I love white guilt. Feel free to cut me a check.
AA is ineffective, but not because it's a poor form of reparations. AA is ineffeective because it is a band-aid solution instead of solving the problem in general.

AA is ineffeective because it is a band-aid solution instead of solving the problem in general. i feel the band-aid point, but i dont know if you read my other posts on this thread. what i'm trying to get as is AA as something worse than a band-aid because it was never intended to be any kind of solution. rather it was intended to ccorrupt the Black liberation struggle by absorbing the threat of revolt and resistance outside of capitalism, and by injecting the values of the dominant society. this was reactionary in the face of a communitarian, radical Black nationalist, liberation struggle. if you look at its history AA was created and put into effect by whites, this on its face makes me suspicious of its motives. anyway i think some of what i meant got taken the wrong way although i have been trying to clarify... check out all my posts.
