Re: Why Steiner is BOTH Racist AND not Racist
- Tom to Jennifer:
>So, Jennifer, imagine a world where the Critics could acknowledgeI'll blow your mind and say sure, Steiner wasn't a racist. At least
>that Steiner wasn't a racist
not all the time, not when he was talking about brotherhood and love
and light for everyone and racial ties being a thing of the past.
I know you meant it as something mystical and all, sorry to deflate
this huge crescendo your complex explanation was supposed to be
coming to, but there really is no problem acknowledging the nonracist
Steiner as nonracist. It's the *racist* Steiner quotes that critics
have a tendency to point out are, racist.
>and, in turn, the Anthros acknowledge that Steiner was a racist.As long as we're all having our minds blown by these far-fetched
predictions of Tom's (that's meant ironically), let me also say that
it wouldn't really be that difficult for more anthros to acknowledge
Steiner was a racist, and I fully expect some of you to eventually
get around to it. Just tonight Frank agreed that the comments about
blacks being earthy were racist.
Did the world go on turning, or did the world end and I missed it?
