I do hear both you and Toni. My criticism of people wherever they come from and whoever they are - like my praise and respect - can sometimes take-on aspects that can bring images to mind that may be construed in a poor light. My apologies - I did think about that phrase, and like black Republicans who should know they are being used (or do and don’t care) is infuriating.
There have always been people who sell-out their brothers and sisters to serve the bosses who deserve nothing but contempt. My writing here at CD on race (and gender) issues and politics among other issues, I hope shows my intentions and heart, regardless a perhaps thoughtless phrase once in a while when I lose it - I am not perfect. Thank you both ReconFire and Toni!
