I swear, they just don’t give up. Certain Blacks seem to have latched on to the idea that at some point in their lives, they are going to get some massive reparations check in the mail for the suffering of their ancestors over 150 years ago.
The Epoch Times reports: “The United States should consider reparations to African-American descendants of slavery, establish a national human rights commission and publicly acknowledge that the trans-Atlantic slave trade was a crime against humanity, a United Nations working group said Friday.”
Barack Obama has already publicly apologized. What more do they want? Oh, yeah. Money. Lots of it.
The article notes “The U.N. Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent released its preliminary recommendations after more than a week of meetings with black Americans and others from around the country, including Baltimore, Chicago, New York City, the District of Columbia and Jackson, Mississippi.”
Somehow, the idea of asking those ghetto Negroes in Chicago and Baltimore, most solemnly, whether they felt they should receive a big huge check in the mail for nothing, is actually kind of funny.
“After finishing their fact-finding mission, the working group was ‘extremely concerned about the human rights situation of African-Americans,’ chair Mireille Fanon Mendes-France of France said in the report. ‘The colonial history, the legacy of enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the U.S. remains a serious challenge as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of African descent.’”
Blah, blah, blah. I’m sure by now we get the idea. I won’t belabor the topic too much by pointing out that the ancestors of many White people came here long after slavery was abolished and only a tiny percentage of Whites are descended from slave owners, but why spoil the group-guilt trip, they’re trying to pin on us?
I’ve just got two serious questions: First, How much “reparations” will each Negro be due? Secondly, where the hell will the money come from?
Will the Jewish Federal Reserve chairman simply click a function key on his computer and “print” it? That won’t wildly inflate the currency and cause other problems, will it?
In case no one’s noticed, Barry has just spent the last seven years completely impoverishing the bulk of the White population, allowing big corporations to outsource millions of our jobs to China and Mexico, killing off high tech jobs by downsizing NASA to a fraction and handing out over a trillion dollars per year to various welfare and food stamp related programs, which the Negroes never seem to consider as de facto reparations payments even though they have been getting them for the last 50 years. The Blacks want more, and we’re supposed to give it to them.
