You continue to twist things to suit your narrative.Kriterion_BD wrote: ↑Sat Nov 20, 2021 6:37 amThey rightfully refused, because they were owed "40 acres and a mule" as reparations, which most to this day haven't gotten. After that, you can debate whether they are better off here or in Africa.
My comprehension is fine, I'm reading exactly what you wrote. The problem is you've posted certain talking points, and that particular political leaning is perceived to be inversely proportional (with extremely rare exceptions of course) to intellectual capacity. You confused privilege for wealth. Then you conflated voluntarily leaving one's native country to being enslaved.
This thread started off about Yorkshire CC and more generally the situation in England...here's a great illustration. Maajed Nawaz is by all accounts a centrist type of guy. He has a lot of right-wing positions (eg believes Muslims should be profiled, is an anti-masker and probably an anti-vaxxer as well). Yet here he is confronted by an Englishman who doesn't believe he belongs in the UK:
Nobody hangs around for 300 years to claim their 40 acres and a mule They stayed because they knew exactly what they were heading back to.
How do you possibly perceive my talking points to be right wing? I'm just stating facts. There are extraordinarily stupid people on both ends of the political spectrum.
If you don't think wealth buys you a level of privelege you're sorely mistaken.
I listened to Majeed, super smart and patient guy under-selling himself by having an unnecessary conversation with a moron, what's your point here? It's a typical left wing trick- pick an idiot to debate and then assume said idiot is representative of all people you are prejudiced against to prove whatever point you're trying to make. He's not using it, you are. If you want to talk about intellectual capacity being inversely proportional to your political affiliation you're shooting yourself in the foot.
