    The children are not responsible for the sins of the fathers.

    While agree, im surprised you said that since the whole concept of sin involves God and you dislike God for some reason.

    Race relations aren't good now. All this does is push people closer to an all out race war.

    I don't "dislike" God, I simply don't believe in the existence of an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, divine entity.

    Scary thought. Who created all of this then? Chance? Something couldnt come from nothing could it?

    I believe in God. I just don't believe in all these bullshit Religions. I'll worship him in my own way.

    Anybody see Dave Chapelle's skit on what would happen if reparations were paid? I was LMAO.
    I however do not see how a fair minded person would want to get paid for something they had nothing to do with (other than their great great great grandfather was a slave). Even still shouldn't the people in Africa who sold the slaves to Europeans be held accountable? I believe the cost of lives lost in America during the civil war would be more than enough to cover the "reparations payment" :blowup:
