Anonymous - Are Reparations wrong?

Muhammad Rasheed - It may SEEM wrong for someone used to having their way—as seen from within a system that their ancestors set up to give them an unfair advantage—for their favorite victims to finally receive justice, causing that system to tip towards a socio-economic balance it had never seen before.

That is only pure, selfish, butthurt, emotional tantrum energy being expressed,not the passion of legitimate righteous outrage over a wrong. Remember, it was the wrong that was originally established with chattel slavery and an additional 150 yrs of U.S. government supported, anti-Black discriminatory practices which is then to be corrected by the Reparations payout. The definition of “reparations” is the reparatory justice for a wrong committed.

Richie Richards - Thieves never care about the opinions of their victims. They're selfish and evil.

Muhammad Rasheed - Slavery was the theft of Black labor.

Richie Richards - Slavery was the theft of labor, regardless of color. Fortunately, this country outlawed that evil practice over 150 years ago.

Muhammad Rasheed - "Regardless of color" doesn't make since considering there was only one "color" permanently delegated as the slave class.

The slave owners built in a loophole in the 13th amendment that enabled them to continue the slave labor practice legally. It's still going on today and why there is still racism against Black people and attitudes like yours towards me finally being free of that evil.

Richie Richards - It does make sense. Slave owners and slaves weren't designated by their skin color, it was an economic status. There were slaves and slave owners of all colors. Of course, the majority were black (you can thank the muslims and fellow Africans for enslaving them and selling them for cheap labor all over the world) but not all.

Can you point to an example of legal slavery protected by the 13th amendment loophole you're referring to? Aside from imprisonment (because sometimes, bad people need locked up).

Muhammad Rasheed - Richie wrote: “It does make sense.”

No, you’re just making up nonsense based on your anti-Black biases as usual.

Richie wrote: “Slave owners and slaves weren't designated by their skin color…”

Meanwhile, they were designated by their skin color by law.

Richie wrote: “…it was an economic status.”

Established by racial phenotype by law.

Richie wrote: “There were slaves and slave owners of all colors.”

There were very few Black slave owners, and even then they were under strict Black Code rules. The majority of them purchased their relatives until they could get them freed which was why they did it.

Richie wrote: “Of course, the majority were black”
The majority were Black because the system was specifically set up to permanently delegate Black people to the bondsman class to create a white racist aristocracy.

Richie wrote: “(you can thank the muslims and fellow Africans for enslaving them and selling them for cheap labor all over the world) but not all.”

That doesn’t make sense. This is a white supremacist myth.

Richie wrote: “Can you point to an example of legal slavery protected by the 13th amendment loophole you're referring to? Aside from imprisonment (because sometimes, bad people need locked up).”

Imprisonment is the loophole that they built into the 13th amendment to specifically to return the newly-freed Blacks back to slavery to force them to work those plantations again. Fraudulently throwing Black people in prison to work in prison cheap-labor camps goes on today from the same traditions.

Muhammad Rasheed - 13th Amendment: "...except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted..."

Richie Richards - Let's just ignore your revisionist history and focus on what's most relevant... today.

Unfortunately, that 13th Amendment loophole is necessary. Without it, prisons could not exist. Do you want thieves, child molesters, rapists and murderers to live among you? Of course not. That's why that clause was added. Again, some people need to be imprisoned.

Nobody is throwing blacks in prison today to make license plates. If racially-motivated legal sentencing is important to you, that's great, and a noble cause (much more respectable than racist gimme-white-people's-money crap). You should also consider supporting the Trump administration for actually passing criminal justice reforms :)

That's what white supremacists type when they don't have anything except more white supremacist nonsense. lol

Richie wrote: "...and focus on what's most relevant... today."

Literally nothing has changed in 150 yrs. You and your family are still the same racist scumbags talking the exact same political talking points that you pull out of your butts.

Richie wrote: "Unfortunately, that 13th Amendment loophole is necessary."

That's what I said. It was necessary for the white slave owners to continue slavery legally and keep their fortunes. That's literally why that clause was added -- because they were racist scumbags.

Richie wrote: "Nobody is throwing blacks in prison today to make license plates."

You saw the link I posted with the inmate grown cotton.

Richie wrote: "(much more respectable than racist gimme-white-people's-money crap)"

Oh, I'm getting my Reparations, and it'll be precisely because of all of this we're talking about. You can cry about it as you like. #WhiteTears

Richie wrote: "You should also consider supporting the Trump administration for actually passing criminal justice reforms."

??? All he did was allow one of Obama's old bills to go through that just released a handful of people as a fake political statement, and he increased the for-profit prison system market that will literally make the problem worse. Now what are you supposed to be talking about?
