John Conyers, democrat, says white Americans, you owe us reparations.
Whenever a opportunity avails itself, there are those who are anxious to enrich themselves and they will get out in front of a any agenda in the hopes of perhaps gaining notoriety and wealth for themselves no matter how absurd the adventure might appear or how frivolous, and they attempt to excite the people to action to further their objectives.
There has always been those who would jump at the chance to aggrandize themselves in some way and democrat Rep. John Conyers has proven to be just such a person.
Its not that democrat Rep. John Conyers was the first black American to try to exact reparations from the present generation of white Americans claiming that they owed blacks for slavery that existed in the long-distant past of this country, No there have been other black people who looked favorably upon the prospects of profiting from their dubious claims for reparations mainly based upon having the same color of skin as those people who were held as slaves over one hundred and fifty years ago in America.
“Only A Tiny Minority Of White Americans Ever Owned Slaves, And Others Gave Their Lives To Free Them “
“Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again”... David Horowitz
“The two great waves of American immigration occurred after 1880 and then after 1960. What rationale would require Vietnamese boat people, Russian refuseniks, Iranian refugees, and Armenian victims of the Turkish persecution, Jews, Mexicans Greeks, or Polish, Hungarian, Cambodian and Korean victims of Communism, to pay reparations to American blacks”
Booker T. Washington said this about certain people whos ambition and thirst for profit drives them to use race to excite racial strife between white and black Americans.
Booker T.Wasington said this,"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well.”
John Conyers, democrat, says, white Americans, you owe us reparations. John Conyers, maybe the White Race has a valid right for reparations too, all the white race needs is a race hustler to place their claims before Congress.

Would John Conyers settle for a mule and 40 acreas. White America will settle up as soon as the minorities settle up for their use of Public housing, free medical, free education etc they received since Roosevelt's New Deal.

For the present value of a mule and 40 acres considering the appreciation in value from 1865 to the present.

Haven't the Blacks already received reparations, David horowitz believes that they have,"Since the passage of the Civil Rights Acts and the advent of the Great Society in 1965, trillions of dollars in transfer payments have been made to African-Americans in the form of welfare benefits and racial preferences (in contracts, job placements and educational admissions)- all under the rationale of redressing historic racial grievances. It is said that reparations are necessary to achieve a healing between African-Americans and other Americans. If trillion dollar restitutions and a wholesale rewriting of American law (in order to accommodate racial preferences) for African-Americans is not enough to achieve a "healing," what will"

This has got to be one of the most bigoted things that you have said to date. As if "White America" has never received any benefits. Again, subjugating minorities to an inferior status in the U.S. and denying them the benefits of true citizenship. Relying on stereotypes rather than acknowledge their contribution to society.

By the way, I understand that you are still p.o.'d that Romney lost the election, but this is stooping to a new low.

Thank you for enlightening us on the downfall of this sister, Slavery 150 years ago, I'm sure, made her do it. I have to wonder though if this sister didn't fall under a bad influence in her life that caused her to stray from the straight and narrow...

Maybe she will get the mule and 40 acres as part of her release from prison. Then all would be right with the world.
I guess.

Because you deny truths that you don't like, they're still truths and valid.

You are attempting to muddle up the issue and deflect from the subject. Just to refresh your mind, the subject was reparation and whether reparations were owed by the present White generation to the present generation of black people who weren't connected to the slaves 150 years ago in any way except that they shared the same skin color.

"UCLA public policy professor emeritus James Q. Wilson once said, "You need only do three things to avoid poverty in this country: finish high school, marry before having a child, and produce the child after the age of 20. Only 8 percent of families who do this are poor; 79 percent of those who fail to do this are poor." Yet today's "black leaders" demand reparations, set-asides, race-based preferences, and still more welfare."

You posted,"if "White America" has never received any benefits...." You, in making this statement about Whites receiving any benefits have to also admit that blacks had received benefits from living in America.

You..." confuse equal rights with equal results -- two very different things." Larry Elder
