Reparations Happy Hour Invites White People to Pay for Drinks
By Daniel Victor
In Portland, Ore., organizers of the Reparations Happy Hour invited black, brown and indigenous people to a bar and handed them $10 bills as they arrived, a small but symbolic gift mostly funded by white people who were asked not to attend.
Brown Hope, a local activist organization, wanted the event, which was held on Monday, to be a space for people of color in a mostly white city to meet one another, discuss policy issues and plan potential action.
While it was far from the full-scale reparations sought by some as penance for the horrors of slavery and continuing racial injustice, Cameron Whitten, the 27-year-old activist who organized the event, said there was one similarity: It made attendees feel as if their pain were valued and understood.
It was only $10, but when I saw them I saw their eyes light up, he said. What I saw there was that people felt like they were finally seen.

Again? Okay. Once reimbursement for transportation, food and lodging is forthcoming, then someone may think about reparations. I said think. Not necessarily do. I suppose some “repatriation” could be arranged.
Preparation for Muzzieland when non-muzzie minorities will have to pay for
muzzle goodies for the muzzles along with everybody else who pays.
Memorial Day? How about buying a coffee for a Military person.
Do they really want to go there? For years many Black activists loudly and proudly claimed the ancient Egyptians were dark skinned Africans. 5000 yrs ago they enslaved the Hebrews for at least 1000 yrs. Any reparations owed to American slaves is dwarfed by what’s owed the Jews and Christians on a 5000+ yr old debt that was never repaid, not even factoring in the accrued interest and late fees. So yeah, bring it on!
WOW! I done be got me ten dollars from dat stupid Whitey!
These people will never give up. Even after they take all Whitey’s money, and terminate Whitey, they will still be hollerin’ about White Privilege. They will never take responsibility for their actions. They will never stop blaming Whitey for their self-inflicted failures.
As for the “white people who were asked not to attend” you are the worst of a$$holes! They took your money and didn’t let you attend. They don’t want you, they want your money. After they take you money, they will eliminate you. If you can’t see that, you deserve what they are going to do to you.
There can never be enough “reparations” because people will continue to make poor choices, who will not emulate their bretherin who make good choices, but will instead blame “Whites” and with them the bigots of the Left, who believe the very same racist tripe that the color of a person’s skin says something vital about who they are, who they can be and even who they should be, those racist of the Left, they will go on an on about how bad white people are and how deserving black people are and the whole thing will fester and rot all the more.
Once you can’t be happy without feeling a little miserable you can never really be content or feel blessed ever again. Even in riches and fame there are ashes and bitterness vicariously to be had.
Better to rise up in arms and make an end of them.
Thank you, but, no. I’ve been paying for 50 years.
when blacks were held as slaves, their masters purchased everything for them.
Now blacks are free to buy their own drinks.
Protest outside with an It’s Okay to be White shirt
What’s the purpose of this?
To promote the idea that blacks need white welfare even for alcohol?
Like I’ve said: It would be ok to pay reparations to folks that were actually slaves. There doesn’t appear to be too many of them around though.
The civil rights movement has gone from “We are all united by our common humanity” to “All races are eternally separate, and their differences can never be bridged”
But God said they would be in Egypt for 400 years.
12 Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, [p]terror and great darkness fell upon him. 13 God said to Abram, Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, where they will be enslaved and oppressed four hundred years. 14 But I will also judge the nation whom they will serve, and afterward they will come out with many possessions. 15 As for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you will be buried at a good old age. 16 Then in the fourth generation they will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorite is not yet complete.
(The sin of the Amorite was complete when they started child sacrifice [?] and then the Israelite invasion began)
What about reparations to the soldiers who fought and died for their freedom in the Civil war?
If I’m a white self identifying as split personality black and brown, will I get $20.00?
I’m still waiting for someone to thank me for my white Irish relatives that fought for the slaves freedom in the civil war.
“Here’s $10 - there’s your precious reparations! Now shaddup!”
Wish I had been there I would have donated an old 200-Lira Italian coin.
