Reparations… Again?

It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone. It’s not unusual for the sky to be blue. It’s not unusual for the Patriots to cheat. And it is not unusual for Democrats to lie. And they are once again. Democrats are offering bribes to Blacks for their votes.

Democrats/Socialists propose to take your money and give it to a group of people, based on their skin color. This is the definitive definition of “identity politics”. It’s clear that the Democrats still live with the anguish of their party and it’s ownership of the slavery issue, and they want to make amends for their inhumanity, with your money, not theirs.

Presidential hopefuls Socialist Democrat Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren are offering “reparations” to blacks if they win the election. Booker is offering $50,000 to every black child in a taxpayer funded scholarship account.

Are these the same “reparations” that the Democrat party’s hopefuls offered Blacks during the 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, 1992, 1988, etc. election cycles? Those reparations? The reparations Democrats promised to give you then, and then, and then?

The Democrats have promised “reparations” for over 60 years but have never delivered or even brought it to a vote in Congress? After making this same promise to Blacks for decades? But this time it’ll be “different? Not likely.

Reparations would involve the federal government’s acknowledgment of the ongoing legacy of slavery and discrimination and providing payment to those affected. Policy experts say it could cost several trillion dollars.

So we’re to pay trillions of dollars, say ten trillion ($10,000,000,000,000) to all blacks, even though not all are descendants of slaves. Slavery ended in 1863, which was 156 years ago, count ’em. How can we determine who is and who is not a slave descendant? DNA tests and a deep investigation into each and every black person in the country?

Or do we just give all the Nigerians, Somalis, and other Africans that came here 15 years ago their “fair share” for their collective pain and suffering? It would be an act of racism to not give them their $50,000 if all the other Blacks got $50,000 wouldn’t it?

So if we eradicate slavery from the history books, in the same way Democrats have erased America’s culture and history from the history books, then there never was any slavery and no reparations need be offered. That’s another possibility.

If Blacks vote for the Conservative candidate they are voting for the people who have created the economic boom we’re witnessing now. Take a look around. People are working at jobs not at begging on the street corners. The restaurants and bars and nightclubs are full. Stores are reinvigorated.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA): “We must confront the dark history of slavery and government-sanctioned discrimination in this country that has had many consequences, including undermining the ability of black families to build wealth in America for generations,” she told the Times. “We need systemic, structural changes to address that.”

It is in the historical records that slavery ended over 150 years ago. Not last month or in the ’90s. One hundred and fifty years ago. And we’ve done nothing since then?

What about the trillions spent on social and welfare programs since the early ’60s. That’s real taxpayer’s money confiscated by the government and redistributed to those unable or unwilling to provide for themselves.

So Democrats/Socialists want to take tax money from all the working people of America and give it to a group of people, based on their skin color. And this is meant to be the punishment to the ancestors of the white Southern Democrats that were the slave owners.

There are several problems with their proposed noble deed.

  • Over 50% of White Americans ancestors arrived in America AFTER slavery was abolished, so why should they be punished?
  • Over 50% of Black Americans ancestors arrived in America AFTER slavery was abolished, so why should they be rewarded?
  • How can present-day Americans be held responsible for the sins of White Democrats 150+ years ago? Why not hold the Democrat Party responsible?
  • DNA and Geneology tests for everyone! Track everyone back to when their ancestors came to the US. That’s the only fair way, and extremely expensive and time-consuming.

What would have been manageable situation 125 years ago is now beyond manageable. While slavery is a stain on America, that was 150+ years ago. There can be no collective guilt, no collective punishment, no collective largess.
