Michael Eric Dyson Calls for
Whites to Have an I.R.A. –
‘Individual Reparations Account’

Cybercast News Service, by Mark Judge

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2017 1:24:06 PM

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

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.

Considering my family immigrated here just prior to WWI, we owe them nothing, as does anyone else. Consider welfare your reparations payment.

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.

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.

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?

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.

MY take is that black Americans OWE ME for all that their elected agents have stolen from ME.

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.

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!

This past week, Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald, a knowledgeable supporter of America’s criminal justice system and thoughtful critic of the Black Lives Matter movement, was repeatedly shouted down by protesters at UCLA, then silenced and forced to escape with a police escort the next day, during what should have been her talk at Claremont McKenna College.

The “Dying to Be a Martyr” multimedia lesson plan is available free of cost to teachers and students at PBS Learning Media, reports Justin Haskins at the Heartland Institute. It utilizes videos titled “Martyrdom,” “Suicide Bombing,” and “Israel and Palestine,” as well as internet sites and primary sources “to examine the roots of the Middle East conflict.” Students are asked to be able to understand

Sen. Chris Van Hollen introduced the “Customers Not Cargo Act” on CNN’s “New Day” Thursday in wake of the viral video of a passenger being forcibly removed from a United Airlines flight. The Maryland Democrat explained, “If you have a situation like this in the future the airline does not have the right to come up to a passenger and say to you ‘Hey you’ve gotta get off this airplane.’ “ He said airlines should increase the amount of money they’re willing to offer to get volunteers to give up their seats. “There will be a point that passengers do

A group of House Democrats are demanding the government suspend the security clearance granted to President Trump´s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, because he failed to disclose meetings he had with Russian officials during the transition period on security clearance forms. Last week it was reported by the New York Times that Kushner, who serves as senior adviser to Trump, omitted details of his meetings with Russian officials, including Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Sergey Gorkov, CEO of Russian state-owned bank Vnesheconombank, on an FBI questionnaire. Responding to that report, six Democrats, led by Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., have signed onto a

A Las Vegas-based Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official used his government credit card to purchase a $14,799 in gym memberships. A conservative advocacy group released documents purporting to show EPA contracting officer Kevin Broadnax bought a 37 year-long memberships at Super Sport gym on April 11, 2017. Broadnax used his government charge card to pay for his nearly $15,000 membership. The sheer amount of paperwork related to the transaction suggests that multiple EPA officials were aware of the purchase. Broadnax did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation. The Super Sport gym is open 24 hours a day and

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined other Bay Area Democrats Thursday to “honor the deep moral responsibility to save lives wherever and whenever we can.” She spoke at an event marking the start of a long-planned and long-delayed project: Construction on a $204-million suicide-prevention net, to be installed 20 feet below the roadbed of the Golden Gate Bridge, the famous landmark that connects San Francisco to Marin County. “In this Holy season of Easter and Passover, we recognize again and again, that every single life is so valuable,” Pelosi said on Thursday. “In every one of them a spark of divinity, in

Two of former President Obama´s top speechwriters have come down hard on President Trump´s speeches and speaking style and are urging him to stop "riffing" and try writing down his thoughts. "I don´t think it´s a great idea to just get up there and riff when you have no idea what you´re talking about," chief Obama speechwriter Cody Keenan told a Harvard University forum Wednesday night. (Video) "He´s certainly not the first person to try to wear the mantle of populism and riff from whatever comes to his mind," said Keenan. "But I also don´t think it´s a harbinger of a

Finally, a major, globally important summit that doesn’t involve our aggressively fearless leader or his restless-finger-syndrome–plagued Twitter feed. Instead, four members of what can only be described as American royalty had some fun in the sun, island-hopping around French Polynesia. There, isn’t that nice? A little dose of virtual vitamin D rather than doomsday proclamations and your Twitter feed full of stale United Airlines jokes? According to the Asbury Park Press via Tahiti Nua TV, former president Barack Obama (just saying his name feels better), Michelle Obama, Bruce Springsteen, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Hanks are in the South Pacific enjoying

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., says she takes every opportunity to say hello to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., but he has refused to speak with her since her notorious February battle with Republicans over the nomination of Jeff Sessions to be attorney general. The progressive senator spoke about her experience with McConnell in an interview with the Boston Globe, while promoting her upcoming book "This Fight Is Our Fight." The book reportedly ends right before Republicans voted to silence her during the debate over Sessions nomination. A move that was backed by McConnell. The action gained nationwide attention, resulting

After U.S. forces dropped "the mother of all bombs" on an ISIS tunnel complex in Afghanistan, Hollywood director Josh Fox railed against the decision to deploy the military´s largest non-nuclear device, which reportedly killed several dozen ISIS militants. "Atrocity. Murder. Abomination. When will we learn that only love stops hate, and bombings only create more ISIS," Fox wrote in a tweet. "Love your enemy. Don´t create more of them. Teachers, diplomacy, culture and aid helps peace. Bombs don´t," he added. (Snip) On "Outnumbered" today, Meghan McCain remarked that she lived in Los Angeles for two years, and this is how the liberal,

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) renewed her call for impeaching President Trump during Saturday´s Tax March in Washington. "I don´t respect this president. I don´t trust this president. He´s not working in the best interests of the American people," Waters said. "I will fight every day until he is impeached," she added, before leading the crowd in chants of "impeach 45." Waters has been among the most vocal critics of Trump in Congress, and she has repeatedly signaled that she would be willing to impeach the president. Days after Trump took office, Waters said her “greatest desire is to lead [Trump] right

The President promised to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS. On Thursday he did just that. (Photo) The U.S. deployed a 21,000 pound GBU-43B conventional bomb in the Nangarhar Province on Thursday. 36 ISIS fighters were killed in the strike. (Tweet) Democrats are confused with the strategy. They’re not used to a president that kills the enemy. Senator Elizabeth Warren cannot understand this foreign policy. “What is the strategy?” (Video/Tweet) After eight years of Obama it’s understandable that Democrats would be confused of a strategy that kills the enemy.

My wife, who has different politics from me, subscribes to The New Yorker magazine. I often read it, or at least give it a glance; as the Chinese military strategist Sun-Tzu said, “Know yourself, know your enemies.” To be fair, on occasion I find a long-form article that I can settle into like a warm bath, as Tom Wolfe described the Sunday New York Times, and know blessed sleep will be upon me soon. The New Yorker is really a piece of work: an oddball mixture of archaic English grammar and style, and the newest and most fashionable politically correct

The former Federal Election Commission chairwoman Ann M. Ravel says that political speech must be controlled on social media. She presented her remarks in a speech at UC Berkeley, calling for regulations against “fake news.” Speaking at an event called “Future of Democracy,” Ravel argued the proliferation of “fake news” and political advertising on platforms like Facebook influenced elections. She warned that the lack of disclosure by the creators of these campaigns was becoming a huge problem. “We know that there’s a lot of campaigning that’s moved to the internet, whether it’s through fake news or just outright advertising and

Mayor de Blasio deprecated the Charging Bull sculpture in Lower Manhattan on Friday as a “celebration of unfettered capitalism” — while defending the Fearless Girl statue in front of the bull for “standing up to injustice.” The mayor made the comment on his weekly WNYC radio show, where he also vowed that the city would fight a lawsuit by the creator of Charging Bull to get rid of Fearless Girl. (Snip) “’Fearless Girl’ to so many people means standing up to injustice, the empowerment of women…,” he added. “We think what has been done is absolutely legally appropriate on the city’s

An extremely large percentage of America’s 326.5 million citizens did not run for president last year. Only one of us non-candidates, however, decided to write a new book to explain why. If you’re one of the many Americans who hadn’t thought to wonder why Elizabeth Warren did not run for president — or don’t really care — join the crowd. Warren´s new book about her non-candidacy comes out next week and would-be buyers are not yet lining up. The book is heavily biographical, which means Warren is definitely running for the presidential nomination of what’s left of the Democrat Party

The sight of a United Airlines’ passenger being dragged down the aisle offers a lesson beyond customer service and public relations. The lesson is simple but profound. Societies, like airlines, are far better off relying on incentives and voluntary transactions than on diktat and coercion. Most comments have understandably focused on the airline’s disturbing use of force, followed by the clueless CEO blaming the passenger before throwing in the towel and apologizing. Since this is America, the passenger has already lawyered up, so United’s headache will linger. Beyond these unforced errors lies a deeper lesson, one that applies not only to customer
