    We (or at least, I) don't diminish your ability to think for yourself.

    I just criticize you because you're using that ability to pursue policies of greed that disenfranchise hoards of people. Specifically, policies that have a disproportionally detrimental effect on people of color.

    You don't "have" to think any way. I don't think you're simple. I think your political mentality displays a depraved separation from the reality of the world, and it evidences the worst possible elements of "I got mine, so screw you" mentality.

    This makes no mention of the fact that you're allowing yourself to be used by many people who only accept you as their equal because your professional success has "unblackened" you in their eyes. The perfect example of how very racist white people rationalize accepting a black person into their social sphere: he might as well be white!

    Also, fuck you.
