he was talking about playing devil's advocate like the conversation desperately needs to include white supremacist talking points. it's just a strategy to dump that poo in this topic without getting banned lol
These councils and committees are nothing but attempts to make the people quiet down just long enough for the entire discussion to just go away. This and the symbolic gestures like the BLM paintings on the streets, flag removals, taking down monuments, etc.
Not having to see that flag or those monuments is cool, but where is the policy?
just to add to this since Asheville was brought up
this community took a major step back black community-wise in the past week. anybody that knows anything about this towns history knows that Eagle Street and that whole 'neighborhood' of downtown was the mostly black owned part of town. the city has been taking a dump on that area for decades, focusing on other areas over it, but the YMI cultural center and the block off biltmore were huge leaders in preserving the history
unfortunately, due to covid, the block closed this past week and i'm scared of what will move in there. the foundry is a beautiful boutique hotel that popped up in the area, and benne is one of the best restaurants in the country with a young, african american rising star in the culinary world, but the apartments down the road show signs that money is now willing to infiltrate and finish the erasing of the past of that part of town
it's a major bummer
