Teach me to use reversed angled brackets to indicate comments on a portion of your blog entry… my comments got stripped out cuz they looked like HTML and not plain text!
What I did express was 1) glad you’re not too upset to blog 2) remember that in your previous posts you also recorded community reactions of dissent to the characterizations offered by authorities 3)an application of narratological analysis to generate the scepticism necessary for hopeful action i.e. whether the reaction to the earlier incidents were to be screams of outrage or defiant silence does not determine the course of subsequent events [a story could be told of desparate racist attack in the face of expressions of community solidarity and anti-racist sentiment]– just a concern about spinning a narrative of guilt and powerlessness.
And then I added something about tears and the salt of humanity….
next time I will be cautious about pointing !
