xcamel makes an observation echoed by many:
LBJ already paid it - to the tune of 10’s of billions.
It’s called welfare.
Welfare is only paying Blacks back for slavery! Cause only blacks are on welfare, and because welfare is so generous.
CaspersGh0sts has a more pointed view on the subject:
Dude, we've been paying reparations through welfare, insurance fraud,
through socialized medicine (rarely do I see a black patient with insurance
outside of what is given by the state), through our schools, who are overrun
with thugs who simply place zero emphasis on education.
Through the massively disproportionate rape of our daugthers. Through massively disproportate murder, theft, and assault. Through group intimidation in our schools.
Of course you're not allowed to say anything about that. Speaking the truth makes you a racist.
Wow! the "rape of our daughters" angle! That's some old, Jim-Crow style hate, there! Hmmm. Your namesake Casper the Ghost also liked to dress up in white sheets and scare people...
Then, it gets really ugly:
from occupied ga :
Is a race war on the horizon ?
There's been a race war on for decades; it has been called "affirmative action"
Dude, if your definition of war is that weak, I'd hate to see your definition of "proportionate response."
Speaking of which, we have Dead Corpse:
I will pay reparations on every slave I have personally owned.
One red cent of my tax money going to any slaves, or their descendants, that I have had no part in the ownership of I will consider theft. Any tax collector or government
agency trying to take said funds from me will be treated like any other armed
That's some good Internet tough guy action you got going there.
RobRoy will complete the bad craziness:
It feels like Warsaw, late 1938.
But I do have an SKS and 1000 rounds. It should get me through the first week.
Now, think what you will about reparations. The violent reactions and attitude engendered by the idea of reperations certainly shows racism is live and well in Free Republic.
