Actually, I would like for you to mention a single time I have denied the 
racial problem in the USA?

You are the one inventing strawmen, not me. As a matter of fact, I thought 
we were disucssing not the racial problems in the USA, but the inability of 
the left to mobilize a movement against war.

I am sorry, but inspite of your protestations, it is you who creates 
strawmen and false dichotomies. As a matter of fact your dichotomies are so 
false, I actually agree with a lot of what you bring up in terms of race 
relations in the USA.

In what we differ, or what I thought we differed, was in how this translated 
into political practice. Yet you don't mention any of this.
