Even some FReepers seem to feel that most Blacks are mired in poverty---therefore freeing them from paying Federal Income Tax constitutes a no-cost method of reparations.

If they're mired in poverty, they don't pay income taxes.

Mind you, I, and a significant number of other blacks in America are not "mired in poverty."

There is no caste system in America. If these people are "mired in poverty" than it is a (semi-)conscience decision they themselves have made, and continue to make. This nation is filled with successful men -- and women-- who have started out with little more than a shoe-string and a dream.

(Sigh) Of course they got there by "actin' white".
