I think that is called “buying votes”
Just more evidence that this clown, whose mental faculties are noticeably declining is unfit for the office of the President and as rtk said is buying votes and pandering to minorities. Don
It came up today as topic de jour from the lefty decision wheel
i could never understand this "reparations" thing.
so i read the definition of it.
"the making of amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money to or otherwise helping those who have been wronged."
ok, so who gets paid back?
the slaves of over a century ago?
thier dead. thier off spring are Americans now, and have been for generations.
and why should ANYONE be paid for "wrongs" done centuries ago. how does one put a current dollar value on that? or do they get "paid" the dollars the owners paid to the traders to obtain a slave?
as it is now, all those riots, will cost all the insurance companies into the billions i'd have to surmise...so now, we as not only American's, but consumers as well, will be in effect, paying for all that damage in higher prices, in one way or another.
so to pay "reparations" to anyone, then i say let's pay EVERY one that was wronged by coming over to this country, centuries ago, and faced many obstacles, including death, due to the prejudices towards ALL people.
i dunno, paying someone for something centuries ago, makes no sense to me. just another hand out is what i see. that i and everyone else, ultimately is gonna be paying for.
My Irish kin were discriminated against....wonder how much I am due?
Mine too. If you find out what Irish reparations are paying please let me know.
well you see, this is what i was alluding to.
all my family, came over from Italy, so "we" had nothing to do with slavery. so IF Biden pays out those that he says "deserves" it, then by gosh, make sure i am exempt from any taxes to pay for it.
and yes, like the Irish, the Italians were very much discriminated against as well. not too many work places, liked ANY immigrant, back in the day. they had to work in the dirtiest, unsafest companies out there.
but, "how many immigrants" signed up for the military, and not even being a US Citizen back then?
many did, as some in my family had done.
yeah, so maybe I DO deserve reparations as well.
Reparations? Over 600,000 (revised by some to more like 800,000) men, the majority of whom were fighting on the abolition side, died in a war that ended up freeing almost 4 million slaves through emancipation (slavery was later outlawed). I think the debt of slavery in the US was more than paid. What did the African slavers pay for their part, the origin of African slavery?
That's probably too nuanced for many leftist racists to understand.
So, some Africans were on the delivering end of slavery and some were on the receiving end. And we got stuck with a disproportionate number of the latter...
Reparations: taking from those who work and giving to those who loot.
Welfare: Reparations paid millions of times over.
I'm not sure what your point is.
oh it's coming, if it's not done on a national level states like california will implement at the state level. It will not matter if you can trace slave blood or not as long as you fit the color profile. Whites are tagged as guilty period, does not matter if you came over on the mayflower or british airlines. Now what will get interesting is whether mexicans will get payment or be required to pay considering they were just as guilty in slavery.
If there are reparations paid, then all bias treatment for minorities ends immediately.
I'm Irish and Native American..... CHA-F'ING-CHING!!!!
My point is they still seem to want to be on the receiving end.
We'll take the ___________ and the ____________, but we don't want the Irish.
ahhh I see it now
Wall street will sell SLAVE REPARATION BONDS maturity is 100 years
If they wanted to pay reparations that should’ve been done 150 years ago. The last verified slave died in the 1930’s and I would guess the last slave owner died around then too. I do not understand how anyone can feel this money is owed to anyone alive today. Just like those alive today shouldn’t be given money because of something done to their ancestors no one should have to pay money for acts done by their past ancestors.
