perhaps dumb wasn't strong enough language. Your response that instead
of focusing on structural flaws and racism in this community that
rather those fighting oppression in this community should pick up shop
and take it to the local penitentiary is...non-sequitir at best and
probably more precisely, is patronizing, trivializing, and ridiculous.
While indeed there are a litany of reasons and statistics to show the
discrimination that founds our legal and correctional systems (all of
which i believe are true), this does not deny the flaws in this
community nor does it denote that those struggling against those flaws
are wrong. We as privileged members of this community should still
realize the exclusions around us, and consciously make attempts to stop
them. None of this is to deny the cyclical oppression of our
correctional systems. We can and should still use our positions to make
alterations in this activity.
even if you believe i sound like a novice, your assessment of what to
do in this social location of the debate community makes you sound like
an ass. I'm sure your heart is in a better place than that.
still, in awe,
