Is the black solution a secret, which should be kept from white thinkers in case they try to steal it?

What on earth are you talking about? This makes no sense. Name an issue that is secret or kept to oneself? (Perhaps you can't answer this because folks keep it a secret from you!!!)

Look, I'm not personally trying to burden you with any opinion but I put this to you: If there was a forum on this site including the views of 15 anonymous posters - some of whom black and some of whom white liberals - I am confident that onlookers (even the PHD students amongst you) would not be able to differentiate.
