Great! I love the hits, thanks. Feel free to come out to a show sometime... we're on hiatus at the moment, but will likely pull something together in the fall. Our ten-year anniversary show, actually.
And sorry, for some reason I thought you were referring to me. Be that as it may, I have no intention of picking a fight with you or anything, but with the rhetoric you're spinning here, it seems like you're looking for one.
It is hard for me to accept the idea that any one particular group of folks are "owed" any ownership privileges to any part of our fair city. I was just as annoyed when predominantly Jewish sections of Crown Heights attempted to get the bike lanes moved out of their corner of town, so that the ladies pedaling by in light workout clothing would not offend their hallowed senses.
Basically, any sense of unearned entitlement tends to rankle me.
Oh, very interesting video, by the way. Quite informative, and, I believe, strikingly accurate. But that's not to say that some groups of Africans didn't at some point in their history traffic in slave trade. I recall that the Berbers in the 7th or 8th century seemed pretty happy to sell fellow Africans to the neighboring Persian Empire for wealth, security and profit.
If you're happy, you're not paying attention.
