On February 25th, 1913, the 16th Amendment of the United States Constitution was ratified. This amendment created the income tax. Today, every working American must pay income tax unless their income is below a certain level. Since 1913 blacks have paid federal income taxes to help finance programs and policies that have excluded us. Most states began income taxes during Jim Crow Apartheid, and working blacks paid income taxes that helped states implement policies enforcing apartheid.

More than 50 billion dollars (based on 1930’s value) was spent on The New Deal and Servicemen's Readjustment Act. That amount equals over 1 trillion dollars in today's money. Both programs are credited with providing a significant boost to wealth accumulation in America. Both policies excluded vast numbers of black who worked and paid taxes. Federal housing policies kept blacks segregated in poorly built or maintained property using tax dollars working blacks paid. Education, paid for by tax dollars blacks pay into the system, continues underfunding schools in black neighborhoods. Blacks pay taxes to fund law enforcement who kill blacks at three times our population, even as whites are more than double the arrests. Tax money working blacks pay into the system allocated for social services or community development are not equally invested in organizations, services, or policies that would increase positive outcomes in black communities. When the discussion is about reparations, we can leave slavery out of the debate and still demand trillions of dollars from city, county, state, and federal governments for policies that have denied or continues to deny equal protection as defined by American law.

So it's time for the I'm not going to pay my money people to shut up. Blacks have paid for most everything whites have today. Literally from slavery to this moment. While a lot of our communities remain underdeveloped and underserved, black tax dollars fund white community development. Black dollars drawing interest in white banks get loaned to white entrepreneurs to start businesses while blacks get denied. So let's set the record straight, blacks have paid taxes for 109 years and have watched whites get things we have been refused.

"Blacks have paid for most everything whites have today."

I don't see any of your money paying my mortgage.
Stupid. You see the black tax dollars that helped pay for the streets you drive on, and probably to the company that built your house.

Whites, Blacks, Hispanics and Asians pay, so what is your point?

You are the minority even in the Tax Paying, so I am at a loss at why you even care unless someone claimed Black don’t pay their fair share which is a damn lie…

If Black folks were so unfairly taxed, then I suggest you protest that by not paying any more taxes.

Be sure to let us know how that worked out for you. :laughing0301:

Picking cotton and cleaning shitters did not really build America
You didn't pump jack squat. Most of that money went to rural white communities. When we tal about mooching racists, it's whites like you.

You just need to recognize that black tax dollars went into programs that helped whites while excluding blacks.

Does it happen in today time?

If not then we are making progress and if it does then in detail show your evidence and let work to stop the injustice…

I don't need to "recognize" anything because personally, I don't really care. You are not my mommie, therefore you are in no position to tell me what I "need" to do.

You continue to demand, we'll continue to point and laugh.

Only the 1% was initially taxed. Not until WW II was the working man taxed

And if blacks are so poor, yadda, yadda, yadda, they can't be paying much in income tax.

But we get it, you live, eat, and breathe race.

According to taxrecords.org................

83% of American taxpayers are WHITE.
13% are Blacks.

3.6% are Asian.
and the rest is all the other races.


You lose.
Try again.
