Just grab your pie in the sky work on your own injustices perpetuated today. Given the state of the world today, 150 years from now the progeny of the few survivors will see this era in the worst possible light and reparations won't be the reason.
He's a Zen master of attrition tactics.

Sadly, that's about all he brings to the table.

If you look at 1980, you will see the reparations for the Sioux because the US took their land in the 1860's. The Sioux rejected the offer because they claim the Black Hills was never for sale, and they want the land instead of the reparations. I think there was some kind of interest added to it, because apparently the reparations is up to the billions now!


I hear you, bro. No one likes to pay for something when they are not directly at fault. However, you can't just take the president's money. lol. (By the way, I know there is some belief that a president can't be indicted while in office, and congressmen also have some restrictions about what they can be charged with while serving, so this remedy wouldn't really work.) And plenty of society at that time benefited. Of course that doesn't mean anything to you, but again, it's just that if the US has to pay for something, we have to share the burden. There is no other way.

So I'm guessing you were against money being paid to the Japanese? If not money from taxes, I really don't know any other way the Japanese could have received amends.


Much respect as always, Tony.
Yeah, the way I see it, is for the guilty to pay and those who had nothing to do with it, not pay anything. I can't back off that stance. It's what makes sense to me. I am not against anybody receiving payments for wrongs that were done to them. And I enjoy seeing those responsible pay for their crimes. You commit murder? I'm all for pulling the switch? You rob people? I'd love to see you get robbed of everything over and over because these things are wrong according to my morality and I think most of us agree that murder, theft and rape are wrong, pretty much no matter what, although each case should be heard out for sure. I do hate to see people paying to right a wrong when often times, those in power in the government actually committed the crimes. Even people who were in favor of the crime but didn't participate shouldn't make it right either. Thoughts don't actually hurt people or take things away from them-only actions. And since these are crimes that we are talking about, I mean, have you ever had something stolen? Did you get it back? I've had things stolen and I will never see them again. The cops look for these things, but come on. We know it ain't happening. There is only so much they can do. Now, at the same time, I don't expect someone else to cover the loss. Obviously you can take out insurance on some things, but sometimes that doesn't work out either. And I'm not trying to trivialize this subject. Slavery is a far worse crime for sure. My point is that people are the victims of crime on a daily basis and often get nothing back from it. No justice at all. It is terrible but I don't see every wrong being made right. I don't believe we live in that kind of world.

Who knows, man? A reparations bill may pass through congress, but I wouldn't hold my breath. As with most things, we shall see...

Maybe I'm missing something, but I've never seen you present a public outcry on here.

Those that use the argument of "no reparations with my tax dollars for something I didn't do", are nowhere to be found every time the families of victims are wrongfully killed by the police and not convicted with jail time instead.

This is the trend of white supremacy and how it moves and operates invisibly, covertly and without a smell, taste or something tangible attached to it. It's literally an institution that isn't traceable or prosecutable.

Just pick and choose whichever talking points to justify whatever atrocity commited and wash your hands without accountability.
I'm against that as well. I didn't commit the crime and no, I don't feel responsible in any way. Nor should you or anybody else. Of course, what does race have to do with this? If the police wrongfully shoot a white/black/Asian/Latino man/woman/child, that is always wrong. No?

No, I am never in favor of the taxpayers flipping the bill for things they weren't responsible for. The a-hole cop who committed the wrongful act should pay of course. Heck, if I am a victim, I don't expect anybody to pay who had nothing to do with it. Now, if somebody took up a collection on their own, I'm fine with that of course, if they want to. I don't look at it as everybody's duty to help me out. It's not their duty, period.

I'll tell you what. The next time you see a cop wrongfully killing somebody, you post the article on here and I will be happy to post that I think that the tax payers should damn sure not pay for this. I will say it over and over, because it is wrong.

Keep on beating that dead horse.
Nah man. i believe Virgina is where the British whites came and settled first and then they brought over slaves to farm the lucrative tobacco crops.

The pilgrims went up North but they came after the set that went to Virginia.

I read several articles, and papers, and the issue is very complex.
What do you consider fair and accurate reparations?

Last word time


From who? From the United States. I think you can't understand something so simple because you simply don't want to understand.

It doesn't matter if every slave wasn't killed. What the hell are you talking about? The wrong that was committed was slavery itself. The United States was wrong to not only turn a blind eye to it but to perpetuate it. You don't claim, "All men are created equal" and talk about how no person in the United States should be deprived or life, liberty...etc.....and then engage in slavery.


Popping in and out saying I can have the last word doesn't work as per a conversation, since you don't want to stick around and answer any questions. But I think I know what that's about.


Again, it's not about white people. It's not about you. It's about the slaves and the United States. It's only about you to the extent that you are a citizen of the United States and share it's burden, the same as I do. We both are required to pay taxes. If the government decides that this wrong needs to be atoned, then you are required to pay in. "Cha Ching."


Last word time?

I am not against anybody receiving payments for wrongs that were done to them. And I enjoy seeing those responsible pay for their crimes. You commit murder? I'm all for pulling the switch? You rob people? I'd love to see you get robbed of everything over and over because these things are wrong according to my morality and I think most of us agree that murder, theft and rape are wrong, pretty much no matter what, although each case should be heard out for sure. I do hate to see people paying to right a wrong when often times, those in power in the government actually committed the crimes. Even people who were in favor of the crime but didn't participate shouldn't make it right either. Thoughts don't actually hurt people or take things away from them-only actions. And since these are crimes that we are talking about, I mean, have you ever had something stolen? Did you get it back? I've had things stolen and I will never see them again. The cops look for these things, but come on. We know it ain't happening. There is only so much they can do. Now, at the same time, I don't expect someone else to cover the loss. Obviously you can take out insurance on some things, but sometimes that doesn't work out either. And I'm not trying to trivialize this subject. Slavery is a far worse crime for sure. My point is that people are the victims of crime on a daily basis and often get nothing back from it. No justice at all. It is terrible but I don't see every wrong being made right. I don't believe we live in that kind of world.

Who knows, man? A reparations bill may pass through congress, but I wouldn't hold my breath. As with most things, we shall see...
Yea, I definitely won't hold my breath. If it has taken this long...


Well hey, your opinion is your opinion and you certainly have a right to it. Much respect as always!

You beating dead horses, yup, yer level.
Shut your dumb ass up. If you could fight so well you wouldn't be so clueless about the sport, would you? How many times now have I corrected you on things someone named Queensbury should know, Queenie?

Yes, you are a dead horse.
