I pay reparations to the county.
They come mow the ditches every couple of weeks.
I’m reparating the ditches.
That is the whole point of the new “White privilege” meme. It doesn’t matter if your great, great granddaddy owned slaves or not. It doesn’t matter if your grandparents immigrated here in the last century. What matters is that you are White and therefore implicitly benefit from a legacy of racism against the Black man. So, you need to be made to pay.
In a way, it’s genius because it “solves” so many problems inherent with asking for reparations. Of course, the one problem it doesn’t solve is the Civil War it will start if it’s ever implemented. People, like me, who followed the law their whole lives will instantly become criminals when we fight back.
Leeches like Coates ought to get down on their hands and knees and thank God they were born in America rather than some typical, sub-Saharan, African s..thole.
I would support reparations on the condition that the recipients leave. After all the case being made is that life in America is unbearable for African -Americans. The recipients should be given enough money to set themselves in the African country of their choice (or that will take them).
We could pay for at least some of this with a tax on wealthy African-Americans These wealthy African-Americans, unlike the rest, have benefited greatly by being in the United States. They should be glad to help out their less fortunate brethren; they might decide to forgo reparations, remain in the United States, and accept their acquired wealth as ‘account paid in full.’
The excess expense above the amount raised by the wealth-tax described above would compensated by the 50 percent fall in violent crime, 40 percent reduction in the welfare case-load, and end to massive expenditures to close ‘education gaps.’ I would consider all of these previous wealth redistributions to African-Americans as a sunk cost, and would not seek to recover them from any reparations paid.
The United States might never win another world sprinting competition but for most sports we could probably get by (Teams of White men once competed in basketball). White people have created (and do create) popular music and entertainment, so I am sure we could do so in the future. I also imagine that Cadillac dealers and gold jewelry sellers could find new customers. Indeed with resources freed up from criminal justice, food-stamps, and education we might have more wealth ‘to spread around.’
So yes, I support reparations for African-Americans even Ta-Nehisi Coates, if he would have the guts to accept them under the rules outlined.
The reparations thing is floated as a cover for redistribution which is going on now.
Pat Buchanan had an excellent article about reparations a few years back.
They have already cost us enough.
The idea of reparations is just another black race pimp scam to raid the treasury.
Any white stupid enough to fall for the “White Privlege” hoax or to develop a case of white guilt for any other reason is too gullible and foolish to be taken seriously and should not be allowed to vote or have contact with innocent children.
