Kansas City Star Trolls Readers With Polemic Advocating Slavery Reparations

We've talked about reparations in the context of local public policy that's moving forward . . . Meanwhile, the Star recently published a "think piece" that takes a broader view with a cash ask that seems unlikely even from the strongest supporters of the movement . . . Checkit:

After decades of failure to close the wealth gap, Black Americans need reparations

Dramatic events during the last several months have once again laid bare the glaring racial inequities that exist in this country. The murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis policeman enraged the country as another unarmed Black man was executed by law enforcement.

As long as the "reparations" include loss of US Citizenship and a mandatory one-way ticket to Africa for everyone accepting them, I'm all for it!

So discount fifty or so years of cradle to grave welfare and the total cost of black dysfunction and criminality, and we haven't got a problem.

Exactly. Get a job, it's already late morning.

No to reparations unless the person can file a tax return where the job description is "SLAVE". And the reparations are paid by people with job descriptions of "SLAVE OWNER, PLANTATION OWNER, etc". Quit trying to change history.

If Black Americans deserve reparations what do Native Americans get? We stole the whole country from them. Plus the black people here ended up much BETTER off than the ones that stayed in Africa.

Does this mean the current Japanese American and German American populations are paying all other Americans back for their ancestors destroying the lives of a lot of Americans?

Less that 1000 blacks died defending the United States in World War Two.

More than 250,000 whites did.

The Star's commitment to reparations should focus on them returning the many millions of dollars that their subscribers have wasted over the years.
Especially in the last decade, any money spent on this ridiculous rag was based more on home town pride than any serious attempt at receiving news.
Great way for the Star to disappear beneath the waves of irrelevance.
Sell the printing building and distribute the proceeds.
The only hope for a legacy!

If "they" decide to go forward with reparations, who gets them?
When will it end?
Equal opportunity does not guarantee equal outcome.

They got and are still getting reparations from LBJ's war on poverty. Stop the victim game or go back home to Africa what's stopping you?

My god the first Indian comment shows how dumb people are of their surroundings. Look up the richest black girl in History ( a KCMO resident BTW ) . Report back . We also didn't take all of America from them. Now look up defined borders, ownership and Nomadic cultures. LOL

I was right.

You can always count on the neanderthal, racist commenters here at this blog to add their ignorance and ugliness.

At least y'all are consistent.

And reliable.

If also hateful, ugly, uninformed, again, racist and just stupid.

I predicted as much when I saw the article in the Star.

TOP PHOTO -- MAKE AMERICA PAY REPARATIONS?

This is an issue whose time has expired. Any discussion that purports to consider Black Americans as permanent victims, unable to succeed and thrive in society is simply not honestly addressing the issue!!!

Anonymous said...

What's also predictable, Mo, is your boilerplate response to anything that challenges your fake woke-narrative. It's understandable why you don't allow comments on your own blog; you have no arguments and don't know how to debate or respond to wholly appropriate satire.

All you can do is fall back on 'racism, racism, racism', when reparations are themselves a racist absurdity deserving of mockery.

Run along now.

The final reparation calculations have been completed, and the results indicate:

Every African-American owes the U.S. Treasury $209,628.00 (rounded to nearest dollar).

Calculations were based upon the wasted federal outlay of taxpayer dollars attempting to remediate the failure of blacks to integrate themselves into society as productive citizens, from the LBJ administration to present day.

1:46 is right except for the insult to Neanderthals. And no, Andy, you don't get an exception for your relatives' sacrifice since the effects of slavery did not end with emancipation. Sorry.

In each black community give 1 person 10,000 dollars cash large bills. Give all the other black adults in said community a loaded .38 revolver. Then let the black community sort out who gets the money or just give cash to plan parenthood same results.

"...since the effects of slavery did not end with emancipation."
And THAT'S why there will never be reparations.

This is just the first volleys of a Star campaign for reparations for dead tree media, who has been subjected to the unfair circumstances of technology, lack of talent, and thinking you are the only game in town. It's coming. Just wait.

Anonymous said...

Star is dead, who cares what they say! As for
Black reparations, grow up, suck it up, and stop being the biggest pussies the world has known. Everyone who came to this country was discriminated against, taken into slavery, and dealt with extreme adversity. These people grew up, worked hard, and didn’t whine. If you’re a black person now and aren’t a complete f-up, you can achieve what you want. If you don’t like the US go
back to where your heritage originated. I’d be glad to help pay for it.

3:58: I doubt you are seriously interested, but I'll give you " Bandit Darville's" answer to everything: Go read a book. But at least I'll give you some suggestions: Richard Rothstein's "Color of Money" and Ira Katznelson's "When Affirmative Action Was White."

And yes. Both are by Jewish authors, but then so is the Bible.

Anonymous said...

I'm quite well read. I'm interested to hear your solutions.
Did you mean Rothstein's The Color of Law or Baradaran's The Color of Money?

If you weren't an actual slave, no reparations but you can have a tissue.

When Affirmative Action was White blames inequality on FDR's New Deal, Jim Crow, and the GI Bill. Come on! How about successful blacks? Shouldn't they have failed too? Or, maybe, there's something to be said for honesty.

You cant pay out anything. As you can't measure those that are 100% black, vs partly black/white, vs black/asian. They are few 100% blacks and many came over to the USA AFTER slavery ended - of their own free will. So how would you ever decide who to pay? And what?

Anonymous said...

4:47: "The Color of Law." The library has it and "When Affirmative Action Was White."

5:43: Many Blacks have been successful in spite of their situation. Just as many whites have been failures in spite of their situation. Many of the latter post on TKC, and we should be grateful to Tony for giving them something to do and keeping them out of polite society.

Reparations are coming. And just like before, the rich whites are gonna screw the poor whites. In antebellum times a minority of whites, the one's that could afford, owned slaves. When the Union came knocking, the Confederate aristocracy sent the poor whites out to battle as canon fodder.

This time, do you think the reparation cost is coming out of the hides of the billionaires? Think again. Amazon paid zero dollars Federal income tax last year. Owned by a bbillionaire.How much did you pay?

Reparations are coming, coming to keep the peace so the billionaires can keep on truckin'. Coming out of your tight white paycheck. And you're too triggered and race-proud to know you are being played again. Just hum along and whistle Dixie as your strummed like a one string banjo.

This message approved by Jeff Bezos and billionaires everywhere.
