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.
