Conversations After the great 5/15 Race Debate

This evening, I had conversations with two people who saw their Tweet feed erupt last night. One, @renois, came late to the exchange and was taken aback when ABL was not receptive to his input. The other was befuddled. I shared my previous story, and embarked on a conversation that, I hope, led to greater understanding on both sides

@AngryBlackLady @shadowsmomca that would be helpful. My Twitter feed exploded last night & I'm still confused as to what's going on.
Joe @JoeSoFla
@ShadowsMomCA @angryblacklady Thanks. Looks like I have some reading to do.
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA No worries but, out of curiosity how and in what context was I mentioned?
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA Appreciate the response. Don't know what Ms. Walsh said that was so offensive, can I get a cliff notes version?
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA My main point was that one these things in the grand scheme of the world's challenges are hot boiling distractions.
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA And as for ABL it is hard to take her positions seriously when she doesn't take herself, as proven by her antics, seriously.
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois I think you misinterpret her use of sarcasm and humor as an avenue to discuss difficult subjects as a lack of seriousness.
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois but we integrate our understanding of others intentions through individual and very personal filters
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA I could see that point were it not for her completely ignoring facts that are presented.
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois there is a chirpstory that is as complete as I could make it here: http://chirpstory.com/li/1451 One caveat may be incomplete
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA My issue with her is her denying the obvious, in that Obama is pursuing 'liberal' policies.
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois Yr entry to convo was near its end. I follow her, I know prev 4-5 day history of events, small undrstndng of why unreceptive
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois Are you saying you do not believe he is pursuing liberal policies? If so, I wld agree, as would ABL, I think. Pragmatic, best term
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA And for the record, one look at my twitter feed would tell you that I'm not stranger to humor and sarcasm. lol
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA I would strongly disagree that it's pragmatic. I would argue, with ample evidence in support, that this is who he is.
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois Be sure to read the originating post. Zaid Jilani was out of line. If he had read beyond title, perhaps a different outcome
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois Obama never campaigned as liberal. Also, he entered under horrific conditions,and has faced GOP focused on blocking all efforts
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA Although it is true that Obama has been misrepresented as a liberal, he has gone against countless campaign promises...
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA regarding civil liberties, the national security state, war and the rule of law
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois Here you go: http://goo.gl/fdmAI My vote-listen if POC tells me I have said/done something that implicitly/explicitly marginalizes
Manhattanmania @Renois
@ShadowsMomCA Can't buy the GOP blocking argument. If Dems can't get things done with the majorities they had in the house n sen, then when?
kdpca @ShadowsMomCA
@Renois House did get things done. Sen did had a majority but not one that could prevent filibuster, if can't end debate, can't vote
