Well, You Don't Do Yourself Any Favors...

Prominent black Reformed author, faculty member of a well-known northeastern evangelical university. If I'm speaking frankly, you're almost always right, but I want to argue with you, because you're not winsome. This guy, I'd hear him out, because he didn't start out by making me feel personally responsible for every historic sin, ever. I actually like you. I really do. Because I am a cripple, and you were The Black Guy. You and your people have had it way worse, but yeah, we both understand condescension.

But please don't complain about how you've been unfairly "savaged" for saying the same things. Because I love you, and you're right, but like I said, you don't do yourself any favors. Then again, neither do I.
