Anonymous - Does giving free handouts ruin character?
Muhammad Rasheed - During the 20th century, the poor whites of the United States were given numerous government free handouts in the form of money, land, education, and many other white exclusionary benefits which grew the American middle class. The black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) were pointedly left out of these programs, and in fact, the whites were allowed to grift and plunder ADOS out of what they had managed to acquire under the murderously hostile, forced jim crow segregation conditions.
Whenever the topic comes up of the long overdue Reparatory Justice and the opportunity to enable the ADOS community to also receive government handouts to grow their own middle class that is economically equal to that of their rivals, the white community unreasonably reacts in spiteful fury as if allowing ADOS to be economically equal to them is magically wrong in some way.
I am forced to conclude that a society that was restructured to coddle the entitled attitude of the so-called white peoples has actually ruined their collective character as a group and damaged their spirit. The first step in any possible redemption is for them to voluntarily pay Reparations, but it would seem that they would much rather doom their souls to hell than give up their earthly material advantage.
John Thyret - Be careful what you wish for...when you're bought off, your bought off and so is the great nobility of your ancestors. I'm dirt poor but if your drawings are reasonable, I'd buy one...and your noble spirit ancestors would smile on you.
Muhammad Rasheed - Repairing the economic damage done to my ethnic group by returning the wealth of my stolen labor isn't "buying me off." That's ridiculous.
The court system is in place so that when someone has been wronged the offending party can be held accountable. You understand that principle when it comes to literally every other scenario except the one between whites and ADOS. Why is that?
You lot enjoy just making up crazy excuses trying to squirm out of this debt. You're going to mess around and get another $10 trillion added to that ticket for your insolence.
