Whether it was colonial government or the current republic we have now, the government has provided whites with more than it has ever given to anyone else. This was not because people of color did not take the opportunity because most of these things EXCLUDED non white participation. The handouts/privilege started with this:

In 1618, the Virginia colony passed "the Great Charter of privileges, orders, and laws." Among these laws was a provision that any person who settled in Virginia or paid for the transportation of another person to settle in Virginia would get fifty acres of land per person. “The right to receive fifty acres per person, or per head, was called a headright.” It got even better for colonists as those who “imported” slaves also got fifty acres per slave. The practice was continued by the government of Virginia, for 161 years, ending in 1779. Headrights were not only limited to Virginia. The headright system was used in all the original thirteen colonies. Headrights were the first of many government handouts of free stuff or guarantees providing whites with economic development assistance.

It continued with this:

The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. It says: “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other Persons.”

And with this:

The Naturalization Act of 1790 states: “any alien, being a free white person,” could apply for citizenship, so long as they lived in the United States for at least two years and in the state where the application was filed for at least one year. This law allowed “children of citizens of the United States that may be born … out of the limits of the United States shall be considered as natural-born citizens.” Please notice the first seven words. Only whites were entitled to be citizens of this country.

And with this:

One of the greatest miscarriages of justice in this nation’s history was a direct rebuttal to the claim that all men are created equal called Dred Scott v. Sandford. I am not going into all the particulars of this case. The court’s opinion says all you need to know. “A black man has no rights a white man is bound to respect.” The result of Dred Scott v. Sandford was that whites were given rights and status blacks were denied.Or- Affirmative Action.

And with this:

Passed in 1862, the Homestead Acts gave away 246 million acres of land. To qualify for Homestead land, a person had to be a citizen of the United States, and blacks were not given citizenship until 1866.

And this:

On April 16, 1895, the United States Supreme Court rendered another one of the sorriest decisions in American history. It is known as Plessy vs. Ferguson. From this decision came the principle of separate but equal.

And this:

The National Housing Act was passed by Congress and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934.29 This law created the Federal Housing Administration or the FHA. The National Housing Act is the policy that may have had the most impact on wealth accumulation in modern America.

Between 1934 and 1968, the FHA implemented and put into practice a policy that still negatively impacts communities today.30 The FHA Underwriting Manual set the guidelines real estate agents used to assess home values in American neighborhoods. This manual promoted racist real estate practices. It was done by defending racially restrictive covenants and segregated communities. Due to this manual, the FHA established a neighborhood grading system based purely on false racist perceptions.

Redlining was the name of that grading system. My point here is the FHA was a government agency whose policies specifically provided whites with opportunities to increase wealth through homeownership. The formation of the FHA and its guaranteed loan program only worked to increase white advantage.
“Of the $120 billion worth of new housing subsidized by the government between 1934 and 1962, less than 2 percent went to nonwhite families.”

And this:

The Social Security Act of 1935 created the Social Security program, state unemployment insurance, and assistance to single women with children.Today, most Americans love the program. However, when the act was signed, the law excluded occupations mainly done by blacks. When President Roosevelt signed the law, approximately two-thirds of the blacks in America were ineligible. For years, most blacks were excluded from social security savings and could not get unemployment.

And this:

Title 4 or IV of the social security act of 1935 provided grants to states as Aid To Dependent Children. Eventually the name of the program was changed to Aid to Families with Dependent Children. This was welfare, folks. Assistance for single moms with children and no daddy at home. In 1935. Blacks were excluded.

And this:

The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 created the minimum wage and time and a half overtime pay for working over forty hours a week. Child labor was eliminated by this act. All these were good things, but… In every law that was passed as part of The New Deal, Roosevelt had to compromise with southern representatives to get the votes he needed. In the case of the FLSA, due to pressure from southern congress members, he decided that industries would be excluded from the regulations where the majority of workers were black. Because of this, blacks were paid less than the minimum wage.

And this:

On June 22, 1944, President Roosevelt signed the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act, better known as the G.I. Bill.38 This law provided benefits for veterans returning from World War Two. This act included funds for college tuition, low-cost home loans, and unemployment insurance. As in every other program during this time, southern members of Congress fought the passage of these laws unless there were provisions that limited access to blacks.

Over one million returning black soldiers were unable to get GI benefits. My father was one of those soldiers.

And today white women are the number one beneficiary of affirmative action. So when you're white trying to diss blacks with affirmative action, look in the mirror and you will see the image of the people who have benefitted the most from what you say Affirmative Action is. When you start ranting about government handouts and dependence look in the mirror again. The dependence on government by whites is why we see the complaining due to the fact that others are getting what some whites think they are entitled to. After all, when you bitch about imaginary quotas that if they were real, would give whites 70 percent of the jobs, admissions, government contracts and promotions, the only reason that you are bitching is because you believe you are entitled to everything.

Headrights were the first of many government handouts of free stuff or guarantees providing whites with economic development assistance.

Um, okay, you realize that a large number of these colonists died from starvation or being killed by Natives, right? Yes, sign right up for this system where you might be killed!

So all your incessant whining, the most recent thing you could find was 1944? You know, before most of anyone here was born?

One of the greatest miscarriages of justice in this nation’s history was a direct rebuttal to the claim that all men are created equal called Dred Scott v. Sandford. I am not going into all the particulars of this case. The court’s opinion says all you need to know. “A black man has no rights a white man is bound to respect.” The result of Dred Scott v. Sandford was that whites were given rights and status blacks were denied.Or- Affirmative Action.

And within a decade, hundreds of thousands of whites gave up their lives fighting to free blacks.

Passed in 1862, the Homestead Acts gave away 246 million acres of land. To qualify for Homestead land, a person had to be a citizen of the United States, and blacks were not given citizenship until 1866.

So you were excluded for 4 years from a program that was specifically set up to encourage poor white city dwellers to fight a war to free blacks. Got it.

And today white women are the number one beneficiary of affirmative action. So when you're white trying to diss blacks with affirmative action, look in the mirror and you will see the image of the people who have benefitted the most from what you say Affirmative Action is. When you start ranting about government handouts and dependence look in the mirror again. The dependence on government by whites is why we see the complaining due to the fact that others are getting what some whites think they are entitled to. After all, when you bitch about imaginary quotas that if they were real, would give whites 70 percent of the jobs, admissions, government contracts and promotions, the only reason that you are bitching is because you believe you are entitled to everything.

Okay, but here's the thing. White women don't need affirmative action at this point. Probably haven't needed it for years. If you get rid of Affirmative Action, white women would be fine with it, Asians would be fine with it, Hispanics would probably be fine with it.


Sounds like a good reason to get rid of affirmative action. Then no one would ever wonder if you deserved a job again.

The practice was continued by the government of Virginia, for 161 years, ending in 1779.

And I appreciate the head right practice......That's exactly how my ancestors first settled Fort Valley, Virginia.

In fact I still own 50 acres there that were part of that grant. They did that to promote/encourage settlement of the wilderness areas of the time.

LOL....I bet you are thinking that the grant was for cleared land but it wasn't, it was cleared/farmed by the sweat of those that received it.

It pretty amazing when you consider that nearly every cleared piece of land you see there today was covered by first growth timber and cleared by hand......White hands. There is no record of slaves in the Fort till after the Revolution and very few at that.

There are still quite a few original 50 acre tracts there on the ridges though most have been sold to the US .gov to add to the George Washington National Forest.....If you have land that abuts the NF you can sell it to them. They pay very well for it too. That's likely what I'll do with my 50 acres once I get around to having the timber cut off of it.

“Of the $120 billion worth of new housing subsidized by the government between 1934 and 1962, less than 2 percent went to nonwhite families.”

And this:

The Social Security Act of 1935 created the Social Security program, state unemployment insurance, and assistance to single women with children.Today, most Americans love the program. However, when the act was signed, the law excluded occupations mainly done by blacks. When President Roosevelt signed the law, approximately two-thirds of the blacks in America were ineligible. For years, most blacks were excluded from social security savings and could not get unemployment.

And this:

Title 4 or IV of the social security act of 1935 provided grants to states as Aid To Dependent Children. Eventually the name of the program was changed to Aid to Families with Dependent Children. This was welfare, folks. Assistance for single moms with children and no daddy at home. In 1935. Blacks were excluded.

And this:

The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 created the minimum wage and time and a half overtime pay for working over forty hours a week. Child labor was eliminated by this act. All these were good things, but… In every law that was passed as part of The New Deal, Roosevelt had to compromise with southern representatives to get the votes he needed. In the case of the FLSA, due to pressure from southern congress members, he decided that industries would be excluded from the regulations where the majority of workers were black. Because of this, blacks were paid less than the minimum wage.

And this:

On June 22, 1944, President Roosevelt signed the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act, better known as the G.I. Bill.38 This law provided benefits for veterans returning from World War Two. This act included funds for college tuition, low-cost home loans, and unemployment insurance. As in every other program during this time, southern members of Congress fought the passage of these laws unless there were provisions that limited access to blacks.

Over one million returning black soldiers were unable to get GI benefits. My father was one of those soldiers.

And today white women are the number one beneficiary of affirmative action. So when you're white trying to diss blacks with affirmative action, look in the mirror and you will see the image of the people who have benefitted the most from what you say Affirmative Action is. When you start ranting about government handouts and dependence look in the mirror again. The dependence on government by whites is why we see the complaining due to the fact that others are getting what some whites think they are entitled to. After all, when you bitch about imaginary quotas that if they were real, would give whites 70 percent of the jobs, admissions, government contracts and promotions, the only reason that you are bitching is because you believe you are entitled to everything.
On God's green earth I cannot figure out how Japan, South Korea and now China became major players in this world economically from hitting bottom. Japan from after WW 2. South Korea from the 1960's, and China from the 1970's. This happening while in the United States, endless resources have been spent to uplift people over the same decades and endless reductions to standards of ethics and morality have been standardized to correct the wrongs of the past. And I tell you again...stop teenage girls from having babies with the baby daddy nowhere around. And collapse the teacher's union with tougher love in school education. The resources will dry up at some point. Sooner rather than later.

In 1618, the Virginia colony passed "the Great Charter of privileges, orders, and laws." Among these laws was a provision that any person who settled in Virginia or paid for the transportation of another person to settle in Virginia would get fifty acres of land per person. “The right to receive fifty acres per person, or per head, was called a headright.” It got even better for colonists as those who “imported” slaves also got fifty acres per slave. The practice was continued by the government of Virginia, for 161 years, ending in 1779.

And I appreciate the head right practice......That's exactly how my ancestors first settled Fort Valley, Virginia.

In fact I still own 50 acres there that were part of that grant. They did that to promote/encourage settlement of the wilderness areas of the time.

LOL....I bet you are thinking that the grant was for cleared land but it wasn't, it was cleared/farmed by the sweat of those that received it.

It pretty amazing when you consider that nearly every cleared piece of land you see there today was covered by first growth timber and cleared by hand......White hands. There is no record of slaves in the Fort till after the Revolution and very few at that.

There are still quite a few original 50 acre tracts there on the ridges though most have been sold to the US .gov to add to the George Washington National Forest.....If you have land that abuts the NF you can sell it to them. They pay very well for it too. That's likely what I'll do with my 50 acres once I get around to having the timber cut off of it.
IM2 clings to the fantasy that whites were given prime farm land ready to plant. It wasn’t, in all cases it was virgin wilderness that needed years of work to turn into farm land. On the east coast it was covered by dense hardwood forests and on the Great Plains which is what he usually complains about, it was prairie that laughed at horse-drawn plows and lacked water. Even today those plots are only productive because of deep tube wells and artificial irrigation. Oh and in both areas the land was inhabited by hostile natives who were more than happy to kill, torture and rape the invaders.

Whether it was colonial government or the current republic we have now, the government has provided whites with more than it has ever given to anyone else.

This is your problem, man.

You seem to think the role of government is to provide for you.

Instead of encouraging others to adopt a group victim mentality in order to placate that foolish notion, you should strive to gain a sense of yourself as an Individual. This will ultimately guide you toward a sense of Individual responsibility.

I would add that the federal government has nothing. It has nothing because it does not produce anything. What it does is steal from those who do produce, at the barrel of a government gun, and redistribute it to its own special interests.

In that regard, government is the most biased entity on the planet.

But that's not what you're pouting about. Right?

You just want what you feel is your share of the steal. Right?

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs," I think it was?

Dividing Individuals into groups and encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, to view Individuals only as members of groups, thereby perpetuating racism in the name of collectivism, is the most convenient means of achieving this, in your view?

It’s 2022
Yeah and the constitution was ratified in 1787. That tired ass dodge died long ago. The things I mention are why whites have what they do now. 93 million whites live on homestead land right now and millions more gained wealth because of government back loans that helped whites purchase suburban homes. So it's time face the truth. After all it's the same 2022 when you republicans talk about what the democrats did during slavery.

Yeah?
Who won....
The indians like the blacks were inferior so to fucken bad for them.
Blacks in the U.S. should be down on their knees and thanking God their ancestors were brought to America.
If they hadn't been blacks would still be living in mud huts and plucking termites out of a mound with sticks for lunch.

Whether it was colonial government or the current republic we have now, the government has provided whites with more than it has ever given to anyone else. This was not because people of color did not take the opportunity because most of these things EXCLUDED non white participation. The handouts/privilege started with this:

In 1618, the Virginia colony passed "the Great Charter of privileges, orders, and laws." Among these laws was a provision that any person who settled in Virginia or paid for the transportation of another person to settle in Virginia would get fifty acres of land per person. “The right to receive fifty acres per person, or per head, was called a headright.” It got even better for colonists as those who “imported” slaves also got fifty acres per slave. The practice was continued by the government of Virginia, for 161 years, ending in 1779. Headrights were not only limited to Virginia. The headright system was used in all the original thirteen colonies. Headrights were the first of many government handouts of free stuff or guarantees providing whites with economic development assistance.

It continued with this:

The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. It says: “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other Persons.”

And with this:

The Naturalization Act of 1790 states: “any alien, being a free white person,” could apply for citizenship, so long as they lived in the United States for at least two years and in the state where the application was filed for at least one year. This law allowed “children of citizens of the United States that may be born … out of the limits of the United States shall be considered as natural-born citizens.” Please notice the first seven words. Only whites were entitled to be citizens of this country.

And with this:

One of the greatest miscarriages of justice in this nation’s history was a direct rebuttal to the claim that all men are created equal called Dred Scott v. Sandford. I am not going into all the particulars of this case. The court’s opinion says all you need to know. “A black man has no rights a white man is bound to respect.” The result of Dred Scott v. Sandford was that whites were given rights and status blacks were denied.Or- Affirmative Action.

And with this:

Passed in 1862, the Homestead Acts gave away 246 million acres of land. To qualify for Homestead land, a person had to be a citizen of the United States, and blacks were not given citizenship until 1866.

And this:

On April 16, 1895, the United States Supreme Court rendered another one of the sorriest decisions in American history. It is known as Plessy vs. Ferguson. From this decision came the principle of separate but equal.

And this:

The National Housing Act was passed by Congress and signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934.29 This law created the Federal Housing Administration or the FHA. The National Housing Act is the policy that may have had the most impact on wealth accumulation in modern America.

Between 1934 and 1968, the FHA implemented and put into practice a policy that still negatively impacts communities today.30 The FHA Underwriting Manual set the guidelines real estate agents used to assess home values in American neighborhoods. This manual promoted racist real estate practices. It was done by defending racially restrictive covenants and segregated communities. Due to this manual, the FHA established a neighborhood grading system based purely on false racist perceptions.

Redlining was the name of that grading system. My point here is the FHA was a government agency whose policies specifically provided whites with opportunities to increase wealth through homeownership. The formation of the FHA and its guaranteed loan program only worked to increase white advantage.
“Of the $120 billion worth of new housing subsidized by the government between 1934 and 1962, less than 2 percent went to nonwhite families.”

And this:

The Social Security Act of 1935 created the Social Security program, state unemployment insurance, and assistance to single women with children.Today, most Americans love the program. However, when the act was signed, the law excluded occupations mainly done by blacks. When President Roosevelt signed the law, approximately two-thirds of the blacks in America were ineligible.

This was welfare, folks. Assistance for single moms with children and no daddy at home. In 1935. Blacks were excluded.

After all, when you bitch about imaginary quotas that if they were real, would give whites 70 percent of the jobs, admissions, government contracts and promotions, the only reason that you are bitching is because you believe you are entitled to everything.

You don't have any idea at all as to what this was about.

The Three-Fifths Compromise is found in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. It says: “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three-fifths of all other Persons.”

Face the truth Joe.

Uh, guy, sorry, man, if you are going to blame every failure you have on someone else, then you will always fail.

Success is realizing there are ALWAYS going to be obstacles, life is RARELY fair, and the key to getting by is getting up one more time than they knock you down.

But if you are going to whine, "Boo-hoo, my Dad didn't qualify for the GI Bill" 70 years ago, I'm not going to get terribly worked up.

You want to talk to me about pragmatic solutions, I'm with you 100%.

Affirmative Action- Might be needed, but has to be done a lot smarter.

Police Reform - Definitely needed, but not to the point where you've demonized law enforcement to the point were no one wants to sign up for it.

Invasion has its consequences.

So what are you guys whining about, then?
