    You are turning any valid discussion into a 'Black and White' issue. You are the LAST person to try and have a coherent discussion with. You are totally a 'Afro-centric' individual and have about the same perspective as some redneck that grew up Alabama in 1950.

    Any 'discussion' with you is useless. Your 'White Hatred' just clouds anything you have to say.

    Another stupid idea that will do NOTHING but lead to fewer jobs. Why stop at a mere $25 an hour? Why not $50 or $100? After all, it's just a bunch of made up bullshit.

    Apparently you have been "conditioned" to think EVERYTHING is about race. What a sad, pathetic existence you must live.

    Do you have any appreciation for them?

    You seem to be blaming them.
    No YOU are blaming them, I never said that. They volunteered! I'm saying I can't equate them volunteering with reparations for slavery...Ö.they weren't slaves. Kudos to them for fighting in a war their country started. It has absolutely nothing to do with reparations.

    This isn't a problem of the past. Slavery begat police forces tasked with catching runaway slaves. That evolved slowly over time to the modern policing system we see today where a Black man laying on his back with his hands in the air gets shot by a racist cop.

    A lot of the backlash toward the end of slavery took the form of trying to deny black people land rights. Guess what? Wells Fargo got in hot water two or three years back because they were giving worst interest rates to Black and Latino borrowers than they were their financially equivalent white counterparts. Can't own land w/o a mortgage, and if you go to the wrong bank, you can't get a fair rate on that loan if you're Black.

    You know Turkey in the Straw? That fun song the ice cream truck plays? Look up the original minstrel show lyrics.

    You know why Ben and Jamima are your uncle and aunt? Because racists couldn't handle calling Black people Mr and Mrs after the war ended. They used aunt and uncle instead.

    I could go on, but suffice it to say that almost every aspect of modern racism has its roots in America's cultural and legal approach to slavery.

    Also, regardless of when your family came here, we're all still currently, and actively using some pieces of infrastructure built by slaves, including the white house.

    The idea that we should pretend we're talking about a problem that's completely over and done with is absurd.

    You aren't going anywhere.

    You are reading everything I post so you can try to counter it by calling me a racist.

    You should stay...….you could use the education.

    I do not have a problem your points about the need for equality! I'm with you there that we still have a way to go there.

    I do have a problem with anyone who thinks that they can just be paid off with money now- or that money would somehow satisfy anyone today for the misdeeds of the past!

    hahahaha ... sorry. My grass is calling me. After heavy rainfalls, the grass grows geometrically. It's late afternoon and some what 'cool'. Jack only has a small window of opportunity here. But, ... thanks for caring.

    No, but the majority of people who skateboard are white. So if laws against skateboarding on the sidewalks are an attempt at targeting Blacks, it's a pretty weak one.

    And the media is anti-white, not anti-black. There are no news narratives or movies that serve as propaganda against non-white races.

    Please point to the exact place where I stated money would satisfy for misdeeds of the past.

    You're a reasonable person...….don't let the racist right fool you into thinking reparations = cutting Blacks a check.

    Just curious, did you have a problem with the Italians, Indians and Houlocost survivors getting checks?

    What if the decendants of slaves received back pay for the free labor they received?

    Why wouldn't that be reasonable? We spend that much giving money to Israel for no reason.

    I never said you did, but that is all I keep hearing from others on TV.

    I don't think you and I have an argument. I made a couple of points here in your thread that I wanted to make- that's all!

    So please, let's not argue for arguing's sake in front of others!

    Thanks!
