    Your record precedes you here.  You know that I, and WR, and MB, and navajo, and cacamp, and Nulwee, and a few others are Indian.  And you come into our diaries and shit in them routinely - accepting only whitesplaining as any kind of evidence, rather than accepting anything an Indian has to say about his/her own experiences.  You pulled this same crap with MB two weeks ago.  You've done the same with Black Kossacks - and, yes, we know that you know the diarists are Black.  

    IOW, in diaries of POC, you are a troll.  You really should go find a better place to engage in your misbehavior.

    •  I don't care what color they are. (0+ / 0-)

      That's the point you routinely and repetitively miss.

      Their ideas matter.  Their skin color shouldn't.  When it's used as validation of their point, then I respond similarly with my particular validation on all sorts of issues.

      But I don't bring up skin color first.  Ever.  It's always folks like you who do that.

      •  I have not missed anything. (0+ / 0-)

        Whether you "bring it up" is irrelevant.  It's your behavior that makes your point for you.  And you do it over and over.  So, no, I haven't missed any point here.  You're just pretending that the point is not what it really is, which is your trolling of diaries that you very well know to be POC, about issues relevant to POC.  Don't imagine for a moment that we don't recognize this behavior - we deal with it every single day our entire lives, on- and offline, and we know it very well.

        I hope, for the future, you take some lessons from this and from the words of Markos himself, and stop coming into diaries of POC purely to be a dick.  I doubt it'll happen, though.

          And the truth about each situation is important.

          It's amazing that I would have to say that, and just as amazing that you'll probably disagree with me about it.
