"She BIN had dat han'-made dress" (SE: She's had that hand-made dress for a long time, and still does.)

It's actually unintelligible

I have a bit of experience with it; my mother was a teacher in an inner-city school and had a class full of third graders that had been held back at least twice

Asking for an axe emoji

2018-03-20 00:55:07 UTC

i am referring to the linguistic gap between modern blacks and blacks from the 60's or whateevr

2018-03-20 01:32:10 UTC  

Can someone post the link to the paper with the black children of the 1%?

2018-03-20 01:51:13 UTC  

@Why Tea Thank god!

2018-03-20 02:06:11 UTC  

That's horrific.

2018-03-20 11:40:32 UTC  

@Jacob just to be clear we are supposed to read up to "Of Means and Ends" or through it?

2018-03-20 19:19:16 UTC  

Through

I started reading the book last night, I'm only 20 pages in but did anyone else crack up at the judge and lawyer story?

2018-03-21 18:18:58 UTC  

"Fuck you, Campbell."

2018-03-21 18:37:29 UTC  

@shekelsworth I didn’t understand that all that well

2018-03-21 18:39:48 UTC  

Sounds like the lawyers got shut down

2018-03-21 18:58:38 UTC  

Well he was making a point about how they failed to make change through their actions.

2018-03-21 18:58:46 UTC  

They shoah'd themselves

2018-03-21 19:27:59 UTC  

I can already tell this book is going to be fantastic for what we're dealing with today. I'm not even through the prologue, and already the author has addressed the importance of optics and distancing ourselves from "self stereotype people", aka the alt right and it's LARPers. "

2018-03-21 19:36:46 UTC  

Idk his beliefs are founded on equality, justice, etc and so it seems his layout for revolution might not be achievable without this.

2018-03-21 19:37:10 UTC  

Democracy is the means and not necessarily the ends, is something he eventually says.

2018-03-21 19:38:44 UTC  

And the goal for revolution should be the quality for all. So I don't know if he believes revolutions could be achieved for the your own group.

2018-03-21 19:39:10 UTC  

He's a socialist and that's what he sees as the ideal world. He has good points like the separation of ideology and dogma.

2018-03-21 19:40:27 UTC  

I don't know though I could be reading this very incorrectly.

2018-03-21 19:43:29 UTC  

@shekelsworth he's a far leftist and probably a commie. When I bought this book, books that were "frequently bought" with it was the Communist Manifesto. I shit you not.

2018-03-21 19:44:19 UTC  

We need to use the methods that Marxists have used to become successful. That's why this book is a great read for any activist honestly.

2018-03-21 19:45:06 UTC  

Yeah I guess I just need to get more the methodology.

2018-03-21 19:45:16 UTC  

He's laying out his commie beliefs right now

2018-03-21 19:45:30 UTC  

Haha oh boy.

@shekelsworth *insert Soviet anthem"

2018-03-21 19:51:20 UTC  

Yeah, we have to ignore his personal beliefs and opinions and learn from his methods.

2018-03-21 19:54:20 UTC  

I guess we could stop reading once he's gets to "argue(ing) that the failure to use power for more equitable distribution of the means of life for all people signals the end of the revolution in the start of the counter-revolution." 😂😂😂

2018-03-21 19:56:32 UTC  

Hahaha yes just glance over that section.

2018-03-21 21:08:41 UTC  

I wrote up a draft of an article I was going to submit for the Identitarian, it's about 1500 words. Anyone willing to take a look at it and tell me what they think?
