Excellent post, ManicPro.....I'm willing to bet nary a Conservative posting here will read the book....


Nope, doubt that hardly any Conservatives would read it and perhaps a minority of others would. It's an interesting and informative read.


Where did you acquire your copy of, "Color of Law and the New Jim Crow"??


Anyone truly believing that I was referring to "Color of Law and the new Jim Crow" has very compromised reading comprehension skills, like many trump supporters.

 

One of the books is The Color of Law.  The other book is The New Jim Crow.  I hope this helps you. Have you read either? If you haven't it kind of proves my point.


The initial post had it as all one title and you praised "it". So, have you read both??


You didn't answer my question but expect me to answer yours. Some things never change. Actually I have read both but I was referring to The Color of Law.  Have you read either one?


I have read neither and wonder why someone would chose them to read out of the blue. I did read the offered excerpts and saw the direction. And, as previously posted, anything involving Cornel West can be no more than hate filled, racist trash.


Wow, there's someone who is obviously tolerant of a differing opinion in typical Conservative style.

Yes, I'm sure many are aware.  How can we miss?  It's difficult to miss, indeed.

 


Never surrender, never give up?  So much for civil discussion.  Just following the lead of the Christians..... Been to Rose Hill lately? Yes, just two weeks ago.  Looking for another vacation?

What does bringing in Christian Values have to do with these topics?  Based on your responses over the last several days, apparently the absence of Christian Values is EVERYTHING.  Could we ask if a person, not mentioning names, has any Christian Values from the tone of his posts?  How many times must you ask?  It's been answered several times, so why ask again?  Yet, you STILL haven't answered the very first question.....where have our Christian Values gone?  What would someone like that know of Christian Values?  Obviously far more than those who avoid answering the question, "Where have are Christian Values gone?  It's not an offensive question..... Why is that continually brought up basically taking threads off-topic?  Actually, this topic reflects the lack of Christian Values...instead of just attack another poster, why not answer the question......

White guilt is a product of liberalism

White pride is a product of conservatism, and they practice it every time they're okay with an ethnic group being mistreated, simply because they belong to an ethnic group.

 

So true, Big!  White fragility exudes from many of the Conservatives posting here.

Is it civil to attack someone because they changed their political opinion?  And continued (sic) to do so ?  Apparently, to some, "civil discussion" is defined as ignoring all questions asked and only asking baiting questions in return.
