In all the post topics, the persons calling themself nmaginate, and the Chester person do a good cop/bad cop routine, and with the present political climate, it makes me wonder if they and this site are a C.I.A. front to stir the pot of confusion and idiocy. I know AfricanAmerican.com is a C.I.A. sponsored site, and I know from my prior experiences with persons mentioned, they serve to do no more than fuel an already blazing inferno of discord and dissension, denying the linear chronology of fact facts, and historical facts, and laws relative to same.
Before getting to the topic of reperations, it behooves all to know not every one writing here is American born, and it's a well, and long documented fact Afrimericans are the least educated on matters outside the realm of their individual day to day existence, and what is gleaned from gossip, innuendo, the street corner, T.V., and from pseudo-intellctuals who speak to sound good, but in the long run have said nothing of catalystic value.
The Question of who pays reperations has stagnated and will bond to defeatt because the scope of reperation per Afrimericans is limited to what Afrimericans see as owed, but the powers that be, the layer upon layer of government agencies, combined with the all the fortune 500 and fortune 1000 corporations see the matter on a global scale, because Africans were stolen for hundreds of years, killed for hundreds of years, whole tribes, and 100's of tribal histories were wiped out, obliterated, and all non-African, non-Asian countries are guilty of participating in that holocaustic action, the very real killing of hundreds of millions Africans. Afterwhich, these same countries went and partitioned Africa, each taking what they wanted, thus when it is added up, the cost, dollar wise, is astronomical, and to pay a tenth of it would give African, and people of African descent from the last thousand years an instant financial equality to financially challenge the starnglehold already locked in place, and they are not going to allow that, or surrender to that; Not only because of the monetary cost, butalso because of the moral cost, the moral cost of their own moral conviction the degenerate nature of their own moral integrity. They have to keep the facade that everything they've done, and still do is good.
The only viable means for Afrimericans to get reperations is one, become a nation within a nation, and to petition the U.S. Government for sovereignity as was done with the American Indian tribes.
I'm sure the persons mentioned earlier will argue against what I've written with innuendo and conjecture, and quotes they find from reputable white source, even it has a Black face, Afrimericans(some) are in academic slavery repeating the same misinformation given by whites, and while I am not a name celebrity, and don't want to be, if I can talk to white house staff and have this and other dialogs, I must have credence, and more than a fair idea of what I say, so before the attackers go on the attack. Think.
