    Tim Wise is just like his people. He profits from observing what is in demand. He is well aware that it is in hi demand for black people to hear white people telling the truth about white people. For Tim, running his mouth about white privledge is a Gig, it's all business.... He even calls what he does a Gig in some of the speeches he has delivered and the black people in the audience have no reaction to that, they still pay him to run his mouth. I would like to know what he spends black peoples money on, I am sure that his money is not being put towards justice for all, not even a small fraction of it.

    be that as it may.....

    it is not about tim wise or any other white man.
    it is about us. we are the ones who have to do the work of liberation.

    all white people practice white supremacy.....

    i really do not care what individual white people practice. that is a waste of time to me.
    discussion of what white people do or do not do and how they do it is a distraction.
    time spent focused on white people is better spent focusing on black people.


    when black people wake up, clean up and stand up, it does not matter what white people do.
    my focus is on black people.

    You and Kermudgeon247 are really on the same page, he really isn't suggesting anything that you don't agree with...

    ????

    This is almost like the discussions over the election of Obama. The conversation really starts to reflect our own impotence. As though anything Tim Wise says will change anything for the worse or for the better. Nothing is wrong with support Tim Wise or hating him. But there is something wrong with a lack of critical assessment of what "Black" folks are doing and what we are saying.

    Truth can come from a variety of sources. But when it comes to our issues, we had better be supplying that information about our community to our people. I had a conversation with a young man the other day about this very thing. Because his mother had made him sit down to watch "Roots" to learn about racism. I was trying to explain to him how much more complex racism/"White" supremacy is.

    He still doesn't get it. But his curiousity has been sparked.

    Monday, June 1st 2:30PM EASTERN/ 11:30AM PACIFIC

    The Admitted White Supremacist known as Tim Wise will share his views on the System of White Supremacy. We will ask Mr. Wise to speak with Victims of White Supremacy in an honest and frank manner. This will be a candid discussion on the ways in which Mr. Wise practices White Supremacy and will hopefully enlighten non-whites to the deceptive nature of White people who practice Racism/White Supremacy. (Even those who allege to be anti-racist).

    If Mr. Wise shows up... I suspect this will be a potent & legendary broadcast.
