Well it wasn't obvious to me because, fed up with following links I can't read, I didn't. Perhaps that is what happened in Flaneur's case too. Regarding posters' genders, that is not of course always obvious as many pseudos are not gender specific.Hexenbeest wrote: ↑Tue Jun 09, 2020 4:39 pmThe writer is a she.

Hexenbeest is also a she!
Here's the link to the writer's actual tweet. You can put your counter argument directly to her:
My counter argument to her (which I can't do directly as I don't do Twitter or wherever it was from) is that the payment was not made to line slavers' pockets, the government could have done that by buying the slaves, it was a necessary by-product of the genuine desire to stop an awful trade.
It is about time that white people stopped being made to feel responsible for something horrible that horrible white people did a long time ago.
