    You hold yourself in high esteem on an anonymous board.

    $6 in reparations sounds about right. :hyper:

    It doesn't, but if you expect reparations you need to have proof.

    I dont expect reparations. Its a fool that would trust white people to pay their debts. Thats like expecting white people not to be racist.

    What is interesting about it?

    The idea of paying descendants of slaves is stupid enough, but the union soldiers were not taken from their homelands by force and then sold to other human beings.

    How about paying off the white guys denied privileged jobs from Quota inceptions of the 1970's and 1980's. Basically the second half of the baby boomers. No one talks about that.

    That money should go instead to all the Black people that were discriminated against during Jim Crow era which spanned multiple decades.
