#3 I still have the immigration papers of my grandparents. So I had nothing to do with slavery. Why should I and my family be paying?

#4 The vast majority of 'whites' had nothing to do with slaves. Most were descendant from the great immigration waves *after* the Civil War. And even if they weren't - very few whites, even in the south, owned slaves.

What about people like Obama - possibly a descendant of someone who sold the slaves to the 'white man' in Africa in the first place? And he is half 'black' and half 'white'...

I suggest the DNC first pay reparations. After all the vast majority of slaveowners were Democrats.

#5 $14 trillion = 600,000 Union dead * $23 million each life sacrificed to enable Emancipation.

i.e. Paid in Full.

Now go fuck off.

#13 Make no mistake, the real BET message is actually the old Robert Mugabe message. Give us your land and cattle and be gone.

#14 Fine but you go back to Africa as non-citizens with nothing. All payments taxed at 100% with the money going to families of Union soldiers and victims of black crime.

#15 Reparations? Johnson likes to pick at scabs and make things worse? Another idiotic idea that needs to be $hit-canned.

Otherwise what #5 Lex and others said.

#16 Person 1: Here is what you need to do to succeed...
Person 2: NO!
Failure results.
Person 2: Give us money because the system is unfairly stacked against us.
Person 1: WTF?

#17 Democrats claim DACA kids shouldn't have to pay for their parents crimes...

How many ex-slaves are alive to collect?

I'm sure he doesn't mean HE should benefit from the suffering of others...

#22 I’m descended from people who owned slaves, others that didn’t and fought on both sides of the civil war, and every war since then. So I’m pretty sure you think I owe you and yours something. So it’s right in the closet, come and get it!!!!!
