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?


Alright this has just gotten stupid.

So what do you want a tax break for blacks "by how much", the government to send a check? How would the blacks get the money is what I want to know.


Look it up. Im not gonna explain how taxes work.


So short answer you don't know how you would to implement it. Although this is a moot point since no politicians from the left are actually calling for reparations.

So where have you posted your ideal implementation of this plan for us to look up?

Also, you didn't address my question of me getting some of these reparations even though some of my ancestors were essentially slaves.

Well you started off with a stupid statement that misrepresented my argument so I dont care to engage or explain my viewpoints to you.

I already determined that I'm not going to argue with anyone who thinks "that's just stupid," without an explanation is debate worthy.

Not naming any names... but some people are clearly less capable of intelligent discussion.

Who cares? I didnt own a slave, so why would I pay reparations?

Reparations for things that happened to their ancestors over 200 years ago? That's very absurd knowing that many of the slaves were captured by the "superior" African tribes in return for goods. I don't see Native Americans getting compensation for the systematic land plundering of their original territorial lands and genocide of their ancestral tribesmen, other than receiving small reservations full of poverty and empty promises.

It is too late for Blacks to ask for reparations. Blacks should have asked for that back in the 1960s during the Civil Rights era. What should have been demanded was land. Instead asking for equality they should have demanded the government to give them Mississippi and maybe even Louisiana.

The idea of paying reparations is stupid. I never owned slaves, my parents never did, my grandparents never own slaves, and no one I know nor their parents or grand parents were slaves. So why should anyone get respiration for shit that didn't even happen to them and why should people like me have to pay more taxes or whatever so these people can get free money for stuff that didn't happen to them?

blah blah complaining about taxes once again ^
