Yes.

Thank you.


I don't understand why you're thanking me.

Are you asking a question? If not I'll have to delete your post according to the FAQ. If you are asking a question please rephrase.


OK. Why are you thanking me?

It is part of becoming the best person I can be. In order to become the best person I can be I have to be more courteous...actually the most courteous person I can be. Part of me being the most courteous person I can be is to say "thank you", especially when I am fortunate to have someone provide me clarity about what I'm looking at.

Of course, to be the best person I can be I can't be subject to racism (white supremacy). This means in my interaction with the white people whom I deem able to mistreat me on the basis of color that courtesy has a fine line...it may even at sometimes appear non-existent.

Response: Yes, I'm white.

I looked around the room and noticed the people who were part of the conversation. There were two white people and three non-white people.

Question: Are you a white person?

Response: Next question.

This was a "homeless" person. I asked this person if I could ask them some questions and that I'd pay them for their answers. I told them I only had a few dollars to spare but could pay them for each answer. They wouldn't answer the "critical question".
