  •  I've seen a lot of the defensive posturing you're (0+ / 0-)

    talking about.  It shows up most of the time in the diaries that discuss privilege.   I don't dispute that it exists on this site.  Of course it does.

    But that is not what I'm seeing in the particular proposal discussed here.

      I was referring other users of the site.

      I don't remember enough interactions to pass judgment

      Where I have seen this defensive posturing is actually in the context of the Zimmerman case where people will hide behind legal issues and say what they think the law is while ignoring the racism that's occurring in the application of the law

      Its the PiLi , which I will never forget as a warning that even on a site like this "this is how structural racism works", statement that Juror B37's comments about why she voted the way she did doesn't matter because the decision is final.
