I should rename this forum the Shithouse for those libs full of white liberal guilt.
So all you had to do was look black and suddenly you're a descendant of a former slave?


In Portland, Ore., organizers of the “Reparations Happy Hour” invited black, brown and indigenous people to a bar and handed them $10 bills as they arrived, a small but symbolic gift mostly funded by white people who were asked not to attend.

Brown Hope, a local activist organization, wanted the event, which was held on Monday, to be a space for people of color in a mostly white city to meet one another, discuss policy issues and plan potential action.

While it was far from the full-scale reparations sought by some as penance for the horrors of slavery and continuing racial injustice, Cameron Whitten, the 27-year-old activist who organized the event, said there was one similarity: It made attendees feel as if their pain were valued and understood.

“It was only $10, but when I saw them I saw their eyes light up,” he said. “What I saw there was that people felt like they were finally seen.”

So has any of them been part of slavery other then by themselves, the Dem party or the government?

Yep. I've found that in nature, everything has a purpose, be it a fly, mosquito or even the common cold, they all play a part in the cycle of life and strengthing and perpetuation of life, with the exception, the liberal idiot.
They play no function in the prolongation or strengthing life, they are the cancer of all cancers.

Liberals want things to be perfect ---- as long as it is with someone else's resources.

So if you were a child of mixed parentage, half white and half black, would you only get $5.  :confused: :lol:
