Charles 9> and any source you cite will be guaranteed to be denied by someone else,
Given the 1st half-dozen Google.co.uk search returns all came back agreeing, I didn't think it needed citations. I did double-check in my trusty copy of The Economist Style Guide just in case there was some creative writing reason. But nah. that agreed too: Apostrophe before, not after decades. And not for plurals either.
But then I'm not an arts & humanities graduate and only went to a state school. So virtually self taught on the language side. So what do I know. I'll leave it to the experts.
Ian Joyner> Vi – an outdated text editor. Some programmers can never get away from such primitive tools.
I'm not a "programmer" and I use it daily. It is the only editor you're sure to find installed on any system you log onto as a field engineer. Hoping your favourite "feature rich" editor will be available is just foolishness.
Pitchfork at the ready. Icon burning nicely.
I'll bow out at where I came in, being incredulous at what you posted:
"Where did the white man buy his black slave? From the black slave trader who enslaved others to sell. The slave practice which has been (and still is in some places) applied around the world."
If you are ok posting that as a response to someone trying to have a little empathy and understanding about a generational, painful and complex story then as I said above to jake, fill your boots. And be thankful we'll never find ourselves on the wrong end of any of it.
Phil O'Sophical>No-one has suggested that this is a "Black-on-Black thing"
It's all about building up the narrative to excuse slavary, segregation and also the current situation/status quo, isn't it ?
And down-playing or misdirecting by taking cues from current alt.right/supremacist tropes makes me question their use.
It's a misdirect, isn't it? Some whataboutery.
Centuries of abuse, exclusion and baked-in discrimination shrugged off with some spurious and disingenious arguments such as, "Ah well, they brought it on themselves!" and "It's a Black-on-Black thing!"
I guess as long as one isn't on the recieving end this kind of sophistry and handwashing is appealing. Fill your boots.
AC> When certain people knock on your door, before they open their mouth, you automatically suspect they are up to no good;
What bollocks. You can't tell someone's predisposition to criminel acts from their face. Every fool knows you need to measure the bumps and lumps on their head! Science. SCIENCE!
codejunky> "Oh Tim !!! ♡"
Get a room already. What Alan Partridge on Manx radio should understand is that no one cares about what happens on the Isle of Man. Unless it's for fast bikes or avoiding paying taxes.
As opposed to everyone being interested in what's going on in the US right now.
