The problem with racists is that there hatred and pompous attitudes cloud their comprehension. Slavery is nothing new, but the european and american institution of slavery was more intense. Slaves before this time were what you would call indentured servants or prisoners of war. American chattel slavery literally transformed one into property, three-fifths of a human being. It tore people from there families and tortured them sexually, physically and mentally. No other account of slavery was that diabolical. #facts

The notion that people of color can be racist is laughable. The real racist would like people of color to internalize and believe this so they have reason to continue their racist activities. What can and have white done and are doing to marginalize people of color as a whole? What can people of color do to marginalize white as a whole. I'll wait... True racism is about power and control. The ability to dominate a people's reality as a whole. At best people of color can display ignorance towards the racism that they face. Which is like throwing a rock at a Sherman tank.

I can't know if Elaine Brown was an FBI informant as it likely none of you KNOW. Belief is not knowledge. Surely if she was somebody can find out making a FOIA request and find the documentation. Otherwise I'll consider it bad jacketing(1). I certainly can't believe any thing David Horowitz (2) says. Ms. Brown has been villified since I can remember, when questioned about their information empirical evidence is lacking. People often spread rumors as knowledge when it is belief. You need only study what people believe and why to find how fallible belief and memory is. I was born in Oakland and was a teen when Elaine was active in Oakland politics. If someone knows she was an informant or instrumental in killing of the Panther's bookkeeper at the very least there apathy is a sell out to the black community more than misdeeds she's alleged to have committed. An articulate (3) allegation is necessary. NEVER have I heard a rumor that was entirely true... do remember the parlor game, Telephone (4). People get shit bassackwards all the time, why there are websites such as Snopes (5). ...I attempted to paste links as references for whatever reason my copy/paste is not working: What I think are thoughtful definition of "bad jacketing," and a bio of David Horowitz can be found on Wikipedia. Noam Chomsky also has some interesting things to say about Horowitz. Wikipedia has good information on the murder of Betty Van Patter as well you can find various descriptions of the parlor game "telephone." Here on YouTube will find on the limitations of memory (I'm being kind)... one reason why so many people are incarcerated even when innocent.

Concerning the payment of fees in US-universities! I'm from a european country & I studied at one of the best public german universities, & I had to pay fees. It wasn't much, but one had to pay, alright! There is no such thing as studying for free in Europe. But the fees are incomparably lower than in the U.S., or in Britain! Interestingly, private universities - besides few exceptions - are not well regarded over here. On the contrary: private universities are considered to be dubious! Concerning the issue of reparations: how much would the total amount be?  By the way: the taxes we pay in Europe are incomparably higher, than those paid in the U.S.! Raise the taxes in the U.S. & You'll get universities for (nearly) free!
