Slavery was an atrocious act and a very dark time in America's history. However, modern African-Americans have no right to be offended for something they weren't alive to be offended by, and modern white people should have to pay for an act that they weren't alive to commit.
These payday-seekers completely miss the point and leave out the most significant part of America’s slavery past. We ended it!
Earlier this year we learned of the United Nation’s demand that the United States pay reparations for its history of slavery.
This laughable organization which has removed the veil and now openly flaunts its hatred of America and Israel allowed a panel of its “human rights activists” to identify slavery as the root cause of the plight of African-Americans today.
That’s right, the reason black high school dropout rates are higher than national average is because some American states allowed slavery 160 years ago.
Mireille Fanon Mendes-France, Chairwoman of the panel, spoke at press conference and drew parallels between the police killings in the USA and lynchings. “Contemporary police killings and the trauma it creates are reminiscent of the racial terror lynching’s in the past,” Mendes-France told reporters.
Last week we learned that America’s national parks are inherently racist because they’re filled with trees. Mickey Fearn, a deputy director in Obama’s National Park Service claimed black people don’t visit national parks because we associate the trees in them with slaves being lynched by their masters.
This prompted Alcee Hastings (D-Florida) to demand increased “inclusiveness” at national parks claiming, “African-Americans have felt unwelcome and even fearful in federal parklands during our nation’s history because of the horrors of lynching.”
We’re talking about TREES here.
True slavery was once legal in America, but it’s long gone. Why? The reason slavery no longer exists in our nation is the other side of the slavery story. The side Congressman Hastings et. al. don’t like to tell.
Before becoming the United States of America we were colonies of a nation ruled by a king who was earning a mint via involvement in the slave trade. His empire, influence and fortune were immense as a result of peddling human beings. His edict to the colonists was “England is a slave nation, therefore YOU will be a slave colony. Period. Like it or die.”
For that edict and others the colonists revolted and won a war. Once the English were kicked out of here some colonists –all of them WHITE—said, “No! No human being should own another. We must end this practice. It is morally wrong and we don’t want it in our nation! Period. Like it or die.”
Somewhere north of SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND white people gave their lives in a war to free black slaves. Not because they were racists, because they were moralists. They recognized the right of all men to freedom and liberty, regardless of skin color.
At the end of the day, America's black community has equality. They have all the same rights as everybody else, but they're not taking advantage of it. Instead, they're being taken advantage of by a government that's making them believe they're victims. They're complaining about how racist America is, while calling hate mongers like Michelle Obama, inspirational. That's not the fault of white people. This is the land of the free. Not the land of the handouts.
