Seeing that I have no past relatives in this country .... If I have to chip in with the reparations, how many slaves can I have and for how long? I got a crap load of work here on my place and that may save me renting an excavator and buying another chain saw.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

Time to move on

True.

I still have several aunties who were physically forced to go to boarding school in Santa Fe, horse drawn carriage by the government.
My parents couldn't speak any language other than English while in school. Heck, Natives were the last to get voting rights and seen as legal citizens until the 70's or 60's. They were considered and given citizenship IF the went into the military


Natives were a special group for citizenship purposes. Before a change in the law, they were considered citizens of foreign nations, the tribes they belonged to.

Now, Native Americans (Amerindians) have dual citizenship, US and tribal.

This has always chapped my hide where nobody living today is even remotely responsible for the sins of our past.. In essence this is a lazy beggars mentality with hand outs and entitlements disguised as a civil rights warm and cozy feel good bill. It's been said many times before all reparations were payed in full by the blood and lives lost in the civil war. Get a job and earn your living like everybody else and stop blaming society or history for your lot in life. If you're having a rough time in this world it's likely caused by the bad choices you've made. I owe you nothing.

My father was sold out to the neighbors as a young teen.
He spent the summers at a local farm working 6 days a week in the potato fields.
Then farm chores and wood for the farm on Sunday.
His father was payed $.25 a day and Sunday was traded for room and board.


Seems like a white person is the root of all evil in most racial minorities.


Read about the many behavioral studies in species overpopulation.

Cherokee were known to kill all fighting age men, children age 3-10 were taken as slaves, women raped often gang raped and then killed or kept as sex slaves. If your a Texan and your family goes back far enough... who knows Cherokees may owe you some reparations.

Black slavery in America was started by a black man. Black on black slavery has existed in Africa long before there were American colonies. The Jews were enslaved in Egypt. Slavery has existed in every continent in the world since forever. But you'd think all slavery in the world has been at the hands of white people of European descent by today's standards. Just another attempt to skew and reshape history. Slavery in America is a sad dark spot in our history that nobody is proud of, but the notion of reparations to black people today is insulting. It implies that they are incapable of making something of their lives without being treated like they have a disability. I know and have had the honor to serve with many fine successful black people, and not a single one of them ever needed a handout.

Darn it. I guess renting that excavator is going to be cheaper after all then.

From birth on American slaves never had to worry about shelter, food, clothing, or health care... it was provided them by their owners. The yankees believed that once free, they would learn to care for themselves. And some most certainly did. But for whatever reason, many did not. And those that did not, also raised children incapable or unwilling to care for themselves. So now, nearly 200 years later, many descendants of slaves are still unable or unwilling to. The only difference is now, instead of that cost being shouldered by a person who was getting work in return for it, it's now shouldered by the American tax payers, who get nothing for it. On top of getting no return on their forced investment, they receive hate, resentment, and demands from the people whose lives are dependent on the money they provide. It's crazy when you really think about it.

What's missing from this discussion about the recent call for reparations is that it is not coming from the descendants of slaves.
It is coming from the members of the political party which invented and perfected slavery. They are still practicing it by insisting that people of color are not capable of making it without assistance from their government programs. Why is that? Are they implying that people of color are defective?
Racism cannot be better defined by that line of thinking.
This is exactly why I have become racist myself.
I hate every one of those white people who have systematically destroyed the black family. I am talking about what they have done in my lifetime.
