You seem to be making two separate claims here:
1. That I summarily dismissed the three editorials I have read. This is not the case. I carefully read the one text you cited, focused on the entire part where she describes her experiences in the USA, and then analysed that part.
So, this claim is objectively incorrect since there was no summary dismissal of her experiences by me.
2. That my dismissal is somehow an inconsistent use of standpoint epistemic. This incorrectly assumes that I have been using standpoint epistemic, which is not the case. I do not have enough experience in using it to be using it in this thread.
Since neither of these two claims are correct, I will move on....
She does when she says she's free and not being oppressed.
This is so vague as to be meaningless. However, we can see that she is describing her personal experience. And since we know that it is possible that she has had different experiences than most black people born in the USA, it is possible for her vague statement to be correct in some way and for systemic racism to be a significant factor for almost all BIPOC people in the USA.
Everything systemic, or institutional that is. Thanks for pointing that out.
Please write in complete sentences. Thank you.
And yet you can say that a narrative is as unspecific as I want when it comes to argue for CRT. Because, again, you don't apply standpoint epistemology as you are now making demands of how Black women are supposed to make their voices heard too as a precondition to consider their narratives.
This seems all about me. I will therefore ignore it.
You do not seem to disagree that narratives can have different levels of specificity.
You are not considering the fact that, as a Black woman, she knows more about this topic than you so under standpoint epistemology and you are now making demands that she should be "more specific" as if believers in standpoint epistemology advocates telling Black women how to express themselves.
You either go all the way with standpoint epistemology or you don't at all.
She does not need to be more specific if she does not want to be. I have no demands from her.
Since that now absolves me from whatever personal attack you are making here, this tangent is also dealt with.
