What's soooooooo abstract about it? I personally know a lot folks with that SLAVE mentality that could use a couple of dollars. And I know a few who hold that MASSA mentality who need to learn how to be charitable with the nasty dynasty passed down by their slaveowner forefathers. Maybe if they did that, the harshness of slavery and its ramifications will be just as real as the World World Two and holocaust stories that are beat to death on television and the movies. And oh…when they are on the Nazi hunt and find a soldier…he is soooo old and it seems useless to persecute…but! They still do it cuz it's important to do….just as reparation is just as important to blackfolks to do so. Don't you get it? It's NOT about the money as much as it is about the MESSAGE.

black slaves were like commodities and chattel that had established value.


Warning: This is a LONNNNG response...cuz it piss me off to hear this:


Oh so once blacks were established as people and not commodities/chattle we were no longer valuable? And the British were cuz once our title transferred from being "stocks" to "humans" ….it was the British who lost something? And that's far more important to pay them for destroying the lives of human beings than it was to give these human beings not only back their lives but a legitimate way to have a future cuz that takes money/land/stock. Right? So let me see if I'm getting this straight, the only ones who should can get paid for the woes of slavery is massa? Is that what you're saying? And ummmm just cuz there are no slaves alive today[.their offsprings/descendants don't count] there shouldn't be reparations for the inhumane[sp] cruelty done. Cuz that was the past. Right? And all is fair after slavery. Cuz at least they let them free. Right? And we should just get over it. Right?

So if you know your history.....you know that blacks were not treated fairly after slavery either. They were mistreated during the reconstruction, post reconstruction, segegration and during jim crow. And those who preferred not to sharecrop received absolutely nothing....even though they had their so-called freedom and worked many years prior to that FREE. But massa on the other hand was still able to enjoy his benefits as slaveowner. So again. Tell me my brotha why is it unreasonable for the descendants to receive compensation i.e. land/money/stock....even though their ancestors built one of the most richest country in the world? Can you answer me that with a straight face? Knowing their journey in that many couldn't feed their families and most had to migrate out of the south to the mid west (twice) where they were meet with the horror of KKK-caught and hung from trees, hunted down and castrated-their women raped and bodies swung over bridges along with their children. Alladat and still you say the descendents of slaves and former slaves should not receive any compensation from the cruelty of America?

I'm really having trouble digesting your spin my brotha when you say the actual slaves have to BE alive to receive any benefits. Does that ANY make sense? If so, you have to say that about inheritance too. Meaning: when a person dies he/she can not leave anything to the folks left behind in the future i.e.including unborn heirs. If that's the case, family dynasties would not have been able to pass things to down to potential grandchildren. Doesn't make sense..does it? But what it does make it is straight out racism! Cuz why?

Look at Japan. They treated their women poorly in their own country during the war and although America placed the Japanese people in concentration camps, when it was over the Japanese people affected was compensated. It wasn't an issue that they had to be alive cuz many offsprings received funding on behalf of their parents and family members cuz several had DIED during and after being in the camp. So. Why do their families get to have money for being mistreated by America....but! The descendants of Blackfolks don't. Those in the concentration camps didn't do FREE labor for 400 years. They were just placed in area for a certain amount of time. They didn't have to do any work for the government. And let's not talk about the Jews. Black soldiers were overseas fighting for their freedom too. But as soon as these Black soldiers returned, they were mistreated not only by Americans but by some Jews. In fact many Jewish merchants established stores in black neighborhoods and charged Blackfolks 100 percent more for items that were only 2 percent in cost. That sho is a good way to say thank you to the families of Black soldiers who probably died freeing their Jewish counterparts out of Nazi camps. Now is it? So what is the message here, my brotha?

Although the Japanese(except for the railroad...…but they got paid) and The Jews[original Gang bangers] did absolutely NOTHING to contribute to this country…they STILL felt they were/are somehow BETTER than black folks. Cuz why? America paid one group for mistreatment...and went to war to save the other group from genocideRoll Eyesbut! Black people who were stolen and forced into free labor...…gets nothing? Is this fair? Again what is the real message? Where folks all over the world can come to America and make a living...and can treat Blacks as subhumans...cuz the word they heard was:. Blacks were rescued/saved from Africa. Blacks are really man-monkeys with tails that grow at night. So you can come here and treat them anyway you like. That's why Asians from other parts of Asia can come to this country, set up shop in our community and without fear kill a 14 year old black girl over a bottle of 89 cents orange juice. Cuz remember you said that once Blacks became humans and not chattle or commodities....we were NO longer valuable. Wow! Question: How can you sleep at night with this sick mindset? Especially knowing blackfolks died for your ungrateful azz to get the education I assume you received, to live in the house you live in without crossing burnings.....even to go about your daily life unharmed[well almost as long as you stay away from the Po Po....that is if you're black]Roll Eyes God!!!? What is we gon' do? Massa goin around wearin' a black mask pretendin to be us!!! Roll Eyes Like we stupid or sumthinEek

BTW: Your white was showing.....many many posts ago...but!
