Skip to comments.Some white people in Philly are giving away money as reparations. Should you?

Over the last year, a 35-year-old West Philadelphia resident came to the realization that, while he worked hard for his $120,000-a-year corporate salary, he didnt necessarily earn it.
After all, he figured, his white privilege paved the way for his many advantages: a college education, limited debt, and that well-paying job.
Its not like I deserve all this money and someone else doesnt, he said. Theres no reason for it other than skin color and forced oppression thats not that far in the past.
So, he decided to start giving it away to people of color, as reparations.
He claims he now donates about two-thirds of his annual income tens of thousands of dollars to a range of initiatives. He participates in Safety Pin Box, a subscription service to support black women (and, some would say, to assuage white guilt). He donates to people who request help in reparations-focused Facebook groups. Hell give a $20 tip on a $6 Uber ride if the driver is a person of color. Or, if someone he knows runs into financial trouble, hell simply give them the cash. The man asked not to be named in this article because he doesnt want to claim any credit for repaying what is, in his view, an old debt he had no right to incur.

It’s called , being mugged
it's = its
Nope. I don’t have any ancestors that were slave owners.
More wack jobs.
What a Sap....he’ll be giving away more money soon enough - at the point of a gun...
It might be worth giving blacks reparations just to shut them up. If that worked I would be for it. Latinos dont have a right to anything but still are expecting free stuff. Ugh!!!!
“Over the last year, a 35-year-old West Philadelphia resident came to the realization that, while he worked hard for his $120,000-a-year corporate salary, he didnt necessarily earn it.”
Then he should tell his boss so he can be fired for not doing his job.
>>Its not like I deserve all this money and someone else doesnt,<<
Fool and his money.
A fool and his money are soon parted
I do and I don't care. I inherited nothing from them and I never owned a slave.
Hell give a $20 tip on a $6 Uber ride
..are they gonna be pissed when he runs out....then they’ll kick his wussy azz
Note that this so-called generous guy wishes to remain anonymous.
I suppose we could ALL anonymously claim to be donating to our pet causes.
Had it right the first time. It is contracts to it’s
If something belongs it’s its.
Why didn’t he just give up his job?
Half the population is below average.
