Quoted from the article, these are things that Republicans are suing Democrats for: It's pretty pathetic that this is the best that black conservatives can do. The fact is that above and beyond any party affiliations, it is conservative ideology that was behind everything listed above. What does that say about conservatives that they are attacking Democrats because of their previous conservative positions?

People still use all of these terms in many places around the country, though never to my face unless they're trying to get reaquainted with the sidewalk. If memory serves me correctly, the original meaning of the word mulatto was mule. One of the many reasons why I don't use it. For myself, I prefer bi-racial or mixed. Or, for the less discriminating, Black will suffice.

I say forget 40 acres and a mule.. we should all get free lifetime therapy! It's much more useful.... For real, I used to be a skeptic about its effectiveness but, having been to therapy myself, it really can be a life saver. And it enhances the quality of your life... Though it is crucial to find a good therapist.

A Long History of Affirmative Action - For Whites Many middle-class white people, especially those of us from the suburbs, like to think that we got to where we are today by virtue of our merit - hard work, intelligence, pluck, and maybe a little luck. And while we may be sympathetic to the plight of others, we close down when we hear the words "affirmative action" or "racial preferences." We worked hard, we made it on our own, the thinking goes, why don't 'they'? After all, the Civil Rights...

Neither one of those are like reparations. Welfare is part of a social safety net that everyone has access to. AA is to ensure past discrimination does not continue, and again includes others (white women) . Why do you equate either of those with reparations? Uhhh, that is similar to what is being proposed; although other aggrieved groups have gotten a check in their hand.

Fine, I agree with you. For the longest time I've thought we should forget 40 acres and a mule and get life-time therapy instead! Therapy is much more useful these days than a mule. But I also think that as a part of the healing process that we need * new ways of talking to each other * and for this reason we need to explore and understand the old ways. What do you think?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but, the way I understand the word is that it insinuates that people are of separate species; for when a horse and donkey mate the result is a mule, a sterile hybrid that can't reproduce. It was believed that when blacks and white procreated, the result--a mulatto child--would not be able to reproduce, and thus this new breed would die off. So yeah, I don't see why using the word is a good thing either. btw, there's a "molecular anthropology and genetics" forum over...

Sherman's Special Field Order No. 15, the one about "forty acres and a mule," and which is quoted often among us, did two things: 1. It established reservations for blacks in South Carolina and Florida (was there one other place? I don't remember that. Could have been, though). 2.

2 1/2 acres?? Hell, Deed Books in Maryland, for example, show how indentured servants received 50 acres as "freedom dues." The amount of land may have varied for colony to colony but it was always more than 2.5 and even the famed 40 acres and a mule (indentured servants supposed received farming tools and a gun) pales in comparison to the 160 acre tracts of land virtually given away to Whites in the 1862 Homestead Act. http://www.pricegen.com/resources/servants.htm ...
