Now you're just being obtuse for purely ideologically defensive reasons. Again, look up Othering......Youre avoiding my question. Can you answer it?"Seems"? "Appears"? Since when at those declarative statements?Ok which caveat in your post are you referring to?Are you stupid or just being obtuse? It wasn't in your post, it was in mine........What caveat did you select that was in my post?Well in many aspects you are nothing more than a rabble rouser but that one post contained an implied request by the use of the caveat I selected. Figured you were smart enough to figure that out.You didnt make a basic request of clarification you basically called me a rebel rouser without asking for clarification. If you spent more time actually debating facts instead of being butt hurt and claiming I was lying I would have some respect for you.Reading comprehension is not your strong suit, I said "it appears", It's a basic request for clarification, I never stated a definitive though I made a possible association based on the tact you seemed to be taking based on the apparent overarching statement you made about using the Bible to control slaves. If I was mistaken then you have my apologies, if not then it stands. Nothing is purely black and white.Now youre pulling what I call an essalla. Please show me where I claimed whites are still using the bible to enslave Blacks. I need the quotes. No I am not muslim.Yes, they tried. Didn't always work very well though. It appears you're claiming whites are still using the Bible to "enslave" blacks. Are you Muslim?Slave holders also used the bible to make the enslaved docile as well.Of course slaveholders used the Bible to justify slavery, I never argued that wasn't true. It's your flight of fancy when you diverged from that.Read an excerpt from 'The Great Stain: Witnessing American Slavery' by Noel Raetime.com
" Out of the more than three quarters of a million words in the Bible, Christian slaveholders—and, if asked, most slaveholders would have defined themselves as Christian—had two favorites texts, one from the beginning of the Old Testament and the other from the end of the New Testament. "
As for whether or not you respect me, when it comes to politics I could care less as I have as much respect for you in that realm as I do the white racists on this board. Which is to say none at all, I find you both so blinded by your respective biases that no respect is deserved.
As for the rest yes I did make declarative statements, statements I stand by from a purely socio-psychological point of view. Look up the Us vs Them Paradigm also called "Othering".
