    Default A CASE FOR REPARATIONS!

    250 years of slavery. 90 years of Jim Crow. 60 years of separate but equal. 35 years of racist housing policy. Until you all reckon with your compounding moral debts, America will never be whole.

    Most Blacks are forgiving people. We aren't looking for a check in the mail...…..that is the racist white man's narrative and excuse not to give reparations.

    We will accept reparations in the forms of the following:

    Eliminate the for profit prison industrial complex
    Eliminate the cash bail system
    Eliminate Check the box for housing
    Eliminate Redlining in housing
    Eliminate Check the box for employment
    Eliminate Background checks for employment
    Eliminate Bias's in Financial Institutions with low cost, low interest rate loans
    Eliminate Voting restriction
    Eliminate the Electoral College
    Eliminate the Death Penalty
    Eliminate Police Unions
    Eliminate Racist laws such as sagging pants, loitering, skateboarding etc.
    Eliminate Racial segregation laws
    Revise and Revamp the ENTIRE LAW ENFORCEMENT SYSTEM hold racist departments, individual kops and the Justice Department accountable.
    Revise and Revamp the ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM Hold racist Judges, DA's, Prosecutors, etc accountable.
    Free Healthcare
    Free Education
    Raise the minimum wage to at lest 25.00 hr.

    And if push comes to shove...…..give us our fuckin 40 acres and a mule!

    This is for starters...……….I could add to the list.

    THIS IS WHAT WE MEAN BY REPERATIONS

    Would you support a 'Right of Return' for our African friends?
    Basically a One Way Ticket and a renouncement of their Citizenship, plus a sizeable amount of Money?

    In 1982 the government paid 25K to the families of Italian who were lynched in 1891. You'll pay Italians 100 years later but not decendants of slaves? Japanese interment camp survivors got 25K each. Native Americans got $1.3 Billion after WWII. American got rich off slaves...…...Reparations are due.

    "Repatriation is the process of returning an asset, an item of symbolic value or a person – voluntarily or forcibly – to its owner or their place of origin or citizenship."

    Imagine if the slaves had to be reimbursed for their "free work"


    Imagine what would have been inherited down the line


    pay +interest


    then apply that number to all those programs


    it in no way would not be a savings for those living today


    If we do things with todays tax money the white people cant complain much


    people of color pay those taxes too

    What do we do with the Black owner of slaves?
    "One of the most vexing questions in African-American history is whether free African Americans themselves owned slaves. The short answer to this question, as you might suspect, is yes, of course; some free black people in this country bought and sold other black people, and did so at least since 1654, continuing to do so right through the Civil War. For me, the really fascinating questions about black slave-owning are how many black "masters" were involved, how many slaves did they own and why did they own slaves?"

    most of the stuff on your list Im completely down for
    Like Trevor Noah said.

    “combining everybody’s suffering into the same bowl” to “make it seem like all injustices have the same weighting, they don't.”

    “Reparations is a specific conversation about a specific time in America, and that is Black people were slaves?”

    If you have to include "whites" who are "suffering and who are going through pain and strife because of what’s happening when it comes to, machines taking jobs, factories becoming industrialized, etcetera" Then that's a different conservation.

    Just saying.

    It’s about “repairing something that you have broken, you are paying for something that you are supposed to pay for,”

    taking rights from Others? Who? White people?

    Blacks never had rights......that's the entire point of reparations......but I see it's important to have rights for whites.

    The police unions protect the racist Law Enforcement Industry. They need to go or be seriously revamped.

    You know, 'Slavery' has existed for 10,000 years. It's mentioned in the Hammurabi Code and the Bible. Did you know the 'Slavic Race' (Eastern Europeans) get their name because that is where Rome harvested many of their Slaves.
    So, will I be getting 'paid' for the past enslavement of my ancestors?
