Assuming you are white, you and me (fellow white person here) are not entitled to any encouragement…

Please read what I wrote again, and if you need more context, you’ll find it in my other recent posts to Medium. I don’t think I’m entitled to a damn thing from LeslieMac or anybody else, except on the same basis that we’re all entitled to our universal human rights and to the terms of the American social compact. And I’m not challenging anyone’s statistics without data from a reputable source; what I wrote wasn’t meant as a contradiction, but as general agreement with a subjective attempt at nuance, which I hope is not unwelcome, but which I will humbly abandon if it is. I don’t think that the median Red is any more racist than I am. Thanks for the opportunity to clarify, and I honor your efforts to be part of the solution.
