Biden Adviser: White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Reparations For African-Americans
From what rock do these parasitical fools come out from under??
You know what I have to tell Cedrick; GGAFJ. Why the hell should the American people in 2021 be compelled to pay reparation for something that happened over 200 years ago?? It does not make sense.
Do the relatives that are related to the Black Slave Owners get a pass??
Of these, 3,776 free Negroes owned 12,907 slaves, out of a total of 2,009,043 slaves owned in the entire United States, so the numbers of slaves owned by black people over all was quite small by …
They claim there were not many slave owners, BUTT 3,776 black slave owners owning 12,907 slaves is a substantial number. If there were 10, that would have been 10 too many.
Get real folks. Where the hell is the end to what some parasites want. Their new four letter word they hate is WORK.
Isn’t our country in bad enough shape because of all the corrupted social service that are GIVEN to those that do not need them?? The numbers are in the billions and we do not need another give-away. It is a well know fact that many of the reparation deals made with the Indians and other nationalities turned into a quagmire.
Not only were the funds that were awarded to Indians squandered, but were misappropriated by the guardians of the funds and never reached the intended parties.
The results were disappointing for Native Americans. The commission paid out about $1.3 billion, the equivalent of less than $1,000 for each Native American in the United States at the time the commission dissolved in 1978.
“On one level, it was remarkable,” said Melody McCoy, a lawyer for the Native American Rights Fund, a nonprofit group that has represented tribes in hundreds of major cases. “Congress listened to the claims of tribal leaders.”
But, Ms. McCoy said, the government took a paternalistic view, and kept Native Americans from having direct control of the funds, in the belief they were not “competent to receive such large amounts of money.”
“They did not make those awards, whether it was $200 million, $20 million or $20,000 — they held that money in trust accounts,” she said.
A separate agreement, struck with Congress in 1971, led to the biggest award — $962 million worth of land in Alaska, some 44 million acres — in return for Indians, Eskimos and Aleuts relinquishing their aboriginal claims to the rest of the state.
Once again, the compensation was not awarded directly; instead, the land was put in the control of corporations, and the beneficiaries were given shares of stock in them.
People have to work and develop a sense of pride for themselves and their families. The FREE mode of living that so many Americans have been used to for generations, has to be put to rest. Many kids that were brought up under social services system never learn what it is to be responsible. FREE is not the answer.
Although some other nationalities were treated poorly, not nearly as bad as the blacks, Irish – Polish – Italian – Jews – Japanese and so on; when will it be their turn to collect.
Should the blacks not have to pay all of the property damage that was destroyed by rioting through the years. They should NOT. People have to be evaluated on an individual basis.
Folks; blame me for what I do directly, not what some nut-case did 200 years ago.
Is a kid a bad person or to be held accountable that has their old man in jail?? Same principal.
Should every black person in this country be held accountable for all the crimes committed by their people?? Hell no!! Turn around is fair play.
Put this give-away to rest and start focusing on the real problems this country has. There has to be restrictions put on the fools as to how the BLOW the country’s money.
#Reparation is not the answer. It is just another #handout to make conditions worse than they are.
