    So what do you call affirmative action and aid and scholarship programs favoring blacks that have been in effect since the 70s? I'm tired of hearing the lie that blacks have had it hard for the last few decades. The truth is they've had it better than others. If they can't do it with all of special treatment and privileges we've given them in the past decades, then I don't know what to tell them. Free money isn't going to change anything just like allowing pro black systemic discrimination against white people (affirmative action) hasn't. As for slavery, blame the black slave traders who sold fellow blacks to white people. Why does that become white people's fault?

    So. I don't think individuals should get reparations.  HOWEVER  I do believe 100% that black communities should! Black communities today are effects of slavery abc segregation. This country brought blacks here stripped their identities, murdered, raped, wouldn't teach them to read, gave unequal opportunities,  kept them from neighborhoods, separated families, tortured black men, and brought drugs into the neighborhoods.

    Because they don't deserve it. Why do you think they do? Because people who had the same skin color as them were sold into slavery hundreds of years ago by people who also had black skin? What does that have to do with black people today? It's as absurd as Russians and the Chinese demanding reparations from the Mongolians for what happened hundreds of years ago. 

    Blacks who live in white countries like the USA have it good. They may not realize it but they have it much better than most people around the world. There's no such thing as white privilege but there definitely is such a thing as white nation privilege wherein people regardless of race in white countries have a higher standard of living and regard than people in other countries.

    The only Blacks deserving of reparations are former slaves or children of them THEY are the only ones directly injured by the institution of slavery. How many of those do you know of? EVERY Black today in America has had full access to the American Dream. There isn't a vocation a Black person has not done today. Just WHAT would reparations do that THEY haven't been able to do on their own. 

    The only thing keeping any of them from achieving is the same things keeping some Whites from achieving, namely economic...the equal opportunity oppressor. Broken families is also a problem which opens Black kids up to dead-end gang affiliations. NONE of this can be fixed by throwing a little money at it in the form of reparations.

    Friend when Israel became slaves to the Egyptians they cried out to God to save them God came along with Moses and delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians.

    he caused the Egyptians to give the Israelites articles made of gold and silver and then he led them out of Egypt.

    Well friend that is proper reparations you give the people that you had enslaved money and then you send them home!  

    You do not let them stay in your country you give them money for the slavery that you did to their mothers and their fathers.  And then you get them gone from your land and you do not let them come back.

    Friend this is the fault of the white man the white man did not do what he was supposed to have done you pay for the slavery that happened back in 1800 at the rate of pay that you would have received back in 1800 then you get returned to your native home land and don't come back anymore.

    How many N'egroes alive today were ever held as slaves and how many Caucasians alive today were ever slave owners?  Why should ANYTHING be paid to or by ANYONE not involved in slavery?  NO ONE is responsible for what their great-great-great grandparents MIGHT have done.
