    as regards to my arguments being "dishonest" ... and all the rest.

    I would have to disagree with many of your criticisms.

    And I didn't make it a pissing contest.  You were the one demanding "qualifications" to make statements - and then made assumptions about my education.

    I'd suggest you are taking this too personally - and spend most of your time on ad hominems.

    But I think we have gone through this enough.

      you have never answered any of my questions or interventions. i didn't make assumptions about your education, i wondered who trained you and how then could be making the claims that you were, given how poorly evidenced they are.

      this is personal because it is about the truth. when you misrepresent something as important as the constitution to folks you are trusted with teaching, it is personal and important. when we minimize the role of racial inequality in this country's history and government and society it is personal.

      much of the mess in this country now is caused by a failing educational system and a process wherein all opinions are elevated to fact, however specious. we have fools running for President who believe that America was founded as a Christian Nation because some hack historian told them so. This is very worrisome.

      your arguments are dishonest and intentionally overlook any of the strong counter arguments or evidence to the contrary.

      they are also poorly structured and reasoned--esp. in regards to the 3/5th clause and America as a racialized democracy.

      If you are a scholar as you pretend to be--note, never announce yourself as a scholar of anything, that is tacky and invites attack because most folks who are the real deal don't go around announcing it--go do some more reading and track down some of the books I suggested.

      I can give you an exam list if you like. It will be like doing your comps again.

      •  As I said - this is going nowhere. (0+ / 0-)

        Your arguments, actually, are unsound - and you simply ignore or read into my points what you want to be there.

        Let's just agree to disagree on this.  I am not going to post any further on this tangent.

        •  my arguments are fundamentally sound, easy one (0+ / 0-)

          simple question, one more softball for you,

          was Jim Crow an example of racialized democracy?

          easy one, even easier than was slavery a primary cause of the Civil War...
