Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I
Comments: And you thought these arrogant, obnoxious racists couldn´t get worse!! This is just stunning! I´m sure that Americans want their hard earned money given to feral animals like those in Chicago, BLM, etc. NOT. I´m sick and tired of their victimhood BS! This guy is certifiable and they act like he is so brilliant. ´You ain’t got to ask the government??´ It´s enough to make you puke.
I have no problem with this idea. Let anyone who thinks they owe reparations create such an account. Then they can stop trying to get the government to force people who never wanted, or had, slaves to give money to people who never were slaves in reparation for the fact that some (a very small number) people once owned slaves in the U.S.
Well, let´s see: my taxes pay for EBT cards, welfare, Section 8 housing, free schools, medicaid, free emergency room, obama phones, and other freebies that I am forgetting right now. I don´t owe you anything.
Money is not the answer. Uncontrolled and unlimited underclass breeding is the culprit. Making babies for an 18 year income stream, a complete lack of parental guidance and avoidance of worthwhile educational standards and you got what we GOT!!! Just saying.
It is your white privilege speaking. What privileged white professor says " you AINT got to Ask the government. " Sir. Your command of the English language tells me you should have paid attention in English class". As far as me making reparations to people who had nothing to do with being a slave, I can only say, go jump into a lake. I was not alive at the time of slavery and neither were they.
We´ve been held as captive slaves all over the streets of America for decades into the 21st century. We fear for our very lives because blacks have criminalized our lives with intimidation, ceaseless demands and violence.
Tell me, how many blacks would have gone to war and died for whites in the Civil War if the situation had been reversed?
With all the handouts your folks have gotten over the years, YOU OWE US A BUNDLE!
By the way, since ´Slavery´ is Involuntary Servitude, when do I get reparations for being drafted into the Army. I had a Hut and Food and enough pay to buy cigarettes your folks had the same, so where are MINE?
I´ve been making "donations" to minorities my whole life for things which I had no responsibility for. Slavery, Jim Crow, segregation: all brought to us by the demoncrats, who want everyone else to pay for their actions, good or bad. I´m done making "donations" of my time and effort, in lost opportunities, employment, promotions, and scholarships I never got because of Affirmative Action. I finally have a well-paying job and I´m keeping it all. Go beg from someone else, if you are too stupid or lazy to get an education and a job.
Considering my family immigrated here after 1900 and I´ve had a substantial portion of my earnings confiscated and redistributed to what government statistics say are still society´s dregs because of crime (I have been armed-robbed twice by black "youths"), fatherless families, and work ethics, MY take is that black Americans OWE ME for all that their elected agents have stolen from ME.
The account is so far over drawn all black institutions and individuals owe billions already for all the services and freebees they have received over the years. When are they going to start to pay the country back?
Give a black racist con man enough money to say something and sure enough just let me a trained monkey it will say it. If this is the collective intelligence of the minority , you are wasting your money.
I´m confused. Somebody please explain who deserves a share of my retirement fund: The descendants of those who worked on my great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great Grandfather´s farm? Those people worked hard, as did many-greats Grandfather. When they were freed, well before the civil war, most kept our unusual family name, many accepted the plot of land and home they were offered, the training in a livelihood.Many began businesses and trades that supported them and their offspring comfortably. Some of their descendants became famous and very wealthy, as professionals, athletes, actors and scholars. They, and we, did well. Their so-distant cousins back in Africa who didn´t get captured by their warring neighbors, sold to Arab slavers, transported by Portuguese sailors, sold again by Dutch traders, how are they getting along these days? Still living in mud huts, warring with neighboring tribes, dying of pestilence and starvation? Hello??? Y´all are very welcome.
What about all the descendants of black slave holders here in the States? The first slave holder in Georgia was a black man. They gotta pay their fair share, Can we deduct all the welfare benefits and charges for room and board from black prisioners too?
I believe in Reparations but not because of slavery. Reparations should be paid to Vietnam Veterans who risked their lives only to have politicians pull the plug on the war.For a start all these individuals can be readily identified unlike "blacks" who might not have any connection to slavery or have just an ounce of black blood or whatever. We Vietnam Vets were screwed royally by being sent to that war and then spit upon when we returned. I would say that $1,000,000 tax free per Vietnam tour would suffice.
I hear you #18.... They´ve destroyed so much that was built by good people, workers who built solid brick structures that were meant to last forever but the ghetto-dwelling minority types RUINED THEM ALL, have you ever walked through a black neighborhood in Chicago or Detroit??????Seen what they´ve done to these wonderful brick buildings?
Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, Ferguson, Atlanta, Watts, LA and Baltimore for starters.....feel free to add.
I´ll submit that any reparations that are owed are owed by YOU NEGROES with the 73% illegitimate birth rate, the violence, the ignorance, the ebonics, the rap, the knock-out game,Al Sharpton, the Mall riots, the 4 blacks who just tortured that poor white kid!!!!!!!!!!!!
If they ALL left today I wouldn´t miss one of them...I mean it.
The federal judge who ruled against President Trump’s effort to withhold money from so-called sanctuary cities had no business presiding over the case. The appearance of partiality should have been enough for Judge William Orrick to disqualify himself. His established record of political and personal bias demanded recusal. I’m betting he didn’t even consider it. Orrick came into the case with glaring conflicts of interest. First, he was an accomplished “bundler” for Barack Obama, raising over $200,000 and personally donating more than $30,000. Later, he was rewarded with a federal judgeship. So, his political favoritism is more conspicuous than it
In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities. The self-professed “Vandals of UT” say they are responding to no specific incident but “the everyday crisis that is rape culture,
Katie wrote yesterday about Bill Nye´s rather, um, abrupt departure from his "The Science Guy" persona from the 90s. Nye, the star of a new Netflix show called "Bill Nye Saves The World," also has some rather interesting thoughts on human population. Namely, he mused over the idea that people in the developed world should be "penalized" for having "extra kids" who will then potentially contribute to climate change. Nye dedicated the 13th and final episode of the first season of Bill Nye Saves The World to discussing overpopulation and how the world´s population has grown rapidly since he was
Rep. Michele Hoitenga (R) said that the story of a Detroit-area doctor being charged with genital mutilation of young girls motivated her to sponsor a proposal that would ban the use of foreign countries’ laws in Michigan courtrooms. Although House Bill 4499 does not mention it by name, Hoitenga also wrote in an email to her colleagues that Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who faces federal charges of genital mutilation, was “practicing a fundamental version of Sharia Law.” Democrats and civil rights activists didn’t wait to pounce on the legislation that Hoitenga offered April 17. Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D) immediately accused the
Founder of the TMZ celebrity gossip and news website Harvey Levin blasted the media during a speaking engagement at the National Association of Broadcasters´ annual conference on Monday for criticizing his meeting with President Donald Trump last month. (Snip) Levin said he went to the White House to discuss a project and other issues, but then pointed out the "bullying in traditional media." "When you pretend like you are objective, but you´re not, and you are angry and you are trying to kill and bully, I think that is killing and I don´t think they know it yet, but I
The Senate took part in a rare White House briefing on Wednesday to hear what senior leaders described as "an urgent national security threat" posed by North Korea´s nuclear and missile programs. (Snip) New steps by the administration will include the imposition of additional economic sanctions. "The United States seeks stability and the peaceful denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We remain open to negotiations towards that goal. However, we remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies," Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Director of Intelligence Dan Coats said in a joint statement after the briefing.
Despite regularly ridiculing the United Nations and repeatedly proposing a scaled-back U.S. role in it, President Donald Trump struck a very different tone this week, calling for empowering the controversial UN dictators club to somehow “solve” the North Korea issue, Syria, and other problems. Speaking at a meeting of UN Security Council diplomats convened at the White House on Monday, Trump demanded that the UN be ready to impose new sanctions if Communist Chinese-backed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un does not cooperate. Ironically, the dictatorship in Beijing — North Korea´s strongest ally — holds a veto-wielding seat on the
President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. WATCH: (Video) In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. “Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
The “Antifa” far left Communist group has managed to get an entire parade and carnival canceled in Portland because the Multnomah County Republicans were going to be in the parade. (Photo) The communists threatened to riot, loot, assault people at the parade. The festival people decided to cancel the entire weekend of activities, which was going to be this weekend due to the threats of violence by the leftist group. The Antifa group promised to rush the parade and drag away the Republicans. “We will have two hundred or more people rush into the parade into the middle and drag
A vicious brawl, involving more than 50 teenage boys and girls, erupted at a Florida mall. The disturbing video of the fight was shared on social media, featuring a large group of teens pummeling each other outside a Rue 21 clothing store inside Orange Park Mall. The Clay County Sheriff´s Office said the incident happened Saturday. In the footage, several people are seen punching a girl on a couch. Behind them another group is seen fighting as a woman appears to try and calm things down. A third and fourth group of teens are also seen fighting in the background.
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
