I don’t deny this. It would have been better to have allowed it. But a vote is a vote. And to ignore it, is to ask for all votes to be ignored. We are in a quandary. Someone has to give. You and Harpa stand and condemn the third world folk for their attitude, but I assume would not take such liberties with black Americans.
The third world is who it is for a number of reasons. I have spoken to George about recognizing the psychology of the matter. I think it is understandable, so therefore a bit of accommodation from the “stronger” members might be appropriate, rather than railing against them for their “primitive thinking”. We are all human with various foibles.
