  •  I was 18 (8+ / 0-)

    And I was 80% through a course -- the first of its kind, I think -- on black politics, reading Black Power: The Politics of Liberation. I don't remember what kind of an argument we were having in the dorm about it but I did a very bad job brokering it, since I was at that point a more radical black liberationist than the black student in the dorm, an engineering student from a relentlessly middle-class part of Long Island.

    I can't be sure my consciousness wasn't altered by something I consumed at the time we learned either. It was every bit as bad as you remember.

    -7.75, -8.10; Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
