Michael Stevenson - Uh, partisan fighting is in! It’s dumb and here to stay!
Muhammad Rasheed - It IS dumb, that's why I made fun of it. Perhaps that will encourage the behavior to stop.
Michael Stevenson - If you just demand over and over deflecting others’ voices it’s more of a centrist platitude than a reasoned argument. There are unanswered questions of a just variety.
Muhammad Rasheed - Deflecting the voices of anti-racism activists to neutralize the movement has been the norm in bipartisan leadership for over half a century now, Michael. The reasoned argument is that anti-Black systemic racism needs to stop because it is wrong, and the Black American ethnic group needs to be paid Reparatory Justice to make up fro the generations-deep damage done that enriched the white aristocracy. The "unanswered questions" talking point functions only as a stall tactic here.
