.

I've read posts where he unsolicited communicated racism repulses him. I find that sincere. If he was a cracker, I'd disassociate with him.

You do make important points that Black America started way behind the right ball due to white/White America. It was inhumane and evil to the core. There is unquestionably overt and subtle racism thriving today, no matter how many Black Americans have become successful (and still experience racism, fear and pain).

Do we "cancel" CUKev or throw the baby out with the bathwater? Or do we choose to engage intelligently and respectfully with each other to tell our stories, inform and find common ground from which to work.

Cswilliam, you're an educated person who has skill in communicating. I'm sure Kev would engage with you to learn more and be receptive to seeing what you see he's missing and empathize with your points if you'd be receptive to considering what he sees and feels too.
