Jones claims to be a valuable Pacifica Radio activist, but is this letter what he considers valuable? contact Pacifica Nat'l Board Chair Leslie Cagan and ask why her friend and supporter Dan Jones treats people with this level of hate

League professors (the isoceles triangulation continues)

Mr Herman-

I am not surprised that you would leak my email
immediately to your little thug friends. Or that you
would encourage them to try to get me fired from my
job. I have come to know you as a malicious,
embittered old man who responds in completely
predictable invertebrate fashion to any email from me.

But I am fairly shocked by the racist bile that
surrounded your posting of my email on the internet.
Most of the white supremacy of Pacifica Plan B
supporters tends to be of the unconscious kind, not
the B-of-a-N stuff you guys posted.

Does it reflect a belief on your part that affirmative
action has gone too far? Or maybe a general,
free-floatin hostility that the white race is not
gettin a fair shake?

None of us have clean hands, do we?

For example, I don't know about your background, Mr
Herman, but I know damn well the town where Mr Chomsky
chose to live his life and raise his families was at
that time an extremely upper-class lily-white enclave
with no diversity whatsoever.

Independent of what that says about his actual (rather
than professed) class politics, it sure says a lot
about a practical real-world commitment to bridging
communities. Of course, he won't comment on that
because he has bigger fish to fry. And much email to
answer.

But still I can't help but think it influenced his
somewhat stunted worldview in some important ways.

I for one ain't ready for Plan B (the other option of
course was a saavy political settlement which the
white jackasses in Pacifica-like yourself-of course
resisted and eventually destroyed)

>From my vantage point in science and medicine, white
privilege is not only alive and kicking but getting
worse. We need to all keep working and yes change with
the times and get all wiggy with the new changing
demographics. But we sure as hell don't need
white-power Plan B.

No, your embrace of the "Plan B" folks (which includes
all the nasty malicious white people I know of in
Pacifica) doesn't surprise me. I have seen no evidence
to date that you are an honest or helpful person.

But cut out the blackface and jive-shucking, willya?
There is nothing more embarassing than a septugenarian
Ivy League patrician trying to mock rap music.
