Reparations America supports

62% of Americans oppose reparations for black people according to a poll by the University of Massachusetts Amherst and WCVB. Such race-based payments are unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment.

Nevertheless, the media, academia, and black leaders are pushing for reparations. 

Americans do support one set of reparations. National Pulse reported that a poll of more than 13,000 readers found 81% support reparations from Red China for the damage from its covid 19 virus.

The only leader backing this is President Donald Trump. The media barely will discuss it.

Once again, the nation's elitists are out of touch with the nation.

The U-Mass Amherst poll was directed by Tatishe Nteta, an associate professor of political science.

He said, "400 years since Africans were forcibly brought to the shores of America, 245 years since the 3/5th Compromise and 156 years since freed African Americans were promised 40 acres and a mule, a majority of Americans express an unwillingness to pay the descendants of slaves for the nation’s original sin."

No promise of 40 acres was made. A congressman introduced such legislation but it never became law.

Black people were eligible for 160 acres of free land under the Homestead Act of 1862, which allowed people of all colors to acquire land. All they had to do was work the farm for five years, and the land was theirs. 

1.6 million families homesteaded. By 1900, one-fourth of black farmers in the South owned their land, many of them thanks to the Homestead Act, which in 1866 specifically included freed slaves.

Reparations are racist because they reward people based on their skin color for ancient events. Slavery ended 156 years ago and systemic racism ended 50 years ago.

Black people today are victims of a biologic attack. All Americans are. Red China unleashed covid 19 on us last year (and perhaps earlier) without warning or provocation.

This was not 50 years ago, 100 years ago, or 150 years ago. 

This is not then. This is now. Red China should pay.

  1. We keep hearing about Kampala’s disastrous trip to El Paso. Or. nine miles away from the border.

    Someone should ask if she could see the border from her hotel? And, could she tell if it was the border with Russia or Mexico?

    1. Actually you can see Mexico from almost anywhere in El Paso. Mexico is not 9 miles away. It is the distance of a short bridge away.

  2. BTW what do those social justice experts say about the Egyptians giving reparations to the Jews of Israel?

    Four hundred years of slavery works out to a lot of mules.

    1. More African slaves were sent to the Middle East than the Americas. There is no African legacy in the ME because male slaves died en route or were quickly worked to death or castrated and babies of female slaves were murdered.

  3. Give each AfricannotAmerican one million dollars per family, along with a one way ticket to an African country of their choice. Make them sign an agreement that states “if you are found back in America, any legal citizen can permanently remove you from this country, in any manner they see fit, up to and including burial”.

  4. It's the usual gooey psychological tapioca that germinates marxism. The left mind thinking...hey give more stuff to a bunch of people...then those people will stop killing themselves (Chicago), will become model citizens...and everybody will love everybody. The use of the word "morality" is no help. It can be defined in an infinite number of ways.

  5. If reparations are eventually approved, make the ones who benefited from slavery pay... Democrats.

  6. If we all identify as blackwell would all be eligible. Then we could say not all black people support reparations.

  7. Back in the '70s, media talk pioneer Joe Pyne proposed offering malcontents a one-way air ticket to anywhere in the world if they would renounce their U.S. citizenship. It still sounds like a good idea.

  8. I don't believe reparations are the answer. It is not just to hold people accountable for things that happened way before they were born. If we decided to pay reparations for wrongs to black people in the past, those payments should come from Democrats. Democrats were the ones that held and owned slaves. They were the members of the Confederacy and the KKK. They were the authors of the Jim Crow laws and fought against the Civil Rights Bills of the 60's. If they want reparations, they can have at it.

  11. A friend suggested a surcharge tax on all items from China by as many countries as possible as a form of reparations, that could then be used to pay for some of the debt incurred.

    1. There's a thing called a "tariff" that already does that. When it became obvious that the Chinese weren't trading fairly, Trump imposed a 25% tariff on certain imports from China. The Chinese leaders realized they were gonna lose their biggest cash cow, and quickly got more fair. But the harris*biden regime quickly removed those tariffs. Gee, wonder why, eh?

  12. If reparations ever became law there is no chance in the Supreme Court would ever hold it unconstitutional. However, we would not need to worry about the Supreme Court or anything else because that would be the end of the United States of America. There’s a part of me that thinks that is the true endgame of reparations.

  16. What about the indentured servants, the white slaves? Slavery here included whites. I read Viking slavers raided white people to sell to the moors who preferred them. 1000-1400ad? I understand the north coast of Africa is a bit lighter colored because of that. Are reps coming for these decendants. The real reason for slavery was you could get rich on the backs of slaves.And have all the sex you wanted. Nobody cared where your money came from. I belive the Alamo
    battle was fought over the Texans demand to own slaves. Mexiaco had recently got rid of slavery and wasn't having it on their soil.A very facinating subject slavery, goes back to the early times. He who has the best weapons rules.
    A long read is Lies my teacher told me. Anyone the least inflamed abt slavery needs a copy. History books from before wokeness have the facts. Also the Spanish were the biggest slavers for a long time, after who knows who. Whens it stop? Save the hate mail for Don.

  18. ONLY 62% oppose reparations? This is quite unsettling, and resembles the path support for same-sex marriage took back in the 90s and early 2000s. I wonder what the support level was five or ten years ago and you can judge from the trend.

    As I've said before, this is a profoundly leftwing country now, and it will take more than voting to correct it.

  21. I wouldn't necessarily be against an award for any family still in poverty with traceable ancestry directly to a previous slave. I would also want all families that owned slaves to be uncovered and made mostly responsible for those reparations.

    Fairs fair right? And as far as Jim Crow, anti civil rights laws and the KuKluxKlan those should all be laid at the doorstep of the DNC.

    It's right there in our history. The people involved, the politicians and dominant voting party and their actual overt actions declare them to have long tried to destroy the Black American and previous to the civil war actually enslaved them. Democrats from the beginning of their party have been in favor if not demanding of slavery and the rights of the slave owner. That's right in the Congressional record.

  23. Now Wait a Cotton Picking Minute (4)?
    Alex Haley a Black Man's historical account depicted Islamic Swahili tribesmen capturing other Black tribes people. The first Original recorded... "Black on Black" crime! Black Traitors along with the Spanish French and British who were the
    Master's of Slaving and Shipping bartered sold & transported new Slaves such as the depicted
    Kunta Kin-ta' having ended up with Spanish Slavers for working sugar fields owned by now Vice President Kamala Harris and owned by her plantation owning family.
    The first four Minutes of "ROOTS" got it right... America did not exist in that cotton picking moment until after this fact. As an American Indian...WE Should Have Built a Wall!
