What was your reasoning for justifying the lack of minority representation on the GB?
I defended the Borg vigorously for the all white GB. My reasoning was: At the time the Borg started up in the 1800's it needed well educated men to get it establish. During those times there werent many educated Black folks to handle that monumental task. So it was only natural to use the talents and education of the greater society - White men, they knew better and were in a better situation to get thing done. However, it wasnt until I left the Borg I discovered that many GB members didnt go to college and many were not all that educated. And since it was looked down upon to study Black History, I didnt have any idea how many educated Black people were in the world at that time (for all times) - I just thought what the world portrayed to me - That Blacks were uneducated and needed the Euro man for everything or anything legitimate. Then I started thinking how can these men represented me or my culture, or any other cultures but there own.
Anyway, if you had justification of these acts, please let me know what it was. Or if you still feel it's justified please let me know.
Peace - LL
