Reparations are the MOST stupid idea ever. Africans sold defeated tribes into slavery and profited from that. Go ask them for money....and get a job. Stop looking for handouts.

Economist Jason Hickel in his book The Divide: Global Inequality From Conquest To Free Markets estimated that during slavery 1619-1865 amerikkka got over 222 million hours of free labor. At the minimum wage and with a little interest that labor is worth 92 trillion dollars. And that's just during slavery. It doesn't take into account the years of Jim Crow and the years of systemic governmental economic deprivation since. That's what is owed to #ADOS and it's time to demand payment. Cut the damn check !!!

What if white people just took the blame for their actions, stop being racists, truthfully apologize, and we all move on? I think it's the denial of the whole slavery/Jim Crow/discrimination/supremist/ attitude is doing the continual damage. Look at Germany: they were Nazis. Since the end of the war, they owned up to their mistakes, fixed the problems, and moved on. Look at Japan: they have NOT owned up to their war crimes, attempt to just "forget about it", and try to move on as if the whole thing never happened. Anyone see the differences?

Reparations would be rewarding people for the color of their skin or heritage and that is racist and supposed to be illegal. If an individual can show he or she was unfairly treated they can sue. Oh yeah, you can already do that. Therefore, reparations = NO.

The division between whites and blacks is too large for our races to live under a single government. Blacks will always feel like they are persecuted under whites, and whites will always feel taken advantage of by blacks. The time has come for America to split into separate countries. Balkanization is the only way forward.

@Xavier Falls There are many discussions online about what the white ethnostate will look like, and from what I've seen, many people in support of separation will be fine with a country consisting of 85% white people, leaving 15% for everyone else. Just know that there will be no welfare state for blacks and no government positions available for blacks. This will be a nation for whites, governed by whites. If you're fine with theses conditions, and you live within the borders of the new nation prior to the separation, you will not be kicked out. There will not be violent deportations of non-whites. The non-whites who already live in the area can stay, but non-whites will not be allowed in once the country is formed.

Slavery and other obvious forms of it: serfdom, indentured servitude etc., have been a feature of human society since time immemorial, so depending on where you would like to start the clock, practically all human beings would be due reparations. Before the Europeans showed up and began the transatlantic slave trade, the warlike Fon subjugated many west African ethnicities; the Ghun, the Mina, the Yorubans, etc. They massacred most, and sold off most of the rest, a convenient way to preemptively diffuse potential uprisings.
Slavery exists today in Africa, perpetuated by Africans. For example, It's common for families to sell their children into domestic servitude.
The north African Muslims and Islamic Tartars traders were credited with the abduction into slavery of at least 150 million white slaves, notably about 50 million taken from the area now known as the Ukraine, which is where we get the term "slave", from Slav, or slavic.
80% of the black African slaves went to north Africa. The males were castrated and force marched across the desert. Females were used as sex slaves. Their offspring were murdered. The remaining 20% went to the new world, 12 million. 10 million survived the boat ride. Most of these went to Brazil. 400k went to the US.
5% of the US population owned slaves at the height of the American plantation era, some of the slave owners were black. The Irish were also enslaved in the US. Indeed they were used for more dangerous work because they were cheaper than the Africans and were considered more expendable.
Most current citizens are descendants from people who came over later and have had nothing to do with slavery.
It makes little sense to make them pay.
Reparations make little sense in light of the fact that most of us are children of the children of slaves in all likelihood.
Best solution in my opinion, now that it is some places, is for each to take up the reins of their lives and go about making the world a better place.

Public housing and schools have been built, trillions poured into and continue to be poured into the black community for all kinds of services. But money doesn't change the mentality of the slave. Free people take their lives in hand. Only slaves have other people manage their lives and cover the costs. No freedom without discipline or risk of failure. I am all for helping people who need it. However, help is most effective when its between people who know each other. Accountability and responsibility avoids the abuse of good faith. Collective reward or punishment overlooks individual history, advantage or status and is inherently unfair.

First off, the only country in the Western Hemisphere who ended slavery first, becoming the FIRST BLACK republic is Haiti. That lady need to get her facts right before making her judgements. And there are many other countries who were free of slavery before America. stop making it seem like America did everything first when everyone knows that slavery lasted basically a trillion years after every country received their freedom.

If you want to sell reparations to the voting public the best way would be as the "Reparations/Stimulus program". It might weaken the moral authority of the program, but it would also get you a few votes. Say you're implementing a massive affirmative action program to bring the African Americans into the middle class. One hazard I see here is that the blacks might not want to settle for being middle class. They want to be the owners on the plantations.

An anthropology professor at OU told us that every white person in Louisiana is at least 1/32 black. Do you think they should get reparations? I knew a girl who was 1/254 Cherokee, and she was getting full Indian benefits. Do you think we should give reparations strictly in cash? Well, there goes another two and a half trillion dollars added to the national debt. The money we give might not be much more than paper by the time we finish paying for our wars and reparations. I'm wondering if we should give compensation in the shape of very good deals on homes. Fuck this business of whites leaving your homes after they die. That won't stimulate the economy. It would be better to build new homes for blacks. Do you think they should only be segregated among other black households? If we do give reparations, and I'm still not convinced we should, we should do it in a way that stimulates the economy.

White coal miners died by the thousands in the coal mines. White children had their fingers torn off in dangerous machinery. Two out of five construction workers were disabled erecting the skyscrapers of New York City. Fifty per cent of all children died before they were six. Yes, slavery was bad, but it existed in some form in every society in the world until the mid nineteenth century. Maybe we do owe blacks something for the way they were put down. But blacks are not the only ones who suffered in the past.

If you give reparations to blacks they'll spend it all and still live on government assistance. You'll just be throwing good money after bad. It would actually be more productive to offer every black person $10,000 to leave the U.S. with a no-return policy once they sign for the money. I guarantee ALL white people would be okay with that.

Also the Japanese and the Indians got reparations, even the Jews, despite that they were murdered by Germans and not the U.S. but yet they're receiving reparations from the U.S. also America tolerates racism, and would it not be a good thing for Whites so that the Blacks can use that reparations money to leave the U.S.?

Unfortunately reparations can no longer be done justly. Both the victims of slaver and the perpetrators are dead.

Reparations have been and continue to be paid:
$7 billion annually since 1965
Welfare to single mothers ( black single motherhood hovers around 70 percent of the demographic)… Annually $1.4 billion from 1960 to 1992, climbing to $7.9 billion as of 2001
(2.2 million dollars accounted for, estimated 9 billion lost in fraud) also known as “Lifeline Assistance”. More than 20 million Americans have already received a free Obama Phone and get 250 free cell phone minutes every month.
Planned Parenthood - Services to Black Communities represent half of all abortionsPP receives appx 500 million per year (1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from 2013 to 2015)
One spending citation that indicates the level of spending power: “Over a three-year period, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates spent $288 million in federal funds. They also received $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid, which combines federal and state funds.”
Under Bush Senior and on into the crisis under Obama, banks were obliged to accept the financing of credit lines when people with more melanin in their skins asked for them, regardless of whether they could realistically pay back the loan. The result was the catastrophic housing bubble that shook the world economy. People often blame the banks for being greedy, but it was actually a guilt-driven wish to diminish inequalities in society that resulted in the crisis.
The US government is supposedly an equal opportunity employer, a noble policy that has translated into a discriminatory preference for black and female applicants. So we can consider the creation of jobs granted to poor blacks and latinos around the administration of “reparation funding” to be itself part of the reparations. We must assume that billions have already been invested and continue to flow into that as well.
Its well known that charities use up somewhere between 80 and 90 percent of the donations they receive in administration. We have to assume that the government is no better at managing affairs, since they are not accountable for mismanagement and they have a large, conscripted source of revenue: tax payers, especially the top ten percent of the wealthy.
“The federal government, which included the U.S. Postal Service, showed the highest average compensation at $70,100, annually or $33.70 per hour, for its 2,710,740 workers. State government had mean annual wages of $53,180, or $25.57 hourly, for 4,552,850 employees.”
“U.S. Department Of Labor pays its employees an average of $77,462 a year. Salaries at U.S. Department Of Labor range from an average of $47,326 to $125,940 a year.
As of Nov 14, 2018, the Dept of Labor employed 125 million workers”
“In carrying out this mission, the Department of Labor administers and enforces more than 180 federal laws and thousands of federal regulations. These mandates and the regulations that implement them cover many workplace activities for about 10 million employers and 125 million workers.”

Poverty does not seem to have disappeared in that ethnic group, even though many are economically mobile. Poverty hasn't disappeared among white people either. It begs the question, if the billions thrown at the problem are working. Do you know what percentage of say, affirmative action goes to whites? I am pretty sure the Obama phone was not available to white people. Most planned parenthood clinics are stationed in black neighborhoods. Many white people have suffered poverty and thousands were slaves as well in the same period. Perhaps their families are to receive something? I was told there were reparations for the Jews but I didn't receive a cent. I scratched my way out of the gutter as an abandoned child, live close to the bone and have never been on the dole. How many generations should get reparations if poverty persists in a demographic? What about all the white Europeans and Americans who died to stop slavery? Are their families owed something? What about all the white people who were still slaves in north Africa a decade after the US emancipation?

White lady at 3:11 need a serious fact check. She could have at least went to wilkipedia before she made the comment about America being the first country to end slavery. America was dam near the last country to end slavery along with Brazil. Even European countries ended slavery well before America did.

No sane person can defend slavery. But to try to correct something generations later by paying the descendants is not going to correct that injustice. Who would actually get paid and how much? It is such a sensitive issue I don’t think anyone can pay enough to justify what was done to slaves. I hear plenty of arguments for reparations, but no one has explained a reasonable plan to do it.

I'm a Democrat and this is absolutely one of the dumbest ideas I have ever heard of.Just when my party looks like it could take back the whole congress and presidency,some jackass liberals dream this nonsense up! Hell no, slavery ended several decades and generations ago.There isn't one person alive that was a slave.It sounds like a way to win the black vote but not at the cost of every white person saying NO.Stupid ass liberals could F up a good day with one word.

If Democrats were convinced they were going to win the Congress and White House, they would not be trying for impeachment. Now, had they went to Washington and worked in 2018. Absolutely. But, they did what Republicans did. Instead of working, they did Russia, Russia, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Now they have NO record to run on that they can use to throw the bum out of the White House. It won't be talk of reparations that causes them to lose. It'll be ineptness.

FACT ! Reparations were given from America to American and British slave owners because slavery ended and lost their “ property “ . After ww 2 Jews were paid reparations native Americans were paid reparations for being killed .

Hahahahahaha I’ll bet not a single one of these retards have any idea where the slaves were sold from and who sold them!!!!! On the Horn of Africa there was a significant port where Spanish, Dutch, Eastern Europeans and AFRICANS all purchased slaves from other AFRICANS!!! The first African didn’t even step foot in “the new land” until 1619 and there was 19 slaves......19. The individuals responsible stayed in Africa as slave owners!!! Good luck🖕🏻
