I'm fully in favor of reparations from anyone who owned slaves to anyone who was a slave.

The rest of the sniveling whiners can go fuck themselves.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation.

well...I almost led with 'sniveling whiners', but I figured
the alliterary value of 'frivolity at its finest' was too
good to pass up...

yeah, you obviously have no emotional investment in this issue... just straight logic, right man?  :rolleyes:

as soon as white people stop inheriting money that that's been in the family since labor was free, I'll get all freaky and think of highly charged slurs to label black people who are looking for a piece of the action. 

until then, have fun installing that sweet new lift kit on your pickup, and be sure to catch that nascar race.

Most white people are not descended from slave holders. My family came over in the early 1900's, they were poor immigrants, 'Slavs.' In case you don't know, the term slave comes from the Slavic people who were enslaved (this was long before the first slaves were shipped to the U.S.). Should I demand reparations? No I shouldn't, because I'm not a sniveling whiner.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I'd give my opinion on this, but coming from a long lineage of plantation owners from Georgia, I feel slightly biased.

yeah, that's why I didn't say "all white people inherit blood money". but lots do.

there's not a goddamn reason why the past ought to be untouchable.

Don't like lift kits.

Don't like Nascar (or most sports)

Don't like sniveling whiners looking for handouts.


Try again.

You're right. Which is why slaveowners simply MUST pay reparations to those who were actual slaves.

It's the right thing to do.

Well, seeing as how my ancestors on my Mother's side owned slaves (of which I am a bit ashamed to admit), if I could, I'd travel back in time and try to set them free. Unfortuanately, I can't.....
Oh yes, and BTW,  I hate NASCAR and redneckery in all it's forms.. :laugh:
