CURE: Caucasians United for Reparations
I found this website for CURE: a group of white activists trying to convince the white community of the need for reparations. I looked at their bios – a bunch of oldschool lefties and such trying to manifest that old nationalist demand that white liberals speak to and organize their own communities.
I couldn’t help myself, I wanted to maintain my cynical armor but I was touched. Their sincerity was endearing. This is what I posted on their dialogue page:
I am an African American activist who does not believe that reparations are an effective contemporary African American empowerment strategy. So I think your contributions here are somewhat quixotic. I would however like to express warm appreciation for the humanistic impulses underlying your efforts here. Be well. A luta continua.
Okay, so Im a closet humanist, so what.
I visted in the site, and I although I disagree with Arthur regarding reparations, I agree with him that these people seem honestly motivated.
