Re: Reexamining the question
What I challenge is the "special rights" reparations issues that the Left seems to favor

what is your obsession with reparations? you're acting like you think AOC will personally enter your home, pinch your momma on the booty, kick your dog, fuck your lady, dress up like santa and take pictures with your kids.

What is so hard about the idea that people who have been enslaved deserve some form of compensation from the government that allowed and profited from it?

Re: I Realize Im Whining But...
OK to start with, where does the money come from?

taxes, start going after those billionaires and companies that don't pay taxes.

But you don't just send a bill to some households. There is no way to accurately measure any compensation that is fair across all cultural definitions.

so your answer is it's hard to make a positive change so we shouldn't do it. That's to expected of you, after all didn't Jesus himself when confronted with the problem of the loaves and fishes say "fuck no, that's too hard".

it's kind of hard to deny that charge when you post stuff like:

If the government wouldn't have meddled in 1860, an increasing disdain for slavery would have ended it a few decades later, and an awful war could have been avoided.

but I shouldn't expect you to understand that slavery = bad cause you're just a stupid goat fellator.

Also we should note that you argued that:

My belief is that government should leave traditional activity alone, and let free markets and shifts in public opinion make things right.

in this case the traditional activity isn't the good old southern classic of "on the third sunday of the month we switch things up and let the pigs fuck us" but the institution of Slavery. You argued in favor of letting a few additional decades worth of slaves to experience suffering rather than have the southern goat molesters get their ass beat in the civil war.

Re: In Essence You Support A Meritocracy
That's the same argument that was used to keep the negroes picking cotton. And it was out of date then.

I think Phat has fallen for a line of thinking similar to LBJ's

If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."

except instead of "give him someone to look down on" they're giving him some one to "fear".

Re: Darker Future For USA
Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's

when/if Caesar wants reparations to be paid are you going to obey your lord?
