  •  and you are being dishonest as well (0+ / 0-)

    we have done this many times. i am frustrated at myself for dealing with your trollish behavior. my hope is that someone will see this, who may be ignorant about white supremacy, and learn about its modern variety by reading your responses.

    Whiteness does not equal all white people; masculinity does not equal all men. Given your supposed deep reading on these topics you would understand that. Social systems are not necessarily comments about individual level behavior. They are however, comments about the aggregated level behavior of individuals.

    Again, are white people subjected to racism? Are you a white victimologist?

    •  I agree with all you just said here (0+ / 0-)

      Truly.  I honestly agree that racists institutions, processes and cultural ideas are ubiquitous and exact a terrible toll in our society and are profoundly unjust.   This is all correct and not controversial

      The point I am trying to make so poorly then comes from the question of how does an individual respond to that?  What is the best and most appropriate response to these facts?  

      I am sorry I have frustrated you

      It is only know that I finally figured out what, precisely, my objection is to, which is why it has been soo befuddled up to now.
