Excellent points here, Jeffrey. You are making a concerted effort to really understand the words, and not just the words themselves but where they were coming from. I think you are right that Cone’s critique of non-violence need not be taken to mean a simple and clarion call to violence. If he is calling out the weak, facile nature of our caricatures of non-violence, what does a true confrontation of violence, the full scope of white violence, look like? Really great insights here, thanks!
