Regarding Reform & Reparations

Faith community consideration of a political movement from this Kansas City newsman scribe . . . Checkit:

Reform Jews are helping us think about 'reparations'

The subject of possible "reparations" to African-American descendants of slaves is so controversial as to seem simply to be a non-starter in our era of political Manichaeism, when we're 100 percent right and our enemies are 100 percent wrong. There...

Hey Bill, how about reparations to mothers who aborted one or more child and are now realizing that they in effect aborted their grandchildren too? And they were encouraged by limp dicks like you? (Is it true that you became impotent after your wife cheated on you?)

Notice how Bill has closed ALL comments on his blog? He is a cuck thru and thru. (Look it up, Bill.)

Hilarious that most blacks dont even know their fathers but yet we are to believe they are descendants of slaves

what I like is they blame every white person for slavery when only about eight percent of the population had slaves.

Did you all know that less than 5% of all the slaves that came from africa were brought to America?

What about the other 95%? Who’s paying for them?..... Thought so.

With all the dumb Black American penis that goes into White women, reparations would only be paid to White people. Black men destroy pretty much everything, including their own longevity. Send the money to Africa.

Hmmm... estimated 18 million slaves shipped the the Americas and less than 400 thousand stopped in our country. Some are still slaves in South America. Why don't you seek to free and pay them?

So we pay off black people for being black using tax money they themselves also paid into, so how's that going to help them?

What if their ancestors were slavers themselves back in Africa, or owned slaves themselves as many free blacks did at the time? How much do we deduct from their payment? What if they emigrated here in the past 50 years after Jim Crow? What if they're only partially black? Do we deduct by blood degree?

Now let's introduce the Equal Protection clause of the Constitution into play. Since tens of thousands of English were forcibly sent to the Americas under indentured servitude or worse, the Irish and other whites who were enslaved in the 1600's by the British? How do we repay the discrimination shown against the Jews, Italians and others who came here? Are they no less worthy?

In the end, reparations are exposed as little more than a money grab.

Get a grip, Matlock. Contrary to what Moscow Mitch feeds you via Fox News in your memory care center, the effects of slavery did not end 150 years ago. They continued through the Jim Crow era, the denial of GI Bill benefits (both educational and housing loans) to black veterans, and even to this day as we see the gentrification of poor neighborhoods.

Reparations should be in the form of a one-way ticket to Africa.

^^^^And your reward is a one-way ticket to wherever your ancestors lived 400 years ago, and if you have to be sliced and diced to accomplish that, so be it!

The first slave ships were owned by Jews. That said, Jews love to demand reparations, especially in regard to their precious, Holohoax myth.

^^^^The 1930s called. The thousand year Reich wants you to walk into the light and come home.

You throw down one hell of a confidence game.

Reparations. If anything is given, it will eventually be not enough. It will never end. Wouldn't the ancestry of having Caucasian relatives make said person ineligible for reparations? The relative having collected payment already? Wouldn't that line be cut off?

Harold Eugene Johnson said...

Every race on Earth has been a slave to someone else at one time or another. Reparations are demands from people who want something for nothing.

10:07: Interned Japanese were given $20,000 in 1988. It was a platry sum, but they have not asked for more. As for Caucasian blood, how do you think, until recently, that would have happened?

6:18, note the differences between the average Japanese American and African American. Just to start, values education, doesn’t make teen pregnancy by unknown baby daddies a way of life, works hard and doesn’t expect handouts, doesn’t play a broken record about being victims in the past. Most African Americans receive some sort of government assistance during their lives (many from birth to death), so it’s hardly fair to make any sort of comparison with that which was given to the Japanese camp survivors.
