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.
Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News. Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President
A Utah couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on a dream tour of Europe are among the victims of the London terror attack. Kurt Cochran, 54, died after being thrown over Westminster Bridge onto a walkway beneath it when an ISIS terrorist mowed him down in his Hyundai 4x4. His 46-year-old wife Melissa was also struck. She lay frozen on the bridge with blood pouring from her head as strangers consoled her while they waited for an ambulance. Mrs Cochran remains in hospital in the UK where she is being treated for a broken leg and rib. They were the first people hit when
Open door immigration policies put in place by the Obama administration were cited a cause for the alleged rape of a 14-year-old student inside Maryland high school by two illegals, according to the head of the Border Patrol union. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, cited the former administration´s "catch and release" program for letting the two illegals charged in the rape into the United States. In Senate testimony, he said, "Had we done our job that 14-year-old girl would never have been raped. Period. That´s all there is to it." Two illegal immigrants have been charged
Trump presidential transition officials had their communications monitored and “unmasked” by the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday, offering the first major piece of evidence of possible illegal activity by Obama officials against Donald Trump as president-elect. Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, said Mr. Trump’s own communications might have been monitored. All of the information appears to have been scooped up legally and incidentally, meaning the Trump officials weren’t the targets. They may have been gathered by foreign intelligence and then shared with the U.S. under existing agreements, one lawmaker said. But at some point
Congressman Peter King (R-N.Y.) called the revelation that President Trump´s transition team was identified during incidental surveillance activity "extremely significant." King said the fact that Trump´s name appeared in the reports obtained by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was one of a few violations that were committed. Trump nor his associates were being wiretapped, King said. Instead the surveillance focused on foreign individuals who referenced them. "Any time your [American´s] name comes up, it´s supposed to be masked. Reports were written with names of these people and details," King said, adding that the information was then spread around
The race to build the world’s tallest skyscraper has reached new heights - and taken a turn in direction. Designs for ‘The Big Bend’, a slender tower that would transform Manhattan’s skyline have been unveiled. Described as the ‘longest building in the world’, the project´s concept drawings reveal a skyscraper reaching an apex then curving back down. And featuring an elevator system that can travel in curves, horizontally and in loops. In a bid to work around the challenges of New York’s zoning laws, design studio Oiio has imagined an innovative concept to straddle across Billionnaire’s Row on 57th Street.
Senator John McCain said on MSNBC tonight that there needs to be a special committee for the Russia investigation because Congress does not presently have the “credibility to handle this alone.” McCain told Greta Van Susteren that the big split today between Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff shows a “chasm” between the two leaders of the House Intelligence Committee. He added that there is no substantiation to what either of them He said what’s been happening today is somewhat “bizarre” and said that he thinks it’s time for a special committee because “no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts
Chelsea Clinton´s chief of staff complained on Thursday that her boss just can´t catch a break. Bari Lurie is Clinton´s chief of staff at the Clinton Foundation, where the former first daughter is vice chair. Lurie took to Twitter on Thursday to lament that Clinton, like her mother, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, "never gets a break." (Tweet) The tweet included a link to a op-ed published Thursday in the Los Angeles Times, titled "Just like her mother, Chelsea Clinton never gets a break." The article´s author, Ann Friedman, defends Clinton from her critics, arguing that she and her
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. My vote will
In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon. Many of the reporters present didn’t seem to
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
