I think you calling me bitter can be interpretated in two ways:
a) That I'm bitter because of the way my mormon ancestors were treated. Which it seems a little odd that someone who espouses the view that blacks should be given reparations because of past atrocities doesn't think that mormons should be given reparations for the past atrocities that were committed.
b) You are addressing my sarcastic undertone that blacks shouldn't be given reparations.
I feel that you called me bitter in the second sense, so I will discuss that interpretation. If I am wrong please excuse the straw man.
I don't think the conditional statement that if you are young then you can't be bitter really holds. I think you called me bitter more because you feel that my bitterment is unwarranted. I on the other hand believe that my "bitterment" is warranted. But obviously this argument (as i have recently found out) has been beaten to death on LSD. One more thing, I don't appreciate the vindictive nature of your posts. I understand that this isn't a formal setting and you don't have to be professional, but when you make a good point I don't think you should add "sheesh" at the end. It just comes off as very hurtful. I'm a very sensitive guy. I thought your point could stand up for itself, and doesn't need emotives. Thanks for your comments though. They help me to think and evaluate my position on certain topics. If I am wrong I love to be shown otherwise, so that I don't walk in falsity.
