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
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare´s regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules. "What I understood her to be saying is that there´s no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on
In a last-minute bid to woo conservatives ahead of a high-stakes vote on Thursday on repealing and replacing Obamacare, House leaders are considering gutting more Obamacare regulations. (Snip) Previously, House leaders have argued that the regulations could not be nixed, because doing so would blow up the bill in the Senate, where Republicans will have to pass the measure under restrictive rules to enable it to clear with a simple majority. But a House leadership aide told the Washington Examiner that on Wednesday, Republicans received new information from the Senate, indicating that axing the regulations wouldn´t automatically doom the bill from
No, Sebastian Gorka is not a goose-stepping Nazi. (Snip) The personal attacks aimed at Gorka and Michael Anton, both key national-security aides to President Trump, aren’t the only false stories in the left’s smear campaign against these two. They have been painted in outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Politico and the Atlantic as Islamophobic hardliners hellbent on dragging us into more Mideast wars. But that bears little resemblance to their writing, which the Trump haters haven’t bothered to explore in any depth. A closer reading of their voluminous writings reveals a cold-eyed realism about global affairs
People who are HIV positive have long been required to disclose this status before engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse. Considering the life-threatening condition caused by HIV, it stands to reason that potential partners have a right to know, since the disease is easily passed through sexual contact. (Snip) Because of "the stigma." To save the hurt feelings of the dishonest partner: In a test of shifting attitudes about HIV, a group of state lawmakers has proposed that it no longer be a felony for someone to knowingly expose others to the disease by engaging in unprotected sex and not telling the
These days, it’s not enough to just bring Spot to the groomer. If you really want your dog to dazzle — and you have a chunk of cash to spend — you can take him in for a nip-tuck. Edgard Brito, a São Paulo vet and plastic surgeon, told DuJour that he wants his procedures to make pets more lovable to their owners. (Snip) Brito, who’s been called the world’s go-to dog surgeon, performs procedures to glam up canines’ appearances: Botox to perk up the ears of a Doberman, nose jobs, face-lifts and testicular implants such as Neuticles to help
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
Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military
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
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police
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,
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and
Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
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
David Brock, founder of the left-leaning Media Matters for America non-profit and a longtime Hillary Clinton ally, suffered a heart attack on Tuesday, according to a press release. "David Brock suffered a heart attack while working in the Washington DC office early Tuesday," the release said on Wednesday. It added that he was quickly treated and stabilized. "He was quickly transported to a local hospital, received prompt medical treatment, and we are looking forward to a swift recovery," the release said. Brock is a former conservative journalist who now heads a network of liberal nonprofits aimed at combating Republicans
WASHINGTON -- Former President Obama surfaced this morning to defend the Affordable Care Act as House Republicans tried to wrangle last-minute votes for today´s promised vote on the American Health Care Act. "Ultimately, after a century of talk, decades of trying, and a year of bipartisan debate, our generation was the one that succeeded" in passing healthcare reform, Obama declared in a statement issued by his office. "We finally declared that in America, healthcare is not a privilege for a few, but a right for everybody." "Since the law passed, the pace of healthcare inflation has slowed dramatically," he added. "Prices are
