Frobama Administration Playing the Race Card Yet Again...

Some fine and dandy items concerning the reverse-racism that goes on in the minds of many of our new national leaders and representatives:

Slavery Reparations Act (WTF? GET OVER IT!)

Taxation Without Representation and Racism at its best


God help us.

Wow. You really dismiss reparations for slavery quickly, without even a nod to the arguments for the idea.

I don't believe in reparations, but the U.S. has never atoned for its history of slavery, and black families in this country have never been compensated for everything they lost to slavery, and the opportunities they were deprived of during the century of brutal discrimination which followed.

The point is that it would only throw our country even further into debt than we already are. It's no better an idea than this "bailout" plan that everybody's talking about.

And I looked at your profile.
I don't doubt your knowledge on the subject, just your motives.

That's fair enough. I just don't understand people who simply say "get over it," when we know the country isn't over it.

Really? What do you worry that my motives for making that comment could be?

James,
IIRC the last living negro slave in the US died in 1945.
4 generations have had the chance and every opportunity (sometimes more of an opportunity than poor or middle-class white folks)to better themselves yet have screwed themselves over in just about every way imaginable.

Sorry but your argument that people aren't over it doesn't carry weight. Anyone who claims they "need" reparations for something neither they nor their parents (or grandparents) have ever experienced need to get a life. As in, a decent work-ethic.
