    Now that America has elected a black (half) President payment in the form of reparations for black people will probably happen within 5 years.

    Reparations for slavery is a proposal by some in the United States and is supported by the "Obamaites". Some type of compensation should be provided to the descendants of the Negro enslaved people, in consideration of the labor provided for free over several centuries, which has been a powerful and influential factor in the development of the country.

    This compensation has been proposed in a variety of forms, from individual monetary payments to community-based improvement schemes related to health and education, to direct cash payments to all people of Negro heritage.

    The idea remains highly controversial and no broad consensus exists as to how it could be implemented. There have been similar calls for reparations from some Caribbean countries, and some African countries have called for reparations to their states for the loss of their population.

    It will happen now that Obama is in charge.

    That is just as much racist as giving areas where black people live less money, while white people also pay taxes it is undeniably unfair to use their money only for black people.

    I think we should do it, it would set a precedent for such things. I then could demand reperations from Egypt for holding my ancestors as slaves.......

    Obama just ordered the creation of the "Office of Urban Affairs." Would you call that reparations? I would.

    I don't think whites get it. Whites think Obama and his legion of haters love them. They believe the kumbaya multiracial shit. They're in for a surprise.

    I'm shocked and dismayed at the attitude that seems to prevail about this. We owe our black brothers and sisters money so let's pay them. America forced Germany to pay reparations to the Jews. What's "good for the goose should be good for the gander". Jews or Negros, both were treated the same, both Germay and the USA owe reparations. Germany has paid now it's the turn of the USA.

    Obama will do it.

    Listen......the civil rights movement happened in 1963. That was 46 years ago, which is over 1 generation (a generation is considered to be approx 30 years).

    Now.....since there are very few people today, who have lived as slaves here in America, and opportunities have abounded for a while (I'm aware of since 1982, when I joined the Navy), why the fuck should we pay someone for something that happened over 200 years ago?

    Nope.......they have the same opportunities as me. Why do they need reparations?

    I don't owe anyone shit. My ancestors didn't own slaves. I am 1/8 Native American. Where are my goddamn reparations?
