Slavery Reparations For Kansas City, Too???

A longstanding demand since the broken promise of 40 acres and a mule is now a political issue . . . We advise our blog community to think beyond a reactionary response and imagine the benefit to the global economy.

Agree or disagree, it's now a serious part of campaign 2020:

BET Founder Calls For $14 Trillion In Slavery Reparations

BET founder Robert Johnson argued Monday that "now is the time" for white America to acknowledge damages resulting from slavery, and for the U. S. Government to provide reparations in the sum of a $14 trillion wealth transfer to help prevent the country from splitting into separate and unequal so...

Hardly enough.
Maybe should be a million a piece.
Even adopted who aren’t able to prove should get a million.
Time for Gates and Zuckerberg to share their wealth.
Don’t care if great great great grandkids have to pay debt.
Hollywood needs to not higher taxes.
Anyone making over $100,000 in a movie gets taxed 95%.
No one who doesn’t want to work has to!
AOC is right. If you don’t want to work- then healthcare and income for life... maybe $50,000!
No more tickets. You can drive whatever!
And free healthcare to foreigners! Even those living elsewhere!
And personal highways so no more traffic jams!
Free food!
And farmers don’t have to work!
And free houses!
And free...

$14T, so about $785 each that will get smoked on jordans, nails, cell phones and fast food over a period of 3 days -- then what?

A Benz and Five thousand square feet. And then you can't pay the utilities. The Democrats are Desperate. Look the Irish, Italians,Jews, Had a Difficult time in the U.S.AND they are doing well now. Many successful business people .They are not asking for reparations. They worked hard and or smart .

Done, but only if the reparations come with a one way cruise back across the Atlantic.

Let's begin with justice, accountability and punishment for police murdering black people. That's a good starting point.

^^ What about blacks murdering other blacks? There's no comparison in the numbers of those 2 stats.

Well, we have spent $22 trillion on welfare since 1964. Fuck you, Robert Johnson. Reparations have been paid.

What about the whites unfairly killed by white police officers? Their families want reparations.

^^It seems genetically impossible for white men to not tell black men what to do, how to feel & even what to think.

White men, who have never forgotten that blacks were once slaves - or forgiven them for being freed, want black men to forget that they were once slaves.

Of course, the worst is pretending the blacks & whites have an equal chance.

This fantasy is really important to some white men.

^^^^ Sorry asshole, but all of us weren't around when slavery happened and many only arrived long after it was abolished. And most of us today had nothing to do with segregation unless maybe the elderly that were around at that time. You can thank Lyndon Johnson for the predicament that blacks now find themselves in by keeping them dependent on the government.

If you can't see the difference between immigrants who wanted to immigrate and those who were forced to, you're too stupid to deserve a response.

Ok, track down all descendants of the 300,000 slaves and then track down the descendants of the less than eight percent slave owners and go from there.

12:41 sorry bLIEron, the statute of limitations ran out, about 150 years ago so good luck with that one ok!

I'd be all for it if it would get rid of the race baiting, but I doubt it will. There will be further injustices to complain about.

I think the only way for the government to solve racism is to confiscate all private property, nationalize all means of production and force breed whites and blacks to create a mulatto nation, no more white race/black race, one nation of caramel colored green eyed mulattos.

The Chinese would be hatting on our game.

They already get most of the benefits. Nice try.

Sure, let's consider reparations. Prove you're a decendant of slaves, and you'll get an equal share of whatever fund can be cobbled together from a tax only on the decendants of the roughly 8% of the population that owned slaves.

Language is telling. At one point the damand was for "equality", i.e. equal opportunity. That didn't pan out, so now it's "equity", i.e. equal outcome. Who knows what tomorrow's demand will be.

^^Sorry CHUD, we are no longer listening to old white people anymore. Your opinions on this are as worthless as your life. Sit down & shut up Boomer.

Statue of limitations ran out hundreds of years ago. Now had the black had gold, jewels, land or art (like the property of jews taken by Nazis) it could be traced down and returned to them. But the blacks had no property. Since they were considered property themselves, its impossible for "property to own property".

3:36... sorry, I'm not a boomer, just someone who easily sees thru your tactic of lobbing insults when you lqck the intelligence or position to argue the point. I'm all ears, debate the fact that only roughly 8% of the US population owned slaves, or that only about half of african americans can trace slave lineage, or that equality has become equity.

3:50: I'm not 3:36, but I'll give you a response and tell you I'd agree with you IF the effects of slavery had ended in 1865, but they didn't. If you're really interested in what reparations are for, read "The Color of Law" by Richard Rothstein. That's a start.

1241 We have no blacks down here and no murders no robbery no rape no welfare. blacks are welfare dependent animals that need to be taken care of by the tax payers like a cage of hamsters

Historically, every race on earth has been enslaved at one time or another. Squealing for fourteen trillion should be totally ignored. It that isn't enough, match force with force until those making unrealistic demands get the damn message, shut-up, and go home.

Just so long as every recipient of any "Reparations payment passes a DNA test to prove absolutely that he or she has no Caucasian ancestors! If would be unbelievably rude and insulting to pay anything o anyone descended from the 'devils" who created the problem.

"One drop of Blood!"

Also, like most White Americans, I stand ready to write a Reparations check from my personal funds. It will include $10 million for every slave I have ever owned, and I will include $1 million for every slave my ancestors for six generations has ever owned. The amount of the check is $0.00, to whom should it be made payable?

4:34 for the win. Once the Boers (Dutch farmers) were forced out of
S.Africa, the country reverted to tribalism and warlords. It's in the blood. Sub species. I know a number of Viet families who fled after that war, and without exception, they are wonderful people who work hard and are successful in their relatively recent new home. The same can be said for legal immigrants from Mexico. Compare that to blacks who have had many years of government support, yet continue to fail miserably to live like respectable folks. In the blood.
