What will be proposed is more programs for minorities.
I say minorities and not blacks, descendants of slaves, because once these new programs are proposed every other minority will jump on the 'historic victim' bandwagon.
Castro is obviously trying to get the other half of Mexico’s population to sneak into the USA for a free check. That’s how you get elected to Congress from San Antonio .and his mother is a flaming Communist Latina.
Why do the people who vote for Democrats time after time do not understand they want to enslave us?
Here is s song for the Donks who “give away stuff” to get elected, so people do not pay attentio to their liberal fascist totalitarian societal control policies:
” The Big Rock Candy Muntains”
Someone please explain to me the infatuation liberals have with black people.
Because all of those people who were actually “property” are dead you dumb ass.
No, this is atrictlyva vote thing. These voters want cash, and not more programs.
Reparations is a bad idea, but . . .
If it is determined to be necessary, don't sugar coat it. Make both the purpose and the remedy clear.
One easy way: first, adopt a test to determine who is white and who is black. Mark them so there is no confusion.
Next add a reparations fee to electric bills (say $100 per month) to all identified white people and disperse the money to those entitled to reparations.
Plan to end the reparations fee when those receiving the benefit announce they have been compensated enough.
And since blacks owned slaves, how are the reparations to be extracted?
What about all the US tribes that owned slaves who pays them?
And what about all those of Slavic descent whose ancestors were enslaved by the Romans, who pays them?
This Castro punk looks like he has no ears. Plus he has the perfect name for a commie.
we compensate people because we take their property,
The peculiar institution of slavery predated the creation of the United States. I find it interesting that advocates of reparations never mention seeking redress from the Dutch, the English, the French, the Portugese or the Spanish in addition to the American government. All of these colonial powers had taken part in importing slaves to the New World. Likewise one never hears of calls for redress directed against African and Arab slave traders.
I’m good with paying reparations to blacks with a slave heritage provided illegal aliens pay back all the social service money they have embezzled from us in the past. Neither of these things will happen.
What will be proposed is more programs for minorities. We are already paying reparations through a multitude of liberal programs aimed at black Americans, now states are floating monthly stipends of 600 dollars with no strings attached. And now we are hearing reparations for slavery. I am sick of this
Fidel or Raul?
why wouldnt you compensate people who actually were property?.....because they weren’t, never could be property. Solved.
Castro is just posturing and hoping to defang “The Bern” before the Primaries..

The last time this came up, several black american leaders said that reparations would not be paid directly to individuals but would be funneled to programs designed to improve their economic well being. IOW, a welfare program for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
The sin of slavery has been paid in full by the death of hundreds of thousands of troops both North and South.
Click the link below to see the true horror of that war.
It should also be noted that these numbers do not include civilian deaths due to the war.
THE DEBT HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL!
I worked in Africa in the early eighties on drilling rigs for oil. A black American driller remarked after seeing what it is today, “Thank God for Slavery.” He realized if not for slavery he would have been them instead of a very successful American man in the oilfields.
Slavery was a most obscene institution. The debt for this obscenity has been paid in blood. Today that debt is zero!
He’s got a point but most slaves are dead now.
