Reparations?

I am against it, but my mind is open for business

Amen.

It makes no sense and serves no purpose to hand over cash to Black individuals.

Who is going to pay reparations to the some 350K dead and maimed Union soldiers who fought in part to emancipate the slaves from their Democrat owners. Most of those men had never seen a black man. Blacks never offer so much as a "thank you" for this ultimate sacrifice. When I hear about reparations I start to feel a tinge of regret that the Union was able to unconstitutionally force Southern states to remain in the United States. We don't owe today's blacks a cotton-picking thing, pardon the pun.

2020 Democratic hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California introduced an ambitious $100 billion plan to increase minority homeownership. ...

"So we must right that wrong and after generations of discrimination give black families a real shot at homeownership -- historically one of the most powerful drivers of wealth in our country," Harris told the crowd... .
”. From here.

The first question that came to mind is whether this is in addition to reparations and I think the answer is “yes”.

Amen.

This is one reason of many why Trump will win again.

Just so there’s no mistaking where several of the major candidates stand on reparations:



Amen.

I have all the respect in the world for Michael Myers, particularly as a Black man, for speaking publicly and labelling this idea of reparations as "bufoonery." He also refers to it as a "scam," which it is. Trump has to be thrilled with these candidates and their views.

A spectacularly stupid idea. However, Kamala's proposed "Lift Act" bill would help poor people, not specifically black people (although there is the obvious overlap). Julian Castro wants to give people money just for having a slave or two in their ancestry (which would include quite a few "white" people and wealthy people) and Cory Booker wants to give everyone trust funds - which kind of makes Kamala's proposal look a lot better.

Good post, old bean, but please allow me to provide some food-for-thought pertaining to the portion of your post parsed out, above. Consider these facts:

a) March 4, 1861 ~ Lincoln’s first inauguration in which he clearly stated in his first address:

...I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.

Those who nominated and elected me did so with full knowledge that I had made this and many similar declarations and had never recanted them... .
”; and

b) April 12, 1861 ~ Official start date of The War To Abolish Southern Independence a/k/a The Civil War.

Amen.

I was waiting for you to post this because I remember you have previously pointed out the reason for the Civil War on these pages.

Ayup, and never mind that the Civil War was just that: a war between the government and the governed. It was fought to keep the Southern states in the fold far more than it was to free the negro from his bondage. The latter was a humanitarian fringe benefit, so to speak. Most of all, the Civil War was wholly unconstitutional, but the Constitution hasn't meant a whole lot since its ink dried.

There's a whole lot more to the American story than they cram into empty young skulls nowadays.

If you have time, find a series of audio lectures by James Loewen on many historical subjects, but one of my favorites was his taking a state textbook review board to court because they didn't buy the history textbook he had written.

He knew they weren't going to buy it, and that was the point. History textbooks have a lot of omissions, misrepresentations, and errors, and his was verifiable and verified by scores of historians and historical sociologists, and had been trialed in a classroom setting where the kids actually enjoyed the class. there was even a picture of a lynching in the book.

The audio files are free if you can find them. This particular one was called Loewen et al. v. Turnipseed, et al. One of my favorite audio lectures ever.

*edit*
Here is the audiobook I was talking about. It was a free download when I found them years ago.

The reviews make good points, but I never got the feeling that he was self-righteous. He seems to look for the truth regardless of how uncomfortable it may be.

I think most countries like to sweep their dirty history under the carpet. In NZ, we study slavery in the USA, apartheid in South Africa, the holocaust, etc. but we don't talk about what we did to the Maori, or what the Maori did to the colonists - as members of the Commonwealth, we don't talk about all the fucked up shit England did to pretty much everyone. I suppose that is understandable, but what really irks me is how seeking the truth tends to get you into trouble. I remember being sent to the Principal's office when I was about 7 or 8 when I asked about the Maori practice of cannibalism. To this day the official line is that there are "mixed views" on whether it occurred (even though the contemporaneous evidence isn't mixed, it's only more recent "retellings" of history that cloud the issue). Eventually, it will all be so watered down that no body will know what really happened and there will be a Disney movie where Trump pulls a firey sword out of some famous rock and uses it to slay the evil dark wizard Obama and Hillary the swamp witch. Some hollywood hunk will play Trump as a breathtakingly handsome and humble man in his early twenties...and so on.

Muffy, my kindergarten teacher told the principal to call my parents for a meeting, because I colored bananas in art, green rather than yellow. She, a nigger, apparently had never seen fresh vegetables. Why do I mention this? Idk, bananas aren't even vegetables.

The school put me with another teacher. She was young, beautiful and treated me with kindness. I remember feeling bad though, I liked the other teacher and didn't understand what was happening.
