Kansas City Blogger Talks Reparations

Inspiration from a faith-based local blogger on an issue that has met with an unexpected resurgence which has only garnered traction among cable news pundits and activists without any real sense of history. Take a look:

What Frederick Douglass can teach us about reparations: 7-6/7-19

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Mount Hope Cemetery here, founded in 1838, is huge -- some 200 acres through which 14 miles of roads run. So my only hope of finding the grave of the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass was to stop...

Frederick Douglass was an American hero who gave his life defending our airports during the Revolutionary War.

And there is photographic evidence, but it's in black and white. Color was invented by Andrew Jackson in the 1830s.

Less than 2% of living Americans descended from families that owned slaves. My family lived in mud huts on the prairie and farmed the soil.

The idea, that there should be an ex post facto tax on tax payers for the sins of 175 years ago, is insane, but not unexpected from the promoters of the "Victimization" narrative, that needs the animosity and hatred of blacks for whites in order to acquire high office.

Are we all gonna submit to DNA tests and determine exactly who owes how much on a percentage basis? What about all of the white boys who died fighting for the North? Do their families get some cheese?

Do recent immigrants that are "of color" cash in?

It's an unworkable, feint to gin up more hatred of "Whitey" in the coming 2020 election.

I am 4% Ashkenazi Jew and I want some serious fuckin cash from those descendants of Nazi Germans who stuck my ancestors asses in ovens. That seems a lot worse than picking cotton.

Here is the deal.

I betcha, if every black person in the United States, signed an agreement, that they would shut the fucking fuck up, about how "oppressed" they are and determine a number, Americans would move heaven and hell to pay the fuckin tax and move on.

But that won't happen.

It's a necessary narrative that MUST continue in order for Progressives to get elected.

19 Trillion Dollars, that's Trillion with a "T" has been paid out since the 1964 Civil Rights Acts, in quotas, Affirmative Action, legislation et al.

Ya think THAT isn't "Reparations"?

Let's hear a number - than, if it is paid, no more Affirmative Action, no more quotas, no more set asides, no more ...

It will never happen.

Fuckin liars.

It will never end. Our great grandchildren will be listening to lectures from guys like Bill T and expected to feel guilty over stuff that happened 350 years ago.

If the damage caused by slavery had ended with the Civil War, Chuck MIGHT have a good argument, but it didn't end there. It continued right through the building, with government approval (and often required by FHA and VA), of whites-only suburbs. Post-Reconstruction there was outright theft of black-owned property (and in an area where one could be lynched, what recourse was there?). And, sad to say, it continues to this day as the brilliant comments on TKC about the cracker's rant in Lee's Summit the other day when kids who had a perfect right to swim in their neighborhood pool were swimming.

Maybe we could skip a Mideast war or two and find a way to make things right.

The Blacks got a free boat ride to America. Once here they were provided food, clothing, housing, and medical care. All that was asked in return was to help out a little on the farm. Now their descendants want money ? Such ingratitude.

Gee. With all those benefits, why was there a need for the Fugitive Slave Act? Why would people leave such a great situation?

Crickets.

Frederick Douglass said that he'd rather be in the hands of a Virginia planter than a coastal black African. That's because Africans have been selling and enslaving each other since before time began. Sometimes to each other, sometimes to Arabs, sometimes to Europeans. Sometimes for chattel, sometimes for work, sometimes for food.

Can we get a Morgan Freeman voice over? Hallelujah!

The blacks were sold out by other blacks in their native country. LBJ made sure the black people stayed poor and helpless with his bogus war on poverty. LBJ was a racist who admitted he just wanted their votes. Wealthy blacks owned slaves, take a look at William Johnson of Natchez.

Just because slavery occurred at other times in history and in other places including Africa DOES NOT EXCUSE the 400 years of chattel slavery used in clearing the land and literally building what came to be the United States. Only racists will use that as an argument to justify continued racism

Yeah sure, go ahead and move down to 25th and Cleveland.

What?

You're staying where you are?

"Whites only" neighborhoods are a good idea.

Check this blog for crimes like murder, rape, robbery, it ain't the Amish.

If you feel like you need to spend some of your hard earned money on even more freebies for blacks, by all means, cut a check.

I would like to keep my money and make sure my family is safe.

^^^The first recorded slave transaction, in 1619, involved a black slave owner.

Nobody ever addresses what will happen after payment of reparations. Will that settle the issue forever? No more haranguing race hustlers, no more racial preferences, the NAACP shuts its doors and BLM quietly goes away? If that's guaranteed, a one time reparations payment may be worth it. But if reparations recipients are just going to spend the money and then demand more, fuggedaboudit.

8:37 What is the number? How much more money? When will it end? Let's have a number, pay it out and END the racist, anti-white laws in effect that along with the anti-white hatred that permeates the media, can stop and we can move forward.

And the most coddled, subsidized, responsibility-free bunch of folks in history still has its hand out. The myth of the helpless, eternally traumatized victim is still a pretty good distraction from real issues-- like the stark preponderance of violent crime amongst blacks and their near total failure to thrive in a country where they are literally supported cradle to grave and handed preference in jobs, college admissions, government programs, you name it.

Reparations will never rise beyond the level of conversation.

good thing black people have never sold or enslaved a black person here or on the other side of the atlantic.

Colonel Angus said...

Reparations ? The first slave ships were owned by Jews. That would be a good starting point.

It seems to me that you all are the ones playing the victim card. The 2016 election was all about the poor, pitiful, long suffering, put upon white man. Der Fuhrer played the race card on day one, & you sucked it up. You're still carrying his water even though he's clearly as mad as a hatter.

This talk of reparations has come because it is still not alright.

There is still systemic racism.

How many times have you seen a white boy commit mass murder, than be arrested?

How many unarmed black men have been killed in "self-defense"?

It will happen, & no one expects the denizens of StormFront Lite to like it, but it will happen. Yes, it's implementation is problematical, but it will happen.

to imply native americans have had reparations is absurd.

^^^^^^Actually, they have, but that's not the point.

Soon Byron will be in jail and we will be done with him. There he will see how his I love blackie talk will get him cornedholed nightly.

Bradley and Bruce claim to be bitches, then I'm a blackie, mofos!!! said...

I am identifying as trans-racial. Then, after my reparation payment is received, I'm going back to being white.
