First of all Robert – I’m not twisting your words. It was you yourself who wrote ‘we were enslaved as american indians and we will be freed as american indians’. If you look at the tenses in your sentence you are saying you were enslaved (past tenses) and will be freed (future tense). Therefore your statement is implying that you are still enslaved (present tense). So as for miss quoting or misinterpreting you, I have not. I would suggest however that you phrase your statements to mean exactly the point you are trying to get across.

Secondly, I’m not calling you or any member of the AIM organization a fool. You’re the one who made that assumption. As for questioning your motives I do believe that’s a freedom granted to me – you know freedom of speech.

Just my opinions.
