Black people are aware that white people will NEVER pay reparations. But Most white people will continue to whine about it because most like to place blame with everything that is or has gone wrong in america ex. Crime, government subsidies, etc. They will never place any of the blame on themselves. They will continue to do as they always have, consider themselves as superior and can do no wrong in society.

Why should anyone pay reparations? That money wouldn't just come from white people, it'd come from taxpayers, whatever color they are. If there are slave owners living then, they should pay to former living slaves, otherwise, this issue is bogus. There has been slavery all throughout time, not just blacks in America. There were others in America, that were indentured, not slaves, but in a matter of speaking slaves..If you as a black person think you have it bad in the US, then you should look at your fatherland, and see the issues they have to endure. I for one think I'm lucky to not have to endure those hardships and do not wish them on anyone else. As far as blame, I never owned slaves, nor had my forefathers, and I have researched that, so its a fact....

I don't whine about it - the only time I ever think about the subject is when a black person brings it up (surprise, surprise - right?)I don't agree with reparations because all the slaves and slave owners died a long time ago. And what exactly would you give people? How would you determine who got it? Would you do geneological research? Isn't that problematic since it is so hard to trace former slaves etc. And what percentage of blood from a former slave would you have to have to receive the reparation? Would it be open to "white" people who have an ancestor who was a slave too? There is no way to make anything like this fair, or in any way satisfy a significant portion of the population (are we NOT a majority ruled country?). It would most likely hurt the country as a whole rather than "repair" anything. Time heals all wounds, not money. How about an official apology?

Also, if the gov't is going to start handing out "reparations" to black people, every other ethnic group is going to want in on the action too. Where would it end?

I never cared much for whine. I'm strictly a scotch drinker or prefer Chevis Regal when I can find it.

Tall glaas, on the rocks, throw in some 7up or Sprite, add a lemon or lime twist, then stir briskly.

We already pay reparations, it is called welfare.

Well blacks living today have been affected by slavery. Whites have inherited money from their families and when their kids get married they are able to purchase a house or even pay for schooling for their kids. White Americans are so far ahead of blacks today it's crazy. You should give more thought to the situation rather than seeing it for what it seems. Blacks had to start all over from dirt, and some were able to overcome, and still their are many still in the dirt waiting for a hand

Why shouldn't we give them reparations?
We have given them everything else from welfare to every government program you can think of. But shame on the white man, we have created this pitiful, uneducated, unproductive culture. We have created multiple generations of a crippled culture that does not know how to be productive and prosper.

reparations my big ol' bootay, my white indentured servant ancestors were in the fields working WITH the slaves, not bossing them from the plantations.
just because you are a white southerner doesn't mean that you are descended from slave owners.

Glenlivet Limousine Aged in French Limousine oak barrels. 18 years old. Smooth as a polished marble floor. That is the finest scotch I can afford once a year or so.
My rich brother keeps a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue in his cabinet. Unbelievable! Never would pollute this stuff with any thing but a distilled water ice cube.

What are reparations anyway? Will it help me afford better Scotch?
I'd vote for that!

If a person does not know how to be a success in the land of the free, giving he/she cash in any amount will only make them and their offspring more dependant into eternity. Which generation should be the last to receive a check?

Shouldn't a percentage of these reparations come from those that sold their ancestors into slavery in the first place?

less than 1% of Americans ever owned a single slave. hardly any great wealth to leave behind for almost no one. whites are so far ahead. that is truth. it is the cream rising to the top. evolution at it's finest. you lag not because of racism but because of nature. why are black around the world always standing around waiting for a hand? whites don't beg, asians don't beg, they get out and work and achieve as you ought to try.
