    Why would I search your past posts in other threads when the question I posed to you was asked here for the very first time last night in #58?

    all it takes is one direct answer to one direct question...... and why would you criticize me for asking the question and insisting on an answer rather than criticize EB for refusing to answer it? Perhaps because you are both on the right side of the political continuum?

    Oh please, you ask the same idiotic questions over, and over, and over. They've all been answered a million times. Nothing new here.

    Feel free to link to me asking that same question that I did for the first time last night in post 58. Of course, you will NOT since I just asked to to EB last night.

The less injustice in traditionally impoverished communities means even less injustice in the traditionally wealthy communities. (Because obviously, if Jamal or Ruben have less incentive to steal from Mr. Smith, then obviously Mr. Smith is better off). In the end (and this can be hard to stomach for a lot of social leftists), if a minority gets a pay raise hypothetically speaking then a non minority likely got three pay raises hypothetically speaking. Obviously that's a "good thing" for the non minority just as much as it is for the minority.

    No one is beneath or above me.....just sayin.
