Democrats running for president have found a new leftist hobbyhorse to ride on their pandering journey: reparations for slavery.
Reparation for slavery have been paid for over a century and a half now: in blood. Hundreds of thousands of WHITE US citizens died both defending and destroying slavery: and after years of carnage and struggle and an unfathomable loss of wealth, property and life slavery was eradicated.
It remains the deadliest war in American history. From 1861 to 1865, it is estimated that 620,000 to 750,000 soldiers died, along with an undetermined number of civilians.
That’s payment enough. The people who paid it were (mostly) the same people who created, continued and tolerated the infernal institution, exactly the people who should have.
Very few of those people’s descendents are even around. Most Americans, black and white, have absolutely no connexion with slavery at all. It’s ludicrous to claim anything is owed to people generations removed from slavery by people who have no connexion to slavery whatsoever. Further, black, Arabic and Hispanic people bear the greatest blame that the institution of black slavery ever started in the first place.
Whites didn’t go into the jungles of Africa and capture tribesmen: other black tribes and Arabs did. Whites merely purchased the captives and transported them around the world (actually, to their immense benefit, in the long run).
Witness that very few American blacks wish to return to Africa, a hellhole of a continent made hellish by their black and Arab populations. The only states where blacks had a decent standard of living were those run by whites, the late S. Africa and Rhodesia, now completely taken over by blacks and completely corrupted into standard Africa hell-holes. American blacks should pay reparations for the fact they were delivered from that devastation, disease, ignorance, mutilation, murder and mayhem. There’s not a stable state on the continent, nor a functional government that is without tyranny, brutality and genocidal tendencies.
I propose one type of reparation only: a free one-way ticket to Africa, redeemable when you renounce your US citizenship and right of return to America and consent to live in the land of your benighted ancestors, forever, and your descendents as well. Make a country like Liberia (founded by ex-slaves!) or Nigeria (oil-rich!) into the racial paradise you seek. Find out how idyllic, non-bigoted, non-discriminatory and peaceful countries with almost 100% black populations can be with no white man to oppress you, no white privilege, no microagressions!
