Reparations have longed been a desired goal for the injustices of slavery in the west. While two wrongs will never make a right, all this destruction and property theft across this great nation should now be taken as final payment for the past injustices.
In the past 60 years, there have been many similar actions taken among the folks seeking reparations. Millions of sneakers, hundreds of thousands of big screen TVs, countless clothes and other high ticket items were stolen. Additionally, the tremendous cost to repair all the destroyed buildings. This current theft is the final payment. We the People are finally paid in full. There is no more talk of reparations. It is over.
Except a lot of the looting is being done by young white punks from the suburbs. What exactly do I owe them?
We owe those people JAIL TERMS.
Except that the looters are getting relatively little value for their efforts. Can you eat a pair of Nike sneakers? Can you wear a UHD tv? They can re-sell these things for pennies on the dollar and buy something (most likely in their case that something is drugs). The SJWs in the Hollywood class will give about an ounce of their flesh. That won’t hurt much. So who is the net winner and net loser in all of this? That’s an honest question. I know all of us law abiding, hard-working people pay, but who is getting paid? I’m thinking large cohorts such as architects, security companies and attorneys.
FINAL payment? Hahahahahahaha .... Once you pay the Dane, ....
Good point! More than paid in full.
How About NO! and nobody gets nothing except the Illegals get Deported en masse. Then you can GET A JOB!!
I would think a few ounces of lead would suffice?
Affirmative Action was payment in full. Now they owe America.
This is an interesting thought experiment. I would counter this point in that it would not stimulate the economy (i.e. a large chunk of that money would be spent on drugs and other unhealthy goods and services). And it certainly won't put reparations behind us, because the recipients aren't the ones calling on reparations to begin with. The intelligentsia of the minority left are the ones calling for them, and they won't be permanently appeased. It will be an unending call for "a second, third, fourth stimulous".
Actually, according to the flyers being handed out, BLM wants $14 trillion. Not enough Nikes in the entire universe.
Are the White, neck-bearded, low-T instigators getting their reparations, too?
Fine. Hollyweird can send them some blow as a down payment.
Civil War 1 was payment in full
Southern discrimination and great society handouts
are accounting credits
I mean offsets
The score is now evened up.
You got *paid* for someone else’s wrongdoing and suffering. It’s over and done with now.
so criminals get reparations and innocent people get nothing. Good deal.
Actually, IMO reparations were paid up about 30 years ago.
Why is RESTITUTION never paid to innocent property owners for their losses?
I lived in CA years ago, and rioting by a small group of the same people happened over& over.
They were always caught in the act, were routinely released & charges dismissed, and never paid a dime. But they routinely sued & collected millions for violation of their “Constitutional rights.”
These are the same people who want to tear up the Constitution bc white people wrote it.
