Poll: Millennials more open to idea of slavery reparations

As older white men die out, and this country becomes more diverse, more forward thinking, and less white-dominated, there eventually will be reparations for slavery and Jim Crow laws. And rightfully so. The harmful legacy of 200 years of slavery and 100 years of Jim Crow has hurt communities of color to this day. Communities do not simply recover from centuries of oppression and abuse without outside help.

For those of you who snarkily say "oh, all the slaves are dead now," need to remember that those slaves had children, grandchildren, etc. who live today. The effects of growing up being treated like a piece of furniture, being banned from receiving an education or finding a job, is nothing that can be wiped away with a wave of the hand. There needs to be a full apology from the white community in this country for the evils of Slavery and Jim Crow laws, and reparations to help the African American community recover from 400 years of subjugation and pain.

It can't be helped how stupid these people are. There are no slaves and haven't been any for over 150 years.

All you proved is that millennials are stupid and gullible.

But the painful legacy of slavery and centuries of discrimination still hurt people of color to this day.

The Case for Reparations
So right, there are no slaves.
There are descendants of slaves whose ancestors suffered under Jim Crow Laws, and who are this day condemned to poverty and destitution by the legacy of Slavery, Jim Crow laws, and institutional racism which continues to this day.

Also, the mass incarceration of people of color in this country, and the use of prisoners for forced labor under inhumane conditions, is more or less slavery.

The real reason they are in poverty is because momma had them out of wedlock because she was lured into it by welfare, and they grew up without a father and became criminals as a result.

Let's ask them if they'd like it added to their college loan balances?

The liberal welfare plantation is the main thing hurting them today. Blaming slavery is a scam left wingers use to justify more socialism.
No. The thing that hurts people of color the most today is white racism, police racial profiling, a broken education system, mass incarceration, and rampant gun violence with guns smuggled into the cities from states with loose gun laws.

Wait until the millennials are not getting the reparations from their parents paychecks.

Democrats run most of the cities wherein these problems are rampant, and have for decades.

So, 'splain.

Democrats are responsible for the broken education problem. The other claims are all proven bullshit.

I never knew that Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, etc. were left wing places.

Because that's where most of the crime, gun violence, blatant racism, terrible education systems, etc. are found

Well you can take the money out of your pocket and pay them!

Also I am willing to bet you believe Slavery was black Africans and have no clue what it was like back then for Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians and the Irish!

Also you should know that Blacks also owned slaves in those days:

More money than ever is being spent on public schools. Yet, they still suck. They are staffed by liberals and run by liberals. Who is responsible for their low quality if not liberals?
