The following links give a good understanding of my point of view on "Black leaders". I quote "Black leaders" because I don't believe in the concept.
I think the problem for partisans is, I can believe seemingly opposing views at the same time. For example, while I am not a fan of Al Sharpton ("negative view"), I can state with clarity that Al Sharpton has spoken out against the filth in rap ("positive view"). I think that Al Sharpton is a media chaser ("negative view"), yet after observing him, I think the man is intelligent ("positive view").
To make this clear: Just because I state a FACT about someone or something that is opposition to a point being made, it doesn't mean I am in opposition to you or maybe the view. It means that I am bringing facts to the "debate" to try to elevate the debate.
This "problem" that I encounter when "debating" partisans, be they "left leaning" or "right leaning" is something that will be a constant under current in this series.
