Those of you who think you are owed "reparations" by others, go stick your demands up your asses.

Our claim, however, would have to be dealt with in the U.K. since they were the offending country at the time and sanctioned the business venture.
But yes you have proposed a good argument. I was against Japanese American reparation on these very grounds.

There are no debts owed by anybody living today payable to any "former slaves". I smell a stinker of a scam to get free "no work" money, and nothing else.

Reparations my ass.

I am more than willing to grant reparations to anyone that can prove they were a slave to be paid by anyone alive today that owned slaves. Other than that, this is just another attempt by the DNC to buy votes from the African American community.

To go one further, the biggest influx of white people was decades after the end of the civil war...I'm guessing less than 10% of the current US population has a domestic lineage that pre-dates 1870...:yes :shrug

You that held slaves, should pay the reparations to those enslaved.

Ah, but you lived under a Constitution that endorsed slavery designating blacks as 3/5 of a person, language that's still there today. Plus the North didn't always ban slavery. :rolls

Notice that the call is for reparations for slavery? After the funding runs out there will be a need for reparations for segregation. After that reparations for white privilege. The government dictated redistribution of wealth never ends. ;) Think this won't happen? Look at the Pigford settlement. :eek

The current situation in South Africa is the logical destination from the drive to awarding government benefits on the basis of race.

Every political ass hole thinks it is okay to use other people's money for whatever their brains fart out. They will soon learn it is not wise to do so. People are getting smarter.

That was my attempted point with my veteran analogy. There will always be another group, and neither group will be satisfied with the results.

Not arguing any of that, matter of fact, I bring up the point that not only did the North have slavery of Africans, they pretty much enslaved Asians and Irish too, when someone tries to play holier-than-thou on the Southerners.

I was responding to 'redd's comment regarding 10%.
