.@AngryBlackLady you have to agree with West and Smiley if you have Blah in your name, right? @bescofield

.@bescofield well why didn't you tell me that Corny likes Paul??? THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING. #noitdoesnt

@bescofield What's the point of quoting West to @AngryBlackLady ? Have I missed something?
Be Scofield @bescofield
@AngryBlackLady The point is many people have praised some of Paul's policies. Doesn't mean they support white overthrow of state.
Be Scofield @bescofield
@jhw2212 The point is many people have praised some of Paul's policies. Doesn't mean they support racism, white power or will vote for Paul
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield But why did you bring up West, specifically? You may as well have brought up Greenwald to ABL.
Be Scofield @bescofield
@jhw2212 I brought up West to several people on twitter to show that u can praise Paul and not be a white supremacist.
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield It would be a stronger argument if you found a non-white supremacist who hasn't been an Obama-basher and still praises Paul.
Imani Gandy @AngryBlackLady
.@bescofield what?! did I miss something? are you having an argument with yourself?
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield Using West to prove a point about Paul to ABL, or any Obama supporter, is just a poor choice. Soured example.
Be Scofield @bescofield
@jhw2212 Cornel West supports Obama's reelection, but yes criticizes him too, like we all should.

RT Corney must love David Duke, as well. @bescofield: @AngryBlackLady CornelWest on R.Paul "I do like his critique of American Empire"
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield Show me where West is endorsing Obama for 2012. Perhaps you aren't aware of the work @Angryblacklady has done on West.
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield Criticism should be thorough and fair. Otherwise, intent is questionable and unproductive.
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield What are your criticims of Paul? Of Greenwald? Just curious.
Be Scofield @bescofield
@jhw2212 @Angryblacklady West says his support for Obama here in the first few minutes of this: http://t.co/omAy7CJm

.@bescofield @jhw2212 you’re out of your skull if you think i’m going to watch a clip of west on hannity. #nothankyou
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield @Angryblacklady West has said many things about if he'll vote for Obama or a 3rd party. Smart enough not to say dif on Fox.
Jennifer @jhw2212
@bescofield @Angryblacklady I'd hardly say "neoliberal tied to oligarchs" is "support". Nor, is it criticism. He's playing a game.

I see where Be pressed Shoq for an answer to his question, yet he never answered mine as to his criticisms of Greenwald. Surely I don't need to give specific topics for him to find SOMETHING to be critical... right?

Don't be fooled by the black panther avi. News flash: @Shoq is white, too. Stop pandering.

"I love it when white people tell me what racism is." GTFO @Shoq

What does it matter that Shoq is white? The point of the matter is that he admits he's never had to deal with racism, and therefore fully cannot understand it. I, too, think it's hilarious when white people expound upon what the true nature of racism is.

white people think they can tell black people what is racist, & tell us what is the appropriate responses to their defn. of racism. And the privileged white people in the Dem party define,prioritize and direct the agenda of the Dem party.
