Because it won’t. Why would it? There is no need for it to happen. Besides, perhaps you should explain what your definition of reparations is. What exactly are you hoping for? Details please…..



As I've had to tell others on this site you really shouldn't be so one dimensional with respect to what you deem to be reparations... I for one am not advocating that Blacks sit back and just wait on a "Big ole' check" for example. Reparations for Blacks can take on many forms and can work in tandem with any other Black economic empowerment initiatives. Now regarding how do we get it... well a good place to start would be for Blacks to start realizing just how much they are owed and quit acting as if reparations is a pipe dream (or even worse something "nefarious"). Blacks need to start forming the right kind of coalitions and power bloc's necessary to effectively lobby for the things that are wanted and needed (just like any other special interest group).

In addition stop being so quick to give up the goods to those who use the Black community as a stepping stone for political expediency...make people that you help put in power BRING HOME THE BACON and address BLACK ISSUES specifically instead of all this "multi-culturism" B.S. that's being fed to Blacks. The fact of the matter is Blacks have not received any type of reparations up to this point because they have not been galvanized enough to make a concerted effort to DEMAND them... However as this economy continues to implode Blacks are going to find that they really need to be more VOCAL about their SPECIFIC needs because they can no longer get by on the crumbs being doled out to them in conjunction with other groups e.g., this whole "rising tide lifting all boats" philosophy.

I'm going to take a few days and post a little more regularly on this site just to cut down some of the falsehoods on here..because the b.s. being propagated here nowadays has reached a crescendo.
