Yeah thats kinda how taxes work. Thats life dude.


Don't want to come out as arrogant or anything but "That's life dude" isn't an argument. I'll just leave it here I guess.


It wasnt meant to be. I was acknowledging your point but unlike you I accept that its normal.

So you would punish every race in America for the past. Gotcha

On the subject reparations are already being paid in the form of grants only for black students to go to college, diversity quotas in the workplace and if you're a minority that chooses to go to school in an area the has very few of said minority they qualify for more money.

I dont consider taxes to be a punishment. Its a civil duty.

Also, the article is in desperate need of a bibliography.

It also should be noted that slavery had huge benefits to the land owners in the south who by proxy had a huge influence on politics. With the north and federal law largely moving towards the outlawing of slavery they would push there money behind politicians who were for seceding. So in a roundabout way it was about slavery.


This is also a good read.

I mean finding an article with a bibliography on this particular website is going to be hard. Just seems to be how they roll.

Megahobbit, why are you intent on paying entitled ni-... I mean...

Why do you think this is necessary? You do know many, many whites were enslaved as well, right?

That's like saying Britain to pay royalties to my family because we are Irish and Irish people were used as cannon fodder during the First World War... we all need to just calm down and not ask for ridiculous things like compensation for things the whole world is guilty of, like slavery

Again, touche. Nevertheless, an article devoted to refuting ideas with factual information should at least cite a few sources. They don't necessarily need an entire bibliography, but they could give a mention here or there about where they got which information from -- perhaps a link to another site or a page from a certain book.

So going by your logic if any people from Africa move to the US they should have a higher tax rate to make up for any possible ancestors that sold slaves to the Americans. After all if they didn't trade slaves to the Americans we would never have got hooked on the slave trade.

Oh and I already pay taxes telling people to pay more would only hurt the middle class and the poor class more, but all in the name of social justice.
Oh am I glad most politicians would be voted out of office if they tried this.

So you would give them ALL the taxes?

Also, since I have ancestors that were essentially brought over as slave labor, should I get a share of all these taxes even though I am white?
