107. And as a response

I wanted to respond quickly so as to stop your "well the internet has lots of information" personal attack.


Interesting that you completely internalized the "internet search" remark that I made and boomeranged it onto yourself... Despite the fact that what I was actually referencing was to myself, just this morning, finding and saving PDFs of pages from the General Catalogue of Atlanta University, Atlanta, Georgia: 1867-1918, where I realized that not only did they list my great-grandparents, but my grandfather AND his older sisters (which I had missed the first time I found this about a year ago). This book lists students/graduates from the indicated era and even included birth dates, marriage dates, and occupations (not unlike my alma mater's alumni publications).

First, Effie stated that her mother attended a school where US Marshals had to intervene. What was going on elsewhere in the country doesn't "tell" anything/


You trivialize. My mother sat on a trolley or subway here in Philly in 1944 where National Guard were on the public transit because the transit system went on strike when they refused to allow black drivers, and were thus forced to hire them, and both the drivers and passengers needed protection.

Second, unless you are seriously claiming that all black males were drafted into service during WWII, your next point is stupid and insulting. "Tell" fail Number 2


See this. By 1943, they were drafting up to 200,000 men a month. A significant ratcheting up that snatched my father right out of college. This is why one hears about so many WW2 vets (and so many casualties), because they were drafting some 20% of the eligible male population, generally only allowing those to remain stateside if they were in critical positions. One of the issues regarding the above that I cite about the transit strike here in Philly, was that because of the significance of that draft, there were few men left to operate the various transit vehicles and thus force the authority to permit black drivers (most who were beyond WW2 draft age) to supplement the dwindled number of white drivers.

Third, you are confusing subjects taught with degrees conferred AND nothing you or I said detracts from the accomplishments of Effie's family or of the reality of the benefits they (righteously) imparted.


WTF? You came up with this thing about HBCUs mainly giving degrees "in divinity" in the 1800s and didn't change that until "the turn of the century". I just showed to you how that was bullshit. My great-grandparents were not "conferred a degree" in "Divinity" from Atlanta U in 1883 and 1884.

Fourth, as I have stated before, Sanders style socialism is a farce when it comes to racial justice. Marxism, as a key component of the black liberation movement when I grew up, is a tool to repay $60 trillion and, as I said, no one is talking about that.


If you are a Marxist-Socialist, then just say it. Then people will be able to intelligently discuss things with you knowing where you are coming from. Otherwise you operate in a nefarious way attempting to normalize a school of thought as if it were universal.

Finally, I'm sorry you choose idolatry over reality.


Not sure what you are referencing?
