Dear Mr Beard,
I thank you for the link to the information. I have digested it and produced a sort essay of sorts regarding my thoughts on what I have learned of the "Black Tax Revolt"
Here is the link:
I would hope that you would be patient enough to continue this discussion with me.
I am 23 years old. Attended Howard University, am originally from Minnesota. I am the publisher and editor of The Liberator Magazine which was started about 4 years ago by myself and other young people while I was still in college in DC. I hope that me being forthright in providing some background on who I am will help ensure you that I have the best intentions in this discussion.
One of the things that I mention in my short essay is this:
I am so interested in this dialog and hope it does not end. One of the things I am most weary of is the separation of dialog groups and spaces, where those who believe one thing choose to dialog with those who already believe the same thing, rather than participating in diverse spaces where we are challenged to be rational and patient and understanding in our discussion. We have to be willing to listen.
I hope that you read my essay containing my honest thoughts and questions on this topic as I think it an important one for myself and others. And I hope that we can continue this discussion. And I hope that we both learn more moving forward. And most importantly, I hope that we move towards reaching a common understanding through this discussion.
Again, here is the link to my sort essay-like compilation of thoughts.
