There you go again making simplified generalized assumptions. I make no assumption whether you had attempted to set up a fundraiser in the past. I asked the question to find out. Thank you for answering my question.

While I applaud your concerns for Black Lives in the U S, your rhetoric, in my opinion, tends to misdirect the energy towards Black Lives Matter towards a political debate over whether Andrew McCabe, (“a white Republican”) should have been allowed to receive his entire pension.

Inasmuch, McCabe was resigning from his job and the fact his resignation would have accomplished the recommendation of the investigative agency that he be fired, what more is there to see here?

I agree with you that it is senseless for anyone to donate money for McCabe’s appeal. If he wants to pursue his full pension, he should be willing to foot the bill for his legal expenses.

I do not presume to understand how white people think, but I believe there is a better way to address the need to support Black people in the U S and the U k, while at the same time addressing subliminal white privilege. After all white people in the main do not realize they are inflicted with the white privilege disease.
