More Words


 Hello. How are you? Do you happen to be interested in stuff Cornel West is talking about. I happened to have met him when I was myself a philosophy student. I read a number of his BOOKS, and wrote a review of one of them. In DEMOCRACY MATTERS he talks about the prophetic tradition, especially in terms of AA religion and of progressive movements.. While I don't always agree with him I think the brother is pretty sharp. -Savant


 The fact that you haven't heard the word bourgeois used (and probably don't know what it means) is itself revealing. And it means you're not in a position to debate me or other informed person on any political or social issue. From my examination of the history, it is clear to me that the decline of the Movement, and the current crisis in the Black Community, is due not only to COINTELPRO (research it, d____) but also the treachery and betrayal of the Black bourgeoisie. Dr. King was right: The bourgeois--white, black and brown--behave pretty much the same way all over the world. And that probably includes you.

That's not what you ORIGINALLY said, but you are entitled to revise your jibberish. When discussing the realities of a bourgeois capitalist society it is expected that one might use the word "bourgeois " quite often. Since America is also a racist and patriarchal society, you will often hear well informed people speak of race, racism and patriarchy. In another society the socially conscious might speak of fascism (e.g. in Franco's Spain, Nazi Germany). Of course, for those who are detached from social reality words describing that reality sounds strange. But unlike you some of us actually STUDY and have risen well above the level of Maury Povich and YouTube Institute. -Savant
