If they really wanted reparations, wouldn't make sense to go to the original perpetrators??? Have you ever heard of anyone asking for reparations from Ghana, Gambia, Senegal???
If you want to know how Reparations payments would go simply study the Pigford shakedown.
I guess a case can be made (a very weak one) for all these things listed as reasons for reparations....except...
But how in the world can the black community hold Reagan from the 1980's WAY PAST the civil rights era is responsible for black people killing their own communities by selling, abusing and using the drug "crack"...
Black people sold it, black people used it, black people abused it, black people profited from it...
and these morons want us to pay them for their own immoral behavior...
Sorry...I forgot they are liberals
And most inner-city blacks are still living under slavery today. They get their rent paid by section 8, food stamps, free medical care paid for in exchange for “staying on the democrat plantation”.
I’’ll bet that if his ancestors weren’t held as slaves in America he’d be a slave in Africa right now. Or he’d be living in poverty.
Along with Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Barney Frank, Maxine Waters, Tierney, Waxman, Leahy, Boxer, John "F'n" Kerry, Al "Fool" Franken, Sheila Jackson Lee, etc.....
A few key members of the Libtard Rogues Gallery...
The Great Society worked well didn’t it?
Destroyed the black family structure in just two generations.
Illegitimacy went from 19 to 75%.
When both the perpetrator and the victim are dead, in this case for many years, the statute of limitations has expired. Both the bible and secular law forbids visiting the sins of the father on the child.
Get over it Keith, if you want to address slavery talk to Islam which still practices and condones that practice and pedophilia.
Give them the reparations on condition that all affirmative action programs for blacks immediately end.
Or that any who take the reparation have to leave the country for Liberia.
Hey Keith, 147 years later tell your people to get their pants off the ground, take advantage of the free public education, speak the common language,get a job and try get married before having 4 kids. Maybe the white population would like to finally be free from you.
As far as reparations go what do you think the welfare state since LBJ’s Great Society has been?
True, but you somehow got a magical 'benefit' on the back of a slave, somewhere, somehow...at least that's the line.
***Reparations were paid in full years ago.***
In BLOOD. 1861-1865. Half a million casualties. White boys slaughtering each other over the issue of slavery.
Why would any black man choose to become a Muslim, when Muslims owned more slaves than anyone ever did in this country.
“He seems to be paying tribute to Thrasymachus as well. Under the Sophistic guile of this statement lies the irrefutable fact that not one of the ‘we’ to whom he refers has ever been a slave.”
Exactly. Like I said in a previous post, I lost a lot of family in the Holocaust, but that certainly doesn’t grant me the right to call myself a Holocaust survivor.
Walter E Williams....he just rocks. When he fills in for Rush, it’s awesome. Why he doesn’t have his own show (or Mark Steyn, for that matter.) is beyond me.
“9/11 reaped such great dividends for Muslim conquest.”
You ain’t lyin’ there.
Under that line of thinking, the Egyptians owe me some serious scratch. My peeps built their pyramids which turned into quite the tourist attraction between revolutions. While we’re at it, I need to get a hold of the Babyloninans, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, etc. /s
I’m gonna cash in, dagnabit!
Ain’t it just simply amazing how this is constantly thrown in to the nearest Memory Hole ?
And with no end in sight. If I buy something on installment payments, I create a debt. But that debt has LIMITS.
With all the ‘free’ benefits africans, living in America, receive, there is no end. I refuse to sign up for such idiocy. Besides, my ancestors, to my knowledge, were among the poor whites in Georgia, pre-Civil War (AKA, War of Northern Aggression).
Many southern whites couldn’t afford a single slave.
As for the “400 years” line of crap, there was about 80 years between undependence from Britain and the Civil War.
If they repeat the lie often enough, it will become the truth...
