I can see how this reperations thing might be affective without decendants getting actual dollars, but piece of mind. A legal victory indeed. Now let's see what comes of it.

This is the leak in the dam AA's have been waiting for.

"This is a very significant case," added Bruce Afran, an attorney who represented Deadria Farmer-Paellmann. "This is the first time that a reparations case has had a victory, and it will be the beginning of others. Just like the tobacco cases began with losses and slowly began gaining wind, the reparations movement will now gather steam in the courts and gain victories."

One leak at a time until the entire dam gives way under the "breach of contract" by the US Government.

I want you to look up four terms and then tell me what you think.

1. Compensatory damages
2. Exemplary damages
3. Punitive damages
4. Surviving heirs

"Attorney Roger Wareham, who represented several other plaintiffs in the case, explained that this decision means that they can now return to the District Court to address the defendants' violations of state consumer fraud statutes. Punitive damages for such corporate fraud nationwide could easily run into billions. The plaintiffs also retain the option of going to state courts to pursue claims for the disgorgement of profits.

Stay the course, do not falter and do not fail.

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

MARTIN LUTHER KING SAID, "SEND ME"

The US Government had a "service contract" with the freemen. If such and such was done by the freemen, they would receive 40 acres and a mule. This water front property was from NC to Fla. This would have facilitated black economic independence

After services were rendered, President Andrew Johnson violated the contract, gave the property to poor whites under the Homestead Act.

APRIL 1968

Martin Luther King knew the US Government can not void a "service contract" could not be voided "after" service was rendered. In April 1968, MLK was going to have a poor people's march on DC and demand "payment". A few weeks before this demonstration was to take place the USA murdered MLK.

NOT ONE AA HAVE PICKED UP THE BANNER AND DEMANDED PAYMENT FOR SERVICE RENDERED.

White people trying to be funny by asking, what are AA's asking for reparations? By law, AA's are entitled to all the water front property from NC to FLA or the "current" property value thereof.

Dumbass racists. I think we should put a few of you in a museum. People can file by while you sit in a chair sipping on an Old Milwaukee babbling on about "Negroes fried chicken har har har har..." and everyone shakes their head.

Damn, there used to be a lot of people like that? Yes, dear, once there were many such crackers but now they're only a relic... ha ha no pun intended.

As for reparations, if the money can be traced, then why the hell not? The notion of having all the non-black taxpayers fund govt reparations to blacks would have been very problematic as anyone can imagine. BUT... if the money can be traced to specific companies... GOOD it's ill-gotten gain obviously.

In case it gets lost, the condition of the "contract" was for the free men to perform a service. After service was rendered, President Andrew Johnson voided the contract and gave the land to poor whites under the Homestead Act.

If that is too complicated. A man hire you to paint his house for $5,000. After you paint the house, you ask for payment and the owner refuse to pay. To make the breach worse, the owner said he wouldn't give a N anything.

It's right there written in history. Johnson was a poor white saltine from a poor family that the upper class called "white trash".
