I just want to say that although you and I differ on our opinions. I take pride in being open minded and not only listening but absorbing and even trying to understand the opinions of those that differ from myself. I do consider the backgrounds our those people with different opinions and I attempt to put myself in their shoes, so to speak, when listening and try to understand them. I want to point out that when I say I attempt to put myself in their shoes I mean mentally I consider everything I know of the person not only their race but their experiences, age, gender, and anything else that I know able them, at the same time I acknowledge the I am not them and can never fully understand exactly where they are coming from because I didnt walk see hear or experience the things that contributed to them becoming who they are. Anyway I what to thank you for voicing yourself and speaking your mind. Furthermore I would like to thank you specifically for a video you posted of the RMHRC I which you made it known that that was a meeting open to the public. I honestly am just starting to take interest in expanding my knowledge and participation of local government and community activism. somewhere I saw you say you were in your late 50’s and that you’ve been actively participating in meetings and other community dealings for over 20 years so I feel as though you may have been about my age when this became a passion of yours. I know you know alot have seen alot and hell probably done alot and honestly I feel that you could teach me alot. I feel that a vast majority of people everywhere not just locally only research and actually try to understand points of views, policies, and facts that agree with their own ideas and ideals. In my opinion this limits their ability to make change or at least make justified and fair change that considers all walks of life. With all th his said I invite you to share, no change that, I’m asking you to help me to gain a knowledge and understanding of local things I can participate or even just listen in on (like the HRC meetings and the committee as a whole meets) when are these meetings were are they? but not just limited to that any community functions and assemblies(like I said my relatively new to this and what what understand you are very experienced) But not just that I also ask that you share you view and knowledge of goings on that I can not get without speaking with someone with your experiences. I also want to have debates and such with you (because most people who debate with me end up quitting or giving up never really revealing why they feel like they do or not justifying their beliefs, and from seeing some of your post that have created smoke the people who oppose you just end up blocking you or dropping out of the actual subject matter. Anyway I see that you are a man that stands up for what HE believes in and typically back up you opinions with facts you have gathered through you own research I admire that and even though we differ I think we agree on the need for facts and I wanna hear what you got to say even if i dont l like it
You can now call each other and see information like Active Status and when you’ve read messages.
ME: Thank you. What do you consider a debate? An example please.
Send me another Friend Request.
I’m sure at some point we will have a debate as I feel that I am almost as passionate about my opinions and you are about you when it inevitably happens we will disagree you as per reading some of your previous post will state your opinion
Or I will state mine and you will challenge it with yours
Then the real fun starts with we challenge each other to bring forth truths that support over sides
But honestly to me I really dont think there will be any winners or losers for that matter I think that you will bring up points that I didnt know about and like wise hopefully I will put forth truths that you hadn’t heard before or know about
That way we both gain a knowledge of the other hopefully I feel that I’m good at representing my opinion base one truths
I know this though its gonna be hard to catch me in codes and stuff because I try my best and dont use codes and like you I love to repeat something some said right back to them
ME: Again I am going to ask you what do you consider a debate? An example please. What I ain’t going to do is waste my time on b.s. and you are starting out not answering my question which is not debatable? How in the hell did you post all of that and I asked you a simple question. I ain’t got time for what you feel and what you think I feel. Again I am going to ask you what do you consider a debate? An example please.
Let me go and find something one give me a second
ME: Wow! You ought to have something already in mind since you are so passionate about all that you just stated.
Well alot of the things you post I see exactly where you are coming from and if I were in your shoes I would agree with you
Like I guess Knight do I think he is a good councilman I dont think so honestly however I acknowledge that for his ward he is doing exactly what he was elected to do
I do also think he has a self serving agenda as did pretty much everyone before him is it not no but as to whether or not he should keep his job unless he has undeniably broken a law which I dont see where he has then he should kee ppl his job just as long as the people keep voting him in
ME: What do you mean in my shoes? You believing Knight is not a good councilman is not up for debate for me because that is your opinion. I base my opinions on facts. That is too ignant he is doing what he was elected to do. What is that? That let me know that you have no clue about how politics work. You say he has a self serving agenda? That is not up for debate because that is your opinion. Answer my questions sir.
You cant debate fact facts are facts the only thing that can be debated are opinions
ME: That is my point I don’t debate opinions. I speak to facts and let others talk their opinions. I say what I mean based on facts. I am going to ask one more time what do you mean in my shoes?
My opinion that he has a self serving agenda here is a fact he has acquired properties downtown with knowledge of the plans to build and where they were to be built thats a fact it is also a fact that the public did not know about those future plans and the locations
I mean in your shoes as in through your eyes I try to understand where you are coming from even though I can never fully do so
Have you never heard the saying try and walk a mile in my shoes
ME: Okay I am done so you want to use my page as a platform to get your opinions out there. Sir not going to happen. I am not going to entertain your b.s. about what you feel about Andre. You response about being in my shoes is about as ignant as them Special Cs I have been dealing with and I ain’t got time. I have never wanted for anything so I have been and continue to be a voice for the voiceless, the young folk and the elderly. I have said over the years the in between folk can about take care of themselves. What you ain’t fitting ready to do is to talk to me about your opinions of Andre with all of this opinionated b.s. I ain’t got time.
Now my closing fact!
Yes I blocked Lance Strange because I ain’t got time. I am online trying to write a post on my blog, researching information and other while I gave this dude some time but it was all b.s. and I just don’t have that kind of time. I work a real job so my time online is valuable. I don’t work a real job where I can be online all day and be able to respond like some of these Special Cs can.
Folk don’t send me a Friend Request if you think I am going to treat you Special and take time to respond to your ignant conversation based on opinions and not on facts. I base my opinions on facts so therefore I don’t do debates. Facts can’t be debated and that is what I speak to, the facts as presented to me and I will stand behind them until I am proven wrong.
I will accept Friend Request from anyone but what I ain’t fitting ready to do is to allow you to think you are going to use me because I have a hell of a Blog, in which the information goes to my Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook Accounts and I have a huge audience. And the main thing is you ain’t going to draw me into what some may call a debate because that is not a debate but just simply a damn mess. There is a difference in a debate and a damn mess.
For those who don’t know, in denial or just don’t give a damn when it comes to who I am and my platform, ya gonna learn the day!
Now Run & Tell That! Cause somebody up in here is friends with Lance Strange and some other folk that need to know.
I am for justice no matter who it is for or against.
I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest.
I am Unbought and Unbossed!
Note: Folk just don’t know the inboxes that I get from folk and comments on my blog that I have to approve for others to see. I ignore the ignant racist Special Cs and Ignant Safe Black Folk.
