Everybody's talking reparations.
Who wants it?
Who pays for it?
Like the government has a pile of unused money, built up from past years scamming the public, that it will let flow now that Democrats want it.
Should there be reparations for slavery?
But no one alive now was a slave before the Civil War.
Then let's make it about Jim Crow. The government messed up and should pay.
So the government only messed up against you?
What about the other mess ups?
Do those people deserve compensation?
Too bad the gorilla pundit's ideas won't settle the question.
Here it is: we give reparations, we will make one TRILLION dollars available to any American citzen of African American descent (and we'll use the old 'one drop rule' for mixed-race determination) and in return, everyone will have to finally SHUT UP, once and for all, about racism. That's it. Finished. It's done. You don't get to talk about it, whine about it, bitch about it any more. Disband Black Lives Matter. Dissolve the NAACP, abolish the Congressional Black Caucus, and revoke Farrakhan's cult church's tax-exempt status. No more bitching and moaning, you've been paid off and you now have to get on with your lives. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton will now have to get real jobs. African Americans can pool all of that sweet, sweet reparations cash and use it to rebuild Detroit, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other inner cities without any interference from evil racist white guys. We could all live together in peace and love and harmony. Thank God Almighty, we'll be free at last. For a measely trillion dollars, it would almost be worth it.
