I tried to reply to SJ at “his email address”:
I read your comments…minimizing whites is fashionable in some circles,way to pile on and be a part of the problem.You have contributed nothing positive and simply piled on with the other folks who refuse to grow,because it can be painful and takes effort,like anything worthwhile.
What you do takes much less effort,and there are tons of people already doing what you are trying to do,and it is failing…some call it bigotry.
I didn’t say racist because we are all one race:human. And I didn’t call you a bigot because well…we all have some growing up to do. When I see someone like you living a tired old victim script it makes me hope you read a book or two and elevate your consciousness past the point of proliferating the hate,which only serves avoiding growth and getting gladhanded by peers who are part of the Crab Bucket of Negativity.

It is up to you…we ALL describe our lives any way we want. And THAT my friend,is true power. Try using your pulpit for something more outside the box,and contribute something instead of cashing in on and encouraging hate Your rhetoric is hardly original or compelling,and you sir are overpaid.
