Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

It sure is a RACIST kinda summer here in America! One of BLM’s demands is that all blacks be paid $1000/month in reparations. This would be financed through higher taxes, apparently on the entire tax base which comprises multiple descendants of and actual non-slave owning immigrants.

That's one way to guarantee race relations will be even worse.

That is one of the dumbest ideas ever!

That is one of the dumbest ideas ever! And it will never happen.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Not citizens. The us government and corps. That profited should pay for services rendered. Surprising that so many conservatives believe honest work should be left uncompensated. I guess they feel only whites deserve such treatment.giveup.gif

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

I demand all Germans, Italians and Japanese Americans pay me in reparations because I lost three family members in WW2.

It is an issue that will never happen and only turns off voters. Liberals are foolish to keep bringing it up.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Liberals are foolish period. Liberalism is a mental disease.

Reparations will be in the form of investments in business, scholarships, urban renewal et al, not personal checks. It would be foolish to give every crack whore and gangster lowlife a thousand bucks. Seriously, that ain't gonna happen.

Is there any black cannibis growers in California, or are they all white and asian?

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

All white. You're right. White is right. Like I said, they're white.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Why do I owe any more in taxes to pay for one group of people I’ve never personally wronged?

One can certainly argue blacks have been discouraged from achieving success due to how society treats them. One can argue it would be value accretive to boost the economic success of blacks as they’re the largest minority. But this notion that *I* owe it to blacks to pay more in taxes because of the sins of a bunch of dead white peoples is ludicrous. Even if it is a net benefit to society, it is not right to impose this burden on people. It is almost as wrong as slavery was.

How about this. Everyone in the country votes yes or nay for reparations. If you vote “yea,” you get included in the tax base to finance the reparations. If you vote “nay,” you don’t have to make donations to black education.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

You do know that black households have half the net worth of white households, right?

Why is this? Is it because blacks are lazy? Because blacks are profligates?

Or could it just be that slavery has impacted blacks, that labor and wealth were stolen from them, and they have a deficit which may take at least two centuries to overcome?

And since that wealth was stolen from them, it went to somebody, right?

Could it be that whites have twice the net worth of blacks because white families have benefited from that stolen wealth? That stolen wealth was passed down from generation to generation and enriches whites today?

We don't even have to mention that the U.S. government was complicit in this, and that government is an institution which still exists today and should by all that is right be held accountable.

It's about compensating for theft. Do you not believe a debt must be paid back?

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

No one I am related to has owned a slave. Not to my knowledge, at least. Maybe there are a few kinky bastards, but why am I being asked to compensate someone for a theft I did not commit?

My ancestors were the victims of xenophobic sentiment as well. I demand reparations.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Half my ancestors came from Greece. They were hated too. And they never owned slaves. But the odd thing is that after a few generations we've been give that same white privilege. Blacks have not.

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Oh so because you’re doing well, all white people are doing well and because white people were slave owners in the past, all whites benefit enough from white privilege such that they carry a material degree of blame for systemic racism against blacks.

Yeah, no.

Lots of white families are not well off. We are in the middle of a potentially deep recession and a pandemic. Businesses are failing all over the country. A lot of people aren’t working and are struggling to feed their kids. And you’re proposing we increase the tax burden on them now!? Are you ****ing insane? Do you want the country to collapse?

I know you’re not insane, Gameboy, but the idea of reparations is questionable at best and in terms of practicality, now is an exceptionally bad time for this kind of a burden to be placed on the largest segment of our economy. Sorry by that’s a hard “no.”

Re: Do whites, Asians, Latinos owe black people reparations?

Every expenditure doesn't require a tax increase. I have an idea. Why not stop throwing billions away in the Middle East and invest it in infrastructure, i.e. rebuild the black community with reparation investments? It benefits the country as a whole.

And, it rights a wrong and forces our government to take responsibility for enslaving its own citizens.

As an American do you not want to hold our government accountable for violating the rights of us, the American people? Should not a lesson be taught?

I think there’s a case to be made for this but the presentation has left a lot to be desired.

Racist.

No, they do not!

As the radical leftist Saul Alinksy taught, when you can't win a debate with facts and logic, simply smear your opponent. You have just done this, which means you've conceded that you have lost this debate.

Thanks. I accept your apology.

Hmm, our families are from the same region of the country, which means we could be distant cousins…..

So part of that inheritance is probably MINE! Where's my 15%!?!? confused.gif

COONdi Rice is considered a national treasure among the white racist conservative crowd. None of my grandparents were ever overtly bigoted or expressed any sort of outward racial prejudice towards anyone. That could be because of our mixed ethnic heritage and 3 out of 4 of them being partially white themselves.

I don't blame your grandmother, I would have threatened to divorce him too!
