Reparationists Are Modern Day Grifters
If not for it being so demonstrably Erebusic, watching the lengths the purveyors of white guilt are willing to go to spread like manure their damnable heterodoxies and lies, could cause sane people to laugh. But, alas, their penchant for the inculcation of blame, guilt, and inferiority is worthy only of the harshest scorn.
Even more idiotic than those spouting the lies of climate change, is the idiocy of blacks as they set about using shame and bully tactics to blackmail institutions and/or businesses out of tens of millions of dollars.to extort money vis-a`-vis “reparations.” The idea of reparations started out based upon the fallacious construct that blacks, or Africans as they were, would have been better off staying in Africa, i.e., the “motherland.”
But that lie contained a sinister reality that could not be ignored nor explained away. As Michael Medved brilliantly points out: The idea of reparations rests on the notion of making up to the descendants of slaves for the incalculable damage done to their family status and welfare by the enslavement of generations of their ancestors. In theory, reparationists want society to repair the wrongs of the past by putting today’s African-Americans into the sort of situation they would have enjoyed if their forebears hadn’t been kidnapped, sold and transported across the ocean. Unfortunately, to bring American blacks in line with their cousins who the slave-traders left behind in Africa would require a drastic reduction in their wealth, living standards, and economic and political opportunities. No honest observer can deny or dismiss this nation’s long record of racism and injustice, but it’s also obvious that Americans of African descent enjoy vastly greater wealth and human rights of every variety than the citizens of any nation of the Mother Continent. If we sought to erase the impact of slavery on specific black families, we would need to obliterate the spectacular economic progress made by those families (and by US citizens in general) over the last 100 years. In view of the last century of history in Nigeria or Ivory Coast or Sierra Leone or Zimbabwe, could any African American say with confidence that he or she would have fared better had some distant ancestor not been enslaved? Of course, those who seek reparations would also cite the devastating impact of Western colonialism in stunting African progress, but the United States played virtually no role in the colonization of the continent. The British, French, Italians, Portuguese, Germans and others all established brutal colonial rule in Africa; tiny Belgium became a particularly oppressive and bloodthirsty colonial power in the Congo. The United States, on the other hand, sponsored only one long-term venture on the African continent: the colony of Liberia, an independent nation set up as a haven for liberated American slaves who wanted to go “home.” The fact that so few availed themselves of the opportunity, or heeded the back-to-African exhortations of turn- of-the-century Black Nationalist Marcus Garvey, reflects the reality that descendants of slaves understood they were better off remaining in the United States, for all its faults. (Six Inconvenient Truths About The U.S. and Slavery; Michael Medved; Townhall.com; 9/26/2007)
The idea of reparations started out based upon the fallacious construct that blacks, or Africans as they were, would have been better off staying in Africa, i.e., the “motherland.
Medved concludes: “In short, politically correct assumptions about America’s entanglement with slavery lack any sense of depth, perspective or context. As with so many other persistent lies about this fortunate land, the unthinking indictment of the United States as uniquely blameworthy for an evil institution ignores the fact that the record of previous generations provides some basis for pride as well as guilt.”
But like any self-serving groups committed to the attainment of something for nothing and using skin color as blackmail to secure same, these blacks soldiered on. Which led to the transmogrifying of reparations based on the myth that blacks would be better off today if they had stayed in Africa to an even greater myth of black slaves built America.
The scandalous and shameful demands, that are nothing more than using skin color to extort money that will never in a hundred lifetimes benefit the misidentified blacks who are portrayed as the progeny of victimized slaves cannot be overstated.
These grifters identify an institution or business with deep pockets, that 152 years ago or longer, used slave labor in some capacity. Then, using shame and bullying tactics they set about extorting money and benefits from them. Money and benefits that will never be shared with the masses but used to the exclusivity of the grifters and their families and friends.
My suggestion to blacks demanding reparations is this. They should showcase their building skills by rebuilding Trenton and Camden, New Jersey, by rebuilding Detroit, Oakland, Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, and every other city/town they have turned into cesspools of filth, drugs, gangs, and rundown buildings.
Then again, maybe that’s all these people are capable of building, i.e., filth, immiseration, and an inculcated mentality of “the white man owes me because I’m black.”
