Reparations—Again!

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, May 29, 2014

Ta-Nehisi Coates and the magic words.

The idea of reparations has a hypnotic effect on blacks. Not only does it console them with the idea that black failure is someone else’s fault, it comes with the intoxicating fantasy that money will drop out of the sky. The latest version of this fantasy is Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Atlantic article “The Case for Reparations.”

There are simple, devastating arguments against reparations for slavery. First, it was practiced by individuals–not the government–yet the government is supposed to tax us to pay for it, even though there is no moral theory would require today’s whites to pay for something a few whites stopped doing 150 years ago.

Only one household in five in the Confederacy owned slaves. Even if it were possible to track down current descendants, there is no legal theory under which they should pay anything either. My grandfather may have murdered your grandfather, but you have no claim on me. You can go shout at my grandfather’s gravestone if you like, but I owe you nothing.

Some people claim it was slavery that made the United States rich, so reparations would just share the wealth. This is foolishness. Slaves were manpower–manpower directed by whites–and were hardly a miracle of productivity. Many abolitionists argued that slave labor was grossly inefficient and that blacks would be more productive if they were put to work at prevailing wages. Indeed, the South, where slavery was practiced longest and which had the largest black population, was always poorer than the North.

African blacks practiced slavery for centuries before Americans did, and it was Africans who sold slaves to whites. There is hardly a single known case of whites capturing and enslaving a black. If Ta-Nehisi Coates wants to blame someone for slavery, he can start with Africans.

Finally, if Mr. Coates wants to figure the cost of slavery—and of the 150 years of agony since then—he should take a look at Africa. Blacks call themselves “African Americans,” but precious few want the squalor, violence, corruption, and disease of the mother continent. They are much better off right where they are–“racism” and all–and they know it.

But Mr. Coates has a new wrinkle on the reparations argument. Although he revels in the eternal burden of slavery, he has a more recent and popular villain: bankers. In particular, he resents the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)–established in 1934–which guarantees mortgage loans for poor people but allegedly made it impossible for blacks to qualify. Along with segregation and restrictive covenants, this kept blacks in misery and set them up for the sub-prime lending crisis. This, believe it or not, is Mr. Coates’ central argument, so let’s take a closer look.

What the FHA did, of course, was set underwriting rules. It didn’t want to guarantee loans for people who would default. It put some “low-income and minority” areas in some cities off limits for guarantees. This is sound banking. It is perfectly logical to avoid lending in dodgy neighborhoods, even if a particular borrower in that neighborhood is a good risk. If the borrower does default, it’s hard to resell a house in a bad area.

How did FHA loans actually work? Were there white people who couldn’t get one because of where they lived? How many blacks would have been turned down no matter where they lived because they had bad credit records? Mr. Coates has no time for questions like these; for him, the FHA was a racist plot.

Since banks wouldn’t lend to blacks, the only people who would were sharks:

Blacks were herded into the sights of unscrupulous lenders who took them for money and for sport. ‘It was like people who like to go out and shoot lions in Africa. It was the same thrill,’ a housing attorney told the historian Beryl Satter in her 2009 book, Family Properties. ‘The thrill of the chase and the kill.’

Setting aside what this says about the intelligence of blacks who can be “herded” and “shot” like game animals, here is yet another version of the myth that refuses to die: that bankers are demented, twisted people who will walk away from a profitable deal with a credit-worthy customer just because he is black. People who sell shoes or cars or funeral insurance do business with blacks, but bankers won’t.

There is an easy test for this theory. If blacks are being held to higher credit standards than whites, their default rates should be lower. In fact, the reverse is true. Studies from the 1990s–and probably from other periods as well–show that blacks stiff their lenders at about three times the white rate.

Mr. Coates knows nothing about this, of course. Instead, banker viciousness just carried on into the new millennium:

Black home buyers—even after controlling for factors like creditworthiness—were still more likely than white home buyers to be steered toward subprime loans. Decades of racist housing policies by the American government, along with decades of racist housing practices by American businesses, had conspired to concentrate African Americans in the same neighborhoods. . . . [T]hese neighborhoods were filled with people who had been cut off from mainstream financial institutions. When subprime lenders went looking for prey, they found black people waiting like ducks in a pen.

More baloney. Again, even in the sub-prime segment, from 1998 to 2006 blacks consistently defaulted at about twice the white rate. What is more, it would never cross Mr. Coates’ mind to consider the tremendous pressures banks were under to lend to blacks and Hispanics, no matter how bad their credit. There are good arguments to be made that the entire banking crisis had its origins in a forced lowering of credit standards for blacks and Hispanics that was extended to white borrowers.

The FHA guaranteed a lot of those bad loans, which meant bankers could set aside their usual worries about repayment, and this meant lending to people who were virtually guaranteed to default. But Mr. Coates wants it both ways: In the 1940s, the FHA was evil because it did not guarantee loans for blacks; in the 2000s it was evil because it did.

So what are we to do after all these centuries of evil? Blacks certainly shouldn’t have to lift a finger to help themselves. Mr. Coates specifically chides Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter for saying they should. That would be useless because “the kind of trenchant racism to which black people have persistently been subjected can never be defeated by making its victims more respectable.” In other words—and this is astonishing—Mr. Coates thinks that white attitudes towards blacks have nothing to do with black behavior.

And we better not think that having a black President suggests that whites have anything but pathological resentment for blacks: “In the contest of upward mobility, Barack and Michelle Obama have won. But they’ve won by being twice as good–and enduring twice as much.” Can Mr. Coates really believe this about two people who, their entire lives, have swanned from one affirmative-action handout to the next?

Like so many of today’s pampered blacks, Mr. Coates is convinced the country is collapsing into open racism: “The Voting Rights Act has been gutted. The Fair Housing Act might well be next. Affirmative action is on its last legs.” That’s right: Pretty soon black people won’t be able to vote or buy a house in a white neighborhood. As for affirmative action, Mr. Coates is angry because it is no longer seen as overdue compensation for past evil but as a means to “diversity.” Its purpose should be to help solve “the problem of what America has taken from them [blacks] over several centuries.”

Mr. Coates quotes a former football player to explain what all this means:

The message the young black boy receives from his country, Billy Brooks says, is ‘ ”You ain’t shit. You not no good. The only thing you are worth is working for us. You will never own anything. You not going to get an education. We are sending your ass to the penitentiary.” They’re telling you no matter how hard you struggle, no matter what you put down, you ain’t shit. “We’re going to take what you got. You will never own anything, nigger.” ’

I’m sure that is exactly what every American governor, congressman, mayor, policeman, and school teacher says to himself when he gets up in the morning.

Needless to say, blacks are every bit as smart, hard-working, and disciplined as whites, so any difference in outcomes is due to white malevolence:

Perhaps no statistic better illustrates the enduring legacy of our country’s shameful history of treating black people as sub-citizens, sub-Americans, and sub-humans than the wealth gap. Reparations would seek to close this chasm. But as surely as the creation of the wealth gap required the cooperation of every aspect of the society, bridging it will require the same.

And so, finally, once we have got “every aspect of society” weeping with remorse and ready to pay up, what’s the price tag? Mr. Coates suggests we start with the difference in per capita white and black income–someone calculated it as $34 billion back in 1973. The current number “could be added to a reparations program each year for a decade or two.” A decade or two? Why not three or four?

This is all so stale. Amiri Baraka said the same thing with much more feeling back in 1967:

You can’t steal nothing from a white man, he’s already stole it. He owes you anything you want, even his life. All the stores will open if you will say the magic words. The magic words are: ‘Up against the wall motherfucker this is a stick up!’

For Mr. Coates the magic word is “reparations.” If white people are robbed raped or killed because enterprising blacks believe this nonsense and just want to cut out the middleman–well, who cares? This kind of excuse-making will be going long after we are gone.

But then Mr. Coates himself rises to poetry:

Perhaps no number can fully capture the multi-century plunder of black people in America. Perhaps the number is so large that it can’t be imagined, let alone calculated and dispensed. But I believe that wrestling publicly with these questions matters as much as–if not more than–the specific answers that might be produced.

You see, it’s not about the money after all. A few billion would come in handy, and Mr. Coates certainly believes blacks deserve every penny they could ever screw out of us. But what matters just as much–if not more–is “wrestling publicly” with how unspeakably evil white people are, how mortified we should be just to be alive. Yes, Mr. Coates, we understand. To have white people forever in the mud at your feet is sweeter than all the money in the world.

But let us conclude on a conciliatory note, on something on which we can agree. Mr. Coates writes:

[W]hite supremacy is not merely the work of hotheaded demagogues, or a matter of false consciousness, but a force so fundamental to America that it is difficult to imagine the country without it.

And so we must imagine a new country.

Let’s imagine two new countries, Mr. Coates: one for you and one for us. One in which you will finally be free from the horror of having to deal, generation after generation, with me and my kind. And one in which we, too, will be free.

    I support reparations. I think all negroes should be forcibly removed from society and sent back to Africa where they can live a white-free existence and finally be happy.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Sending them back to the warm embrace of their Motherland would be the kindest act whites could do. I would gladly support reparations in the amount of $50K for each man, woman, and chile who willing takes the money, gives up their citizenship, and takes a one-way trip back to Africa. It would save us a fortune in the long run. Money well invested.

      • Whitetrashgang

        True, but the tribe would just import more so were screwed either way.

      • JackKrak

        And you could make a fortune opening up a chain of shops in Liberia & Ghana selling menthol cigarettes, Air Jordans and ’78 Impalas with shiny rims at ten times their prices in the US.

        Their 50k would be gone in two weeks.

        • Dave West

          The more money you throw at those people the more worthless they become, it’s really incredible. No doubt slavery held back the more intelligent blacks, but your average negro was most productive between the years of 1619 and 1865.

          • Laika

            Worthless, just like the American dollar. Wait until hyper-inflation hits and then give blacks whatever they want, the dollar will be worth the same as a reichsmark during the Weimar Republic.

            We Whites will be starting over, we’re going to have to at some point anyway.

            None of this would be happening if we had our own White country.

      • Alucard_the_last

        I would give the a Zimbabwe million dollar bill. Imagine the dumb look on their faces when they can’t even buy a loaf of bread.

    • TruthBeTold

      If I thought reparations would be the end of their complaining and asking for more it might be worth it.

      But even after they cash their checks, they’ll call it ‘blood money’ and say ‘no amount of money can pay for the injustice’ they received.

      • Sue

        Reminds me of another people that can’t get enough. You know, the ones who started the original lie that gets bigger over time.

      • Johnny Clay

        Yep, and the demands will never cease.

    • Dr. Blooknok

      Yes, and with the proviso that all white liberals go with them. I am sure the white liberals will be more than happy to cleanse themselves for their Black masters.

      • Pro_Whitey

        How about two of our leftists to South Africa for each white still stuck there? I’m willing to up the number of leftists per South African.

      • rls976

        But white liberalism will not work without the white non-liberals to screw in favor of nonwhites.

    • Fathercoughlin

      The struggle their ancestors put up to stay in Africa would look like a sunday picnic compared to the struggle blacks would put up to STAY in America.

  • Reparations or repatriation? The latter will make blacks happier because after they’ve been given all the money on the face of the planet in reparations, all the big, fine houses, and all the white women’s vaginas, they’re still going to be whining, raping, robbing, spray painting, drug-dealing, eeeking and ooooking, and murdering. The money will be gone, the houses trashed, and they’ll still be hating whitey.

    A loathsome group of creatures they are, apparently sent by god to test us. What did we do to deserve that test, I wonder.

    • Sick of it

      Turning from God has consequences. Multi-generational consequences.

      • foundingstockcracker

        Called the great apostacy.

    • RisingReich

      I choose to look at it this way – I quite frankly see the Devil behind most blacks’ eyes. I without question see the Devil in the prevailing degenerance and attitudes of Blacks the world over.

      Raping, murdering, robbing, molesting, sodomizing, kidnapping, human sacrificing, superstitious, ignorant, and largely selfish and heartless creatures they are. All those qualities the Devil would promote and be proud of.

      Really, the Devil craves constant blood and conflict. We all know which group delivers those qualities “in spades” (lol) to the world.

      Good people were put here on Earth to rid the world of evil. I will let you infer what I mean by that. Duty calls.

      • Thanks for plugging my site. I’m just a little one man machine mocking the system using wordpress. Disqus probably gets into tech more than I can deal with. If wordpress incorporates it, fine. If not, better not to get in over my head with technical problems.

    • xyz234

      “What did we do to deserve that test, I wonder.” Well, these lowlifes didn’t get to this continent by themselves, let’s put it that way.

  • I waste neither time nor energy nor brain power arguing with blacks about reparations.

    Their pro-R arguments don’t make any sense, and a snail could deconstruct them. But if they were concerned about logic and reason in making their case, they wouldn’t be making those arguments. One of their favorites are all the major corporations that exist today either as stand alones or bought and integrated into other corporations, that got their start in some slavery-related business. The easy answer to that is that if those nascent businesses were so dependent on slavery, they should have gone out of business after slavery ended.

    No, all they’re thinking about is the potential handout, the freebie, the gibsmedat. They sense they could get something, so they’re rationalizing it any way they can. If they thought they had to dance naked in the middle of the street to get their handout, they would. (There might already be such videos on World Star Hip Hop.)

    GIBS…MUH…DAT!

    We’ve spent trillions on “reparations”. Paid that off with the Emancipation Proclamation in my opinion.

    • me

      Although the monetary costs have been great, don’t forget about all of the precious White blood that was spilled in the ‘Civil’ War. It was the perfect excuse for the feds to consolidate their power over state’s rights and the people’s will. If it weren’t for the excuse of the emancipation and integration of the Negro, we might have had a chance to stay closer to the freedoms that our Founding Fathers had in mind. As it is, most of our urban areas are war zones under martial law because of Negro crime.
      Also, Whites need reparations for all of the free welfare, free medical care, free housing, free education, the cost of crime, the cost of damaged property, the cost of ruined neighborhoods and entire cities, the cost of medical bills and funerals for the victims of Negro violence, and the cost of our well being and peace of mind. Not ONE of my people are safe as long as there is another race that hates Whites as violently as the Negro does.

    “…it was Africans who sold slaves to whites.”

    ===

    Henry Louis Gates, Jr. in the New York Times, April 23, 2010:

    “How did slaves make it to these coastal forts? The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. The sad truth is that without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred.”

    • dd121

      It’s impossible to rationally parse the slave trade to liberals. They’ve created their own slave fantasy world.

      • Sick of it

        They simply want to destroy everything decent, civilized, and beautiful in this world. They are savages.

        • Laika

          They do. But before this reign of Cultural Marxist terror, blacks knew their place, that is if they destroyed anything, there would be immediate and terrible consequences for them and their entire community.

          Now, we are restrained from even defending ourselves from black savages who attack our women, children even babies with near impunity.

          • gemjunior

            Yup, even shooting a baby of 1 year old in the face gets next to no media coverage. They can even shoot a white baby point blank and get away with it. Just imagine the WORLDWIDE uproar if a black baby was shot in the face point blank by 2 white “teens”? It would be on the cover of foreign magazines even. But here it was barely mentioned by our “media”.

      • Laika

        They have a pat and set dogma about slavery that shall not be challenged.

        That is, that Whites and ONLY Whites created, began and are solely responsible for the institution of slavery past, present and future in every country that has ever practiced slavery, even countries that have 0% White population.

        Challenge the narrative and get called a Nazi racist.

        • dd121

          Yep, and white people and only white people shall be punished for it until the sun burns out. Forgiveness is forbidden.

          • Juggernaut3000

            No forgiveness is necessary: Whites did not run the slave trade.

      • Alucard_the_last

        The only time a negro got a good whipping is when they did something wrong. No one is going to buy a slave just to torture them. Furthermore, they didn’t work in the winter so they got to just sit around and relaxing and stealing the masters liquor so they can get drunk.

        • dd121

          Anything that doesn’t fit the leftist narrative is simply left out of the story.

        • bilderbuster

        Exactly, by the way the same group are still at the slavery business though this time it is poor naive Russian and Eastern European girls who are being kidnapped and sold as sex slaves.

        • Laika

          They have also enslaved the White American population through a cultural marxist reign of terror with grave consequences, such as job loss, for those who do not toe their line and obey their directives.

          We are enslaved by being forced to cough up a high percentage of our wages so the marxists can redistribute it to non-productive blacks.

          It is slavery.

          • Jesse James

            Which is why the Founders put so much emphasis on property rights. Freedom and the right to property go hand in hand. Wealth redistribution through taxation is essentially a form of government slavery where a person is required to work unwillingly to support transfer payments to people and causes that the tax payer would not willingly submit to support.

          • Sick of it

            Freedom of association includes sending one’s children to a school of their choice and not paying for ghetto/barrio dwellers to attend school.

    • Oldcorporal

      I believe history shows us that most of the slave traders were Semitic Arabs, not “Europeans.”

      • Adolf Verloc

        In East Africa, yes, for their own use. Ditto with the Barbary Coast states in the Maghreb that raided Europe for white slaves. Don’t think they were much of a factor in West Africa.

      • bilderbuster

        The ones who brought them to the New World and sold them there were Semitic but they weren’t the Arab kind.

        • Sick of it

          Even there, I’d say more Mongoloid than Semitic.

        What else is new? White Europeans always end up taking the brunt of the blame for the deeds of the Stein’s, the Berg’s, and the Cohen’s. Whether were taking about slave trading 200 years ago or white males dying in the Iraq desert for Israel.

        • bilderbuster

          Honestly, when I was in school they had us watch it and we were supposed to write a report on it with the unspoken rule that the reports were to praise the “documentary”.
          I started to write a truthful report instead and then realized I would have an enormous burden finding LOTS of documentation that I would need to refute that work of fiction at the local library (this was before Gore invented the internet) only to afterwards get the same treatment as you received.
          Instead I turned in nothing and told my teacher that we didn’t have a TV and we weren’t allowed out of the house after dark so I couldn’t watch it anywhere else.
          I don’t think the teacher believed me but instead of an F I got an incomplete.
          Later I found out several others had watched the first episode and refused to watch the rest and they also made similar to excuses to mine and also got an incomplete.

            Thankfully, we were not subject to such abuse at any of my schools.

          • bilderbuster

            Tenth grade at my Miami Beach public school back in the 80’s was such a joy. Our White school had to import (busing) our Black students from the mainland ghettos and Jessie Jackson with his big ‘fro and Operation Push “Repeat after me : I AM SOMEBODY!” were on a nationwide tour of the public schools and being paid handsomely for it.
            We had to go to the auditorium for his rally.
            Normally we loved to miss class and go to the auditorium for school functions but practically all of the students in our majority White student body were openly groaning and complaining about this and mimicking Jackson and his stupid slogans in very unflattering ways.
            Then there were the teachers who were openly supporting gun control like NYC’s gun laws, Ted Kennedy’s National Health Care daily in the classrooms and a married with children Black principal arrested for soliciting a prostitute who still kept his job.
            The majority of the Whites wouldn’t eat in the school cafeteria as ALL of the Blacks were occupying it for free lunches and it was loud, rude and hostile and instead brought their lunches or ate off campus.
            It was more fun than a barrel full of monkeys then and for the life of me I can’t understand why today’s White students aren’t in open rebellion as we were very close to being then.

          • Sick of it

            For one year I attended a 99% black school here in Louisiana. The blacks looked at we few whites with abject hatred in their eyes and the only reason they didn’t do anything to us was because they knew, at that school, they would be punished for it. Needless to say, I was glad to leave after that year.

            I had a good friend who found himself in the same unfortunate situation as yourself. He was a straight A student and an athlete .
            He had to quit the football team before a game was played because as the only White on his team the Blacks were literally trying to kill him during practice.
            He ended up dropping out and getting his GED and later graduated from a university.
            Needless to say he has a very low opinion of Blacks.

          • gemjunior

            I think because they don’t know it could be better; they have no framework for real normalcy. To put it bluntly they are dumbed down. Your situation sounds like students were aware that some new group was in control and trying to “dumb down” students.

          • bilderbuster

            Most of us weren’t buying it but I think because our parents went to all White schools they thought we were whining teenagers and thought we were exaggerating.
            They tended to side with the schools thinking they were the same type of good public schools they attended only a little darker.
            Their short sightedness guaranteed that the children who were in the first grade when we were in high school were already dumbed down during the short decade before they reached high school.

          • Jesse James

            I grew up and went to school mostly in South Georgia, everyday was like living in a movie starring Kunta Kinte. The difference between reality and the film was that communists Jews and their white fellow travelers don’t get to right the script for reality. I learned the hard way that the school and my fellow students couldn’t be relied on to protect me from the savages. Only my own two fists guided by my own mind could do that. It is funny how much better they seem to be able to control their “chimp outs” when they know that if they push you too far they will get an uncompromising and violent reaction.

          • gemjunior

            I was about 8 when it came out and we watched it’s first showing on TV, and I cried my heart out for the poor slaves and raged at the evil slave masters and slave traders and evil Chuck Connors. It took about 3 more decades for me to cop onto their scam but I did, better late than never. They were far more use as slaves than they EVER were afterwards, and that’s the painful truth.

            Alex Haley (the ghost writer of “The Autobiography of Malcolm X”) was sued for plagiarism by the Jewish author of the novel “The African”.
            It seems that at least half of this “true” story was stolen from a Jewish work of fiction and the rest was came from Alex Haley’s imagination.
            Of course, except for having to pay the Jewish author an undisclosed amount, Haley suffered no consequences and Roots was given many awards from the Jewish film industry who went on to make more Roots spin off anti White propaganda movies (that school children are still forced to watch) and Haley even has a Coast Guard ship named after him.

        Coates says the value of slaves was in todays dollars in the trillions of dollars.
        I’d say that since it was all disappeared with a few strokes of Lincolns’s pen, then that value was no more than that of fiat money…paper.
        And so, according to Coates, Blacks had absolutely no value, except as slaves.
        So, there’s that.

        • I think I destroyed his “logic” in that stead in the previous AR thread about the “intellectual musings” of the mediocrity in question. I’ll post it again here.

          ***

          Oh, Ta-Nehisi, never try to bull-hockey your way with someone who can reason his way out of a paper bag. Which does not happen to include 99.999…% of those who are the intended audience of your rant. Unfortunately for you, now I happened to have read it.

          There’s a huge problem with this mentality. It’s apples and broccoli to compare an antebellum economy that was still significantly more agricultural/cash-crop than industrial, to today’s economy that was industrial, or rather, post-industrial. When your economy is largely agricultural, draws most of its low value added GDP (“low” because it’s an agricultural economy) from labor intensive work, and slavery is permitted, of course a big chunk of aggregate household assets are going to be in those self same slaves. No industrial economy, no way to exploit the high value added nature of an industrial economy, and the delta wealth is not there for household assets or anything else. And of course the slaves were worth more than the total worth of all the heavy industries in what was at the time an industrial economy sector still in its infancy. But there is no way the industrial sector would have boomed and become the ultra-dominant sector of the economy while the agricultural-slavery-low tariff iron triangle dominated the country’s politics.

          Sure, you can do simple math to come up with $10 trillion as the answer to 16% x (Total household assets) for the present time, but you’re looking at total household assets in an economy that would have never gotten as massive or as sophisticated as it is without ditching slavery. Let me put it to you this way — If we still had slavery, we would most likely not have had a flourishing industrial economy, and the economy of today would be far smaller. Slaves would still be 16% of total household assets, but 16% of a far far far smaller portion of a far far far smaller pie.

      I realize it’s a joke. But you can’t pay reparations and be done with it … it doesn’t work that way. They will be happy to spend whatever they get and they will be back for more. Only you’ve set the precedent this time, and they’ll want bigger payments, because the first will have failed to make them learn, achieve, and feel equal to whites. They’ll construct elaborate theories of why. No no no, those reparations wre wrong, for this reason and that reason, you did it wrong and you’re still racist, we need to do it again, and again.

      No, the only answer is to do as Jared does … be strong, stand up to the bullies, don’t give in to sophistry and lies, and say no.

      • Beloved Comrade

        This is another tactic that is being to used to promote white genocide and destroy the white race. Silly fools like Ta-Nishiti should be thoroughly laughed at and mocked for his ridiculous idea, in fact this fool shouldn’t have a national forum to spew his vomitus bile at white Americans.

        It is the powerful anti-whites who control the media and government who allow professional negroes like Ta-Nishiti a forum, agree with what he says and then force whites to pay up who are the real problem in this country.

        Get rid of them and useful idiots like Ta-Nishiti, and Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other professional white-hating racists would dry up and blow away.

Some questioned whether the author actually had been a public defender, or if the essay was simply the product of the literary art. I have seen Jackson’s essay; actually, have it archived on one of my computers. I wondered the same thing about the Jackson essay. I have considered that both of these essays were written by the same person, since both show the same kind of crafting and even a similar choice of vocabulary. Any thoughts, anyone?

  • Dave West

    Just imagine the chaos that would ensue in inner cities if hypothetically the gov’t did dole out, let’s say, $50,000 to every black person over the age of 18. Here are the outcomes if this nonsense actually took place.
    1. A very select few of black people would save the money or invest it and make smart decisions with it. However these would be the most intelligent blacks who probably already have decent incomes and savings.
    2. Most would just waste it in a few years or less on every type of consumer good imaginable. I can just imagine De’Marcus putting 25k down on a Cadillac, wasting the other 25k and then getting the car repossessed after he forgot he didn’t have the cash to make the payments. If reparations do happen I’m starting a car repossession business!
    3. Violence spikes. Just imagine every thug in every inner city in America all the sudden was handed 50k. Basically every crime-prone black thug would know that every other rival crime prone black thug was sitting on 50k. There would be break-ins, shootings, drugs… I guess I don’t really need to spell out the rest.

    Just think about what welfare has done to black people in terms of crime rates and illegitimacy, it seems the more money you throw at negroes the more useless they get. After it was all said and done and violence had made “communities of color” more uninhabitable than they already are you can bet Al and Jesse would be railing about how the “gubment” set black people up!

        • thomasdosborneii

          “They would get their reparations, start fighting each other over the money….” That reminds me so much of the ending of the book, “Little Black Sambo” (which actually is about India, not American blacks, since there aren’t tigers roaming around America, but that didn’t stop blacks from thinking the book was about them). In the story, Little Black Sambo has a fine set of new clothes, shoes, and even a beautiful umbrella. A tiger, seeing these fine clothes, gets resentful and threatens to eat Sambo if he doesn’t give him an item of clothing, which Sambo does. That tiger now thinks that he is the finest tiger in the jungle. This continues throughout the day, different tigers come up, want to have Sambo’s clothes, and threatens to eat Sambo if he doesn’t give him an item of clothing. Sambo gives him the item of clothing and now that tiger thinks he is the finest tiger in the jungle. Eventually, Sambo has had all this fine clothes, shoes, and umbrella taken by the tigers. The tigers? Well, they get in a big screaming fight over which one is the finest. They strip off the clothes and whirl around and around a tree snapping, snarling, and biting flesh in a fearsome battle. Sambo reclaims all his clothes, and at the end of the fight, there is nothing left of the tigers but a huge puddle of butter. Sambo gathers up the butter and takes it home; his family then has a big feast of pancakes. It wasn’t until today reading this thread that I finally understood the full meaning of this story!

    It’s entirely understandable that Blacks continue to resort to such righteous demands for “reparations.”

    Try to envision their situation. If we were to remove the West from the equation, Blacks would be among their fellows in Africa. What have their people accomplished?

    Where are the great African composers – the Beethovens, the Tchaikovskys, the Tallises, the Griegs? Which musical instruments are conspicuous in African music other than bongo drums and similarly crude tools?

    Where are the great African writers? Which fine African works of literature are studied throughout the world?

    Where are the inventors and scientists? The Newtons, the Einsteins, the Galileos, the Archimedes?

    Where are their sculptors and artists? Their architects?

    Now, examine their history in the West. What are their achievements? Rap music, literary works that almost universally consist of whining, unending dependence on government programs and handouts… I will give them jazz, but that really is a very minor component of Black culture today.

    These people have no past to speak of, and they don’t seem to have much of a present to write home about either. No, their aim is to create a future. And the only way for them to have a future, as is perfectly evident, is to be given a lift to the 100th floor of the tower of Western accomplishments. They need the preferential treatment to succeed – as a matter of fact, it is imperative for them to insert their victim status into the very legislative, judicial, and social foundations of tomorrow’s America, because it seems that occasional boosters shots of Black Privilege are insufficient for them to thrive. They need the 24/7 external support for life.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Excellent points about the clear lack of any important progress made by blacks. Let’s pretend that George Washington Carver DID invent the peanut. Is that it? But even with preferential treatment, free housing, free food, free walking around money, free education, and Affirmative Action, the are STILL a backward and extremely stupid race of people. By demanding reparations, they seem to be screaming that they cannot survive without the white man’s largesse. Which is probably true.

      • dusa1957

        The only original invention I have ever seen ascribed to a mulatto or Negro is the super soaker squirt gun. That’s it. Everything else has been an incremental change to an original white invention, usually with a white co-inventor. Often times, a Negro manager (appointed due to company quotas for Negroes) is listed on a patent even though they made no technical contribution. This is for show.

        • bilderbuster

          He must have been inspired by that great inventor Ronald McDonald because all he did was super size a squirt gun.

        The taboo reason for lack of Negro progress is the FACT that Negroes have an average IQ of only 85. Along with this is an emotional maturity of an 8 year old. These numbers can be somewhat higher the more white blood is mixed in, say with quadroons or octaroons.

        • Whitetrashgang

    As President Barack Obama (peace be upon him) Runs for Fifth Term, Republicans Oppose Next Round of Reparations Payments

    Republican leaders criticized President Obama (peace be upon him) at a news conference today, saying the upcoming annual $50,000 Reparations Stipend has, in the words of RNC chairman and former National Review editor Rich Lowry, “maybe gotten a little out of hand.”

    “I am not a racist, and fully support the direct compensation of the descendants of slaves to make up for the terrible injustice visited upon them by all White people,” Lowry continued. “I only question the effectiveness of the program. For example, our most recent census reported that there are 50 million Beautiful, Innocent, Talented, Colorful, Humans (B.I.T.C.H-es) in the United States, but just last year we sent out over 125 million Reparations checks.”

    Secretary of Reparations and Lead B.I.T.C.H Michelle Obama responded that Lowry’s criticisms were “…racist and hateful to the B.I.T.C.H.ing community.”

    Mr. Lowry is scheduled to appear before the Negro African Zulu Inquiry (N.A.Z.I) tribunal, headed by N’queef *click* Mbundu (formerly Eric Holder) next week.

    Great article but I was really expecting something better than this let-down, “Setting aside what this says about the intelligence of blacks who can be “herded” and “shot” like game animals”. The original author really left it wide-open for something else here.

    “There is hardly a single known case of whites capturing and enslaving a black”. This statement is not true. There are narratives of whites ship crews capturing blacks and enslaving them, whether these narratives were invented as part of an effort to help arouse a proper black consciousness, or whether these were true stories (and if true) what portion of the ‘slave trade’ did this make up? might be a good question to answer.

    “To have white people forever in the mud at your feet is sweeter than all the money in the world” There is a bit of irony, for they have certainly been at our feet for a time plus we had a fair amount of the money in the world.

    “and this is astonishing—Mr. Coates thinks that white attitudes towards blacks have nothing to do with black behavior”

    This is even more astonishing for black behavior has nothing to do with white attitudes, the worse their behavior the more we have to be ‘sensitive’ towards them. Of course there are the whites who may be physically afraid of blacks or of confrontations with them of any kind, some with scars offering proof of why they should be afraid. Whites are also often morally afraid. What was the case in Dinesh D’Souza’s illiberal education? a black fraternity physically assaulted a white fraternity and the whites were the ones who needed to hire defense lawyers. Blacks use racial slurs like ‘red-neck’ in the process of having white fired for being ‘insensitive’. They sue for work place discrimination employers who have iron-clad proof they are discriminating against white men in both the hiring an promotion process.

    Mr. Taylor has written another great article of the caliber I certainly could not have written, but this time my comments happen to notice ‘errors’ he has made.

  • coco bongo

    Segregation is the only solution. Yet, the brothers will also complain about this because the real point is about squeezing everything you can get out of whitey.

    Memo to Mr. Coates: whites have had just about enough of taking care of your sorry tails. The billions in welfare, affirmative action programs, and other set-asides, plus what we have to pay to keep half of you in prison. We’re sick of it and won’t take much more of it. I am for whites carving out their own territory somewhere on the US continent where you can be rid of us and we can be finally, free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, free of the brothers!!

  • Anon

    There are some root assumptions that are just wrong, that make your article pointless.

    1. Black people are both extremely wicked and mentally defective. You simply cannot debate the issue in good faith with them. They could care less who or what is right and can not understand any of it, in any case.

    2. Blacks intend to take from us by force. What they do on an individual level, they want to do on a societal level. Slavery? They intend to enslave US. The very second they have the power to do so, they will. There is a very wide power gap between blacks and whites that makes this a bad idea (for them). You don’t reason with muggers…..you shoot them in self defense. There has, in fact, been many times white have been slaves to blacks. It is extreme hubris and foolishness that most white people don’t even know.

    3. There is an extremely hostile, malevolent third race involved. They are actually the ONLY source for the idea of reparations and the entire nonsense of “racism” as an idea. 90%+ of blacks have never heard the term reparations and are unable to understand the concept. Even brain washing them is a chore as you need to have a brain to wash. The point remains that neither whites nor blacks really care about the issue, at all. It exists because this third race constantly wages a propaganda campaign on it. Were control of the media taken away from them, the issue would vanish.
    Reparations is not an issue. Nothing whites should even give lip service about. The correct question to constantly ask is who keeps bringing this issue up and why. It’s not black people.

    • Diversity Fatigue

      Oh yes it is. It’s blacks front and center. It’s blacks robbing, raping, and murdering whites on a daily basis though you likely don’t give them credit for that either, right? The poor little helpless blacks aren’t smart enough to play the welfare system either. Racial terrorist Al Sharpton is being told what to do. And Obama’s new multi-billion dollar program for black and Hispanic males only, was set up by others.

      Get real.

    • benvad

      Maybe we should send Africans to this third race’s homeland to flood their state with as much diversity as possible. Just help smugglers get in as many Asians, Indians & Sub Saharan Africans as possible to wreak their societies.

      Maybe promote nationalists to drive their brethren out of Europe or just hurt them in the bank account by illegally downloading or copying what they produce. Make them hurt in the wallet.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    Off topic, but…Fred Reed’s take on White Privilege “Vertebrate Privilege” . It’s worth reading the whole thing.
    “……Having decided that some cultures were superior to others, I fell deeper into error, and wondered whether maybe being smart was better than being stupid. Before, I had understood from the Washington Post that being illiterate and borderline retarded was a sign of Authenticity. Well, I certainly wanted to be Authentic, though I thought I would pass on eating the pasty white gurbs. (Authentic what was never mentioned, but it didn’t seem to matter. If Salon was for it, it must be good.)

    I began dressing like the contents of a dumpster, with butt-hanger pants and a baseball cap on sideways so as to look like an idiot. I petitioned the Educational Testing Service to have my SATs lowered, and began Vocabulary Limitation Therapy. I considered lobotomy. Such was my desire for Authenticity.

    It did not work. No. No amount of abasement, no embrace of degradation can overcome Vertebrate Privilege. But, like a sociologist, I could revel in being an earnest aspirant to degeneracy. Small compensation, but better than nothing.

    But alas! Alack! I am ruined. Having lost one’s faith in the transparently absurd, one may never go back. I will never again believe the Iroquois the equals of the Finns. I am lost.

  • Rurik

    While the South may have gained their riches from slavery, all those riches were destroyed or looted during the period 1862-1877, the Civil War and Reconstruction. Some of that was done by White Yankees, but some was also done by the Freedmen, particularly postwar. Since the South really only asked to be left to go in peace, perhaps it is White Southerners who should be asking for reparations In 1862 Aleksandr II freed the Serfs of Russia – but in return for redemption payments to their former owners. They were spared a civil war for half a century until Lenin and Trotsky started a war over Marxism.

    • Aleksandr II was assassinated by radicals in 1881 precisely his interest in reforms seemed likely to deny them the revolution they wanted.

  • Beetlejuice

    White hating fool and professional victim Ta-Nehisi Coates needs to be reminded, forcefully if necessary, that it was Western Whites that put an end to slavery.

    White Americans sacrificed 500,00 of their finest, bravest young males to end slavery.

    • Dave West

      It also should be noted that Europeans put an end to a lot of slavery in Africa during colonization. All those atrocities done to black people that you read about during colonial times were for the most part done at the hands of other blacks. I read once about black laborers who had there hands cut off in the Belgian Congo for not reaching quotas, the article implied that this was done by evil white men. I did a little digging and found out this was done exclusively by black middle-men working for the Dutch East India company.

      • Beetlejuice

        Not only that, whites were not responsible for the slave trade even though the entire bloody business is blamed on us to this day, this, despite the FACT that slavery still exists in parts of the world.

        The achievements of William Wilberforce are not taught and I doubt 1 in 10,000 Americans or Brits even know who he is and what he accomplished as far as ending the slave trade in the west.

        Instead we have slavery shoved down our throats to elicit guilt and place responsibility on White children who were born a over a century and a half after the slave trade ended in the West. The great achievements of Whites are ignored, including the ending of the barbaric practice of slavery.

      • Mason Gull

        I think your research might have been faulty based on the fact the Dutch East India company no longer existed at the time of the Scramble for Africa, and was never involved in any African colonization anyway.

  • Jon

    The fact is the founders paid them back a long time ago when they bought the country of Liberia for them and even offered to educate and christianize them. I do think the final payment should be to send them back to Africa and most White Americans would not mind paying for their ticket. They do love to blame us for their failures but we do not owe them anything but a ticket back to Africa and anything else let them work for it.

  • DavidSNESGAMER

    This article closed with profound words, poetically written:

    “And so we must imagine a new country.”

    “Let’s imagine two new countries, Mr. Coates: one for us you and one for us. One in which you will finally be free from the horror of having to deal, generation after generation, with me and my kind. And one in which we, too, will be free.”

    Sam Dickson has always argued that white people need to stop complaining and always strive toward our own ethnostate, just like Israel for the Jews or China for the Chinese. He is right. There are a billion different tales of black malfeasance and Mestizo corruption, and a billion glib remarks we could make in indignation to these things. But the remarks don’t solve anything. Our own nation will solve most everything.

    Three points, not withstanding the Constitutional bar on corruption of blood (corruption of blood is the medieval concept that if a family member, even an ancestor, committed a crime, then all family members could, in theory, be held responsible; the real reason was for a naked land grab):

    1. Anyone on welfare for any amount of time has already received reparations.

    2. If reparations mean a one way ticket, sign me up. I’ll help with reparations from each of my paychecks until the job is complete; in this scenario, I feel like we also enslaved poor Hispanics, too.
    3. The FHA insures virtually every loan in today’s market, and it was Bill Clinton/Andrew Cuomo who set up the ridiculous scheme to give everyone a loan regardless of creditworthiness. Part of the myth of Bill Clinton, besides acting like the Treasury eliminated all debt and became awash with cash (in reality, for the first time ever, Social Security was depleted completely to make the accounting trick of money pouring in seem real). When you hear someone talk about how good the economy was under Clinton, realize that idiot saying that ignores that Clinton’s policies caused the meltdown starting in 2007.

    • Dave West

      To go along with your third point, it’s amazing how libtards blame anything and everything bad that happened during the Bush era on Bush himself, no matter when the policy was put in place. When it comes to the “infallible” Obama, everything bad is either Bush’s fault or that of stubborn republicans.

      Clinton is the one who pressured banks to lend to low-income minorities. Libs also love to talk about how deregulation of the banks caused the recession; as it turns out all that deregulation was signed into law by Clinton in 1999 via the Graham Leach bailey Act.

      If republicans and only republicans caused the recession then how come there were no Democrats in congress during 2005 or 2006 warning of the impending doom?

      • Pro_Whitey

        I think the Bushes still deserve a heap of blame, especially George W., who pushed the loan expansion, apparently to help his family’s standing among the browns as much as among the blacks. And let’s not forget that Bush sought amnesty for illegal aliens many times. To think that the GOP is seriously considering another Bush, it’s like a dog returning to its vomit.

  • IExpatinWarsawO

    Yes two nations is probably the best solution. The whites should embrace nationalism
    and have their own nation.

    Sending the American blacks back to Africa, probably isn’t very practical, so pay each American black adult x amount and give them two or three southern states, Alabama and Mississippi, two of the eight poorest states. The blacks are paid reparation, but have to relocate to their new nation and they are no longer citizens of the U.S. Their new nation contiguous to the U.S., I’m sure will be one big Detroit within a few short years.

The last thing I read that was as funny was a rant by some black buffoon on HuffPo who said he wasn’t going to compete with Mexicans mowing lawns and plucking chickens, but that he was coming for my job. I wrote back at the time that my old job as a chemical engineer had earned me a blood pressure of 175/105 by my 31st birthday and that he was more than welcome to it. Of course my comment was immediately deleted.

    In 2012, the US federal debt was $ 17.6 trillion. Interest payments alone on this amounted to $ 432 billion. There isn’t any money for reparations: quite the opposite. Before we allow blacks to leave for Africa, they need to pay off their share of the national debt. With a black population of 41,675,000 – according to the 2012 census – and at 13.1% of the population, this leaves every black man, woman and child in the USA owing us right around $55,600.

    “Yakub (sometimes spelled Yacub or Yakob) is, according to the Nation of Islam (NOI), a black scientist who lived “6,600 years ago” and was responsible for creating the white race to be a “race of devils”. He did this through a form of selective breeding referred to as “grafting”, while living on the island of Patmos.

    The Nation of Islam theology claims that Yakub is the biblical Jacob. Traditional Muslims do not have this belief, or anything similar to it. The story has caused disputes within the NOI during its history.

  • IKUredux

    Once again, intense folderol from the Blacks who luckily for them, and not so luckily for us, inhabit our country. I submit the fact that anything owed to Blacks has been payed in full. Many times over. If anything, they owe us. The Blacks in this country were offered the opportunity to move to Liberia. I don’t know the numbers that agreed to this, and I am not going to waste my time researching it either. Because, regardless of the numbers, it clearly wasn’t enough. This country has spent way too much capital, resources, and time, on trying to make Blacks fit in. If the endeavor to raise Blacks to some kind of civilized status were a company, they would have declared bankruptcy long ago. Investing in Blacks, is absolutely the worst return on investment ever, in the history of the world.

  • Stan D Mute

    So you’re not really able to understand the “Out of Africa” *theory* of human evolution are you? “We are your father” also tells me that English isn’t your strong suit either.

    But I’ll give you your “the blacks they worked hard” point. There is ample proof of that just in crime statistics. Young black men, 5% or less of the population in America, commits over 50% of all murders and the overwhelming majority of all violent crime like rape and assault. And to think you accomplish that while thirty percent of you are already in prison unable to commit new crime! That’s the result of true hard work and focus when every black criminal has to do the work of ten to fifteen white criminals.

    I thought about trying to explain evolutionary theory and subject:verb agreement, but then I realized that very evolution – some 50,000-100,000 years worth – would make any such effort in vain. So I’ll leave it here and simply say congratulations again for your astonishingly consistent excellence in commission of crimes. Your determination to ignore all distractions such as parenting or supporting your children, avoidance of legitimate work and study, and your natural aptitude for violence and theft have paid off in spades! Once again, for the 151st consecutive year, you Africans have won the “Most Prolific Criminals in America” award.

    I can’t wait for the upcoming “Most Illiterate” and “Most STD Infected” global awards next month. I have a sneaking suspicion you Africans will once again walk away with all the honors!

  • Stan D Mute

    Sadly that’s true. But we will have the last laugh when Africans are left with the Mexicans vastly outnumbering them and no whites to pay for the welfare checks or operate the farms. You do realize that Mexicans *really* can’t stand Africans? Surely you’ve noticed what they’ve done to you already in Southern California? And that without whites taking pity to feed, clothe, and house you while you whine about “raaaaycists,” Afro-Americans will quickly begin to resemble Ethiopians? Maybe the Mexicans will toss you a taco once a week?

    I’m all for reparations for blacks as long as there is a repatriation clause included. Give them a chunk of money to renounce their citizenship and move to the black nation of their choice. That would be a much better deal than having to take care of them from cradle to crematorium and being forced to live around them in between.

    • the sound the flood the hour

      That is actually a really good idea but we would have to have a sound immigration system to keep people from being able collect money multiple times by leaving the country then sneaking back in.

      • Melvin Bonzarelli

        One more thing that you don’t and won’t read about in our news media is the multiple welfare scams going on across the Atlantic in England and Ireland. Thousands of African immigrants into England are collecting welfare since they are uninterested in actually finding a job. And these same people take a short plane flight to the Republic of Ireland (which has a growing African population) and collecting welfare there too. These leeches don’t work, shack up with the local white girls, make lots of babies for bigger welfare checks, and are living large.
        Don’t believe me? check it out on YouTube.

          They are not African, they are “The New Irish” and the government LOVES them.

          Did you notice that Alan Shatter has resigned recently in response to some scandal? As far as i can tell he played a huge role in bringing mass immigration and multiculturalism to Ireland. Let’s hope his policies are reversed.

    Blacks attempting to sound erudite love malapropisms.
    There was an aggressively obnoxious black troll on SBPDL who fancied himself highly educated and articulate.
    He entertained us regularly with his malapropism laden whining comments.

    • Laika

      IN the old minstrel shows, blacks would dress up in top hat and tails and then recite garbage, poetry and drivel with all kinds of big words they obviously didn’t get, malapropisms they didn’t understand and the white audiences would laugh uproariously.

      It was comedy, just as it is today, except for cultural marxists who tell us it’s “poetry,” and “great writing,” like what Maya Angelou wrote or what this Ti-Nishi writes.

      It should be mocked and laughed at because it IS the latest incarnation of the old minstrel shows.

  • IncogManDotCom

    “…the kind of trenchant racism to which black people have persistently been subjected .”

    I reckon he meant “entrenched racism.”

    Why is it that I can always tell when a black is writing. They usually reach and strain too hard with words but don’t cut it. Isn’t this fellow supposed to be some kind of poet laureate? Affirmative action sugz I guess.

    • shmo123

      I agree. The use of language by many blacks is often poor and inappropriate. I don’t know whether they feel the need to sound “intellectual” or should possess a large vocabulary by virtue of completing an education, if they had one. It reminds me the Wizard conferring a degree of “Thinkology” on the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz.

    When reparations come up I always wonder about who exactly gets paid.

    I’ve had my DNA tested and I know I’m 100% of European ancestry, but the govt doesn’t know that, and there are plenty of examples of people who look white but who have black ancestry. If I claim I have black ancestry, who is going to tell me I’m wrong?

    Repeat in Detroit, Camden, Philly, Chicago, Gary, Indiana, St. Louis and any other city where blacks have moved in. Yes, heartbreaking.

    If the WW II generation knew what was coming, they would have, and should have, turned on the government instead of Whites in Europe who were trying to stop the Bolsheviks. Now, the Bolsheviks are in control of the U.S.

    • LHathaway

      It’s quite an interesting comment, that the WWII generation who won the West might be confused, or broken hearted, in seeing the end result of their efforts. Somehow, you turn that around in your post into one that would gain little sympathy for them. They might, indeed, be spinning in their graves.

      It would be a great investment in our future security.
      Abe Lincoln the great emancipator saw the future as far as race relations. He stated that slavery was an evil practice but never envisioned harmony between the races. Any country/city with a substantial percentage of Afros or Muslims is a country in turmoil; the USA being a perfect example as are now London, Paris and Naples where Nigerian gangs intimidate even la Camorra, the Napolitano version
      of the Sicilian MAFIA.

    They’re still dragging out the KKK who mostly show up to demonstrate. Has anyone been raped or beaten and murdered by a gang of Hooded Klansmen lately?
    I saw a video of a KKK march a couple of year ago. There were a handful of Klansmen being cursed at and having stuff thrown at them by a multitude of White people.

    • Juggernaut3000

      KKK is made up of (obvious) undercover FBI agents trying to “rut” out white supremacists. The one that led the Skokie march years ago, complete with Nazi uniform, and that the ACLU claimed they supported, was a Jewish child rapist.
      The SPLC needs to keep the KKK white terror line alive for fundraising purposes. But for us, KKK and Nazis would be jack-booting in the streets…but for American law, child rapists and pedophiles would be marching in the street.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

        From what I heard, one of her teachers wrote only in cursive during class, simply to bully black students. An ABC filmcrew tried to get these incidents on tape, and gave ms.Jeantell a hidden camera to record this display of white privilege and racism.Unfortunately, she ate it. The ABC production team left disillusioned, and decided to sue the producer for ”discriminating against blacks by not providing safety instructions in ebonics”. This story will be continued.

    If the descendants of slave owners were required to pay reparations for slavery, that would even have to include black people. This is because during the time our nation had slavery, free blacks themselves owned slaves.

    Free blacks who owned slaves would work them hard and whip them, just the same as any white slave owner.

    But if blacks are entitled to reparations for slavery, let’s not stop there. Then there should also be reparations even to white people. In the 17th and 18th Centuries, many of the white so-called “indentured servants” did not become such slaves because they signed a contract because out of economic necessity. They were often kidnapped from the streets and country side in Great Britain and elsewhere in Europe, sold to ship captains, and then sold in either the Caribbean islands like Barbados, and of course in the American colonies. Their slavery was supposed to only be temporary, but they lived under such horrendous conditions that they often did not survive the term of their indenture.

    Jews rightfully received reparations for the Nazi Holocaust. Japanese-Americans rightfully received reparations for the WW2 wrongful imprisonment in internment camps. But unfortunately, no Ukrainian was ever paid reparations from Russia for when in the 1930’s the Soviet Union, under the dictatorship of Joseph Stalin, created an artificial famine that starved to death seven million, or more, Ukrainians.

    If America is to pay reparations for all of our nation’s past wrongs, then our nation should also pay reparations to the Cherokee Indians for the Trail of Tears. And also pay reparations to the descendants of Loyalists now living in Canada. Whose ancestors had their property confiscated, and were exiled from their homes in the new United States of America, because of the Revolutionary War. And of course, the list could go on and on!

    Unfortunately, we live in a world that is very unfair! We do not live in the parallel universes of THE BRADY BUNCH, GILLIGAN’S ISLAND, or NARNIA.

    Instead of making demands for reparations for slavery, it would better if black people would just pull themselves up by their own bootstraps and make something of their lives, with such examples as Neil deGrasse Tyson of the TV show COSMOS, Mayor Michael Nutter of Philadelphia where I live, Tiger Woods, actor Denzel Washington, and Ken Hamblin.

      That my friend is an absolute fact! I know a black man who lives in the same “projects” my financially troubled but truly sweet aunt lived in. His name is Derell, spoken as “Dur-Rell”. He’s in his early 50’s yet talks, acts, dresses and lives just like the teenage black guys do. He lives in this “projects” with his 70 something year old mother and has his entire life. He’s constantly in and out of jail because like his younger homies he makes his measly living from selling drugs and committing petty crime. He never had a car, never had a home or even an apartment of his own, but he got 20 pairs of $250 Air Jordan sneakers.

      He’ll show up outside his mom’s house in perfectly fresh clothes, shoes and tons of jewelery. He considers himself something of a ladies man, and appears to get all “G’d up” in an effort to impress the local ladies of the “projects”. A couple months down the road he’ll stop me or my cousin asking if we want to buy some of his jewelery. And I’ll notice as time goes by he’ll get a little less fresh in his clothing and a little less jewelery every time I see him. He basically will sell all his stuff off to cover debts and what not. Finally he’ll look like an average guy without all his “bling” and what not. Keep in mind this will all happen over just a couple of months or so.

      Then, he’ll come into some money and all of a sudden, we see him and he’s once again “fresh to deff” as he would say. The shoes, gold jewelery, clothes the whole deal. Basically, this idiot would go back out and buy all the same crap he just got done selling all over again. He does this over and over and over again, ritually. Every time I see this guy I think, man, this dude is unbelievably stupid! The craziest part is that there are at least a half dozen other guys in the same “projects”. Who I never talk to but seem to have the same “old black dude living with mom” status, and appear to go through those same cycles.

  • Raw England

    Using 1950 as the start point – the point at which the cancer of Third World immigration really infected us – I’ve concluded that blacks have cost White people in the region of 100 Trillion pounds, or thereabouts.

    And then there’s the countless times they’ve viciously, savagely murdered or soiled White men and women.

    Then there’s the many White cities and societies they’re destroyed.

    Since we Whites are, by our genetics and race, suicidally tolerant and forgiving, instant mass deportation of all blacks and non-Whites may suffice.

    I just read this thing again for the third time, and am amazed yet again with how much sense it makes. Every sentence written by the demi-god known as Jared Taylor contain pearls of wisdom that we should commit to memory as suits of armor, shields, helmets, or weapons against the evil and depraved situation we whites find ourselves in today. We need to change the future for the sake of our children, no matter what it takes really, and speak the truth quietly and firmly to and about black manipulation of white people’s lives, liberty, and property. To allow it to continue is sickening. Reading the above article just brings it home again what absolute shamelessness Ta-Nehisi (what???) Coates and his ilk have to think our wallets are theirs to filch whenever blacks decide they want Whitey to pay for any of their numerous whims.
