tonight show ,from both sides
Gimme the cliffs. We ain't about to watch a 2 and half hour radio show
U can voice your opinion on the topic at hand the video was just extra...should africans kick out reparations or “the white man”...
Africans sold is out. White man ****ed us up. Hell, why not both.
Our people need to get out of the mindset that anyone owes us anything.
"Fairness" doesn't exist as it pertains to our people. The sooner our people can accept this, we can start to learn to make power moves, and be in position to ENFORCE the way our people are treated.
Which African country are they expecting to pay reparations? Does this policy apply to the black people in the Caribbean, Central and South America?
Whole convo is a waste of time and thought
I ain’t getting into this
They ain’t bout to put me against my fellow black man
Regardless what continent they on
Africa didn't do is wrong. Colonizers did. If anything the government owes the ancestors of those that were exploited. I don't see it happening ever though.
Some should understand that during the early generations of the transatlantic slave trade the word Black didnt even exist. The concept of race didnt exist. Black africans didnt consider those they sold as their people but prisoners of war.
Aint no culture that hasnt sold their own race in history. British gonna go after Nordic countries? Berbers against Arabs?
I know some brothers that have gone back and started businesses in Africa.
That's the way to go imo. Go make you're own way if you feel you have a claim to the land.
Bruh, the richest nation on earth cant afford to give reparations to their own citizens, cats waiting on poverity stricken African nations to give anything are trippin
crazy how we cant talk reparations or dont believe it will happen for african american folks
But the germans have paid the jewish people billions of dollars in reparations for the holocaust
Apples and oranges. Both tragedies but different circumstances.
The Jewish people had an entire country created for them as a refugee state, backed by the most powerful country, where they could make such reparation demands. They did this within 10 years of the war ending so I’m assuming the reparations went to actual Holocaust survivors.
The transatlantic slave trade went on for multiple generations and in this instance, the most powerful country took part and benefited from this tragedy. AA’s don’t have a superpower to support them. Also, the actual people who literally suffered from slavery are long gone. Not to mention like @AZwildcats said, what about all the black people in other countries? I’m not saying I think AA people don’t deserve reparations because the effects of slavery are still felt to this day but the two situations are different in context.
Lets do some math. There are 13 million jews worldwide. There are 45 million blacks in the US alone. Take out africans and carribean folks and you got 37 million.
Now give everyone 60k. Thats 2,220,000,000,000.
**** waiting on that.
Lemme get universal healthcare, free college, student loan forgiveness, fair loaning practices, a federal ban on redlining (still happens) etc
I would want the benefits of a level playing field.
Bruh we don’t even wanna give 9/11 first responders extra benefits.
Why can’t we just focus on funding communities and building them up to give people better opportunity to grow and prosper? Instead of gentrification forcing everyone out why not create a system that allows it to happen but everyone stays. Create programs for affordable quality education, job training, etc.
Sad but true. I know Jon Stewart is an actor of some sort but he put on a show for the congress.
and aint **** still gon happen smh
Exactly. You gotta take it in blood. Take what’s yours. Stop complaining and whining
Long gone? WTF. “The two situations are different?” Dawg, you sound like an IMBECILE.
The days are “long gone” but you’ve got CURRENT white Americans still benefiting from slavery to this day. You had the audacity to say that nonsense bruh.
You need your face spat it.
Those days are long gone, yet white people are still benefiting off of it. 100, 200+ year old US businesses are still looming off slavery.................
Cowards don’t want to see Black Americans with them big funds. Jealousy bro, smh. They’ve always been jealous, imagine us with money OUR ancestors broke their back for.....
You say that now, you’d be lining up for that 60 racks. Yeah right. How about your 60k AND healthcare, loan forgiveness, ban on redlining, etc.
You’d take them 60k in a heartbeat
You need to read and then re-read what I posted. I specifically said the two situations are different in HOW REPARATIONS were handled and THE CONTEXT BEHIND THOSE REPARATIONS . I NEVER said anything about one party deserving it and the other doesn’t. I simply outlined the differences between the two.
Again, in regards to reparation differences between Holocaust survivors and AA, I said the Jewish people had powers act on there behalf WITHIN 10 YEARS of the end of WW2 so a lot of those who DIRECTLY SUFFERED from it, were given reparations. In that situation, they had literal refugees benefiting from what happened to them.
VERSUS AA, who have not had ANY POWER act on there behalf since the “end” of slavery. I said that ACTUAL SLAVES, AS IN THE PEOPLE WHO WERE WHIPPED, TREATED INHUMANE AND FORCED TO WORK FOR PEOPLE AGAINST THEIR WILL ARE LONG GONE AKA LONG DEAD. NOT that the effects of slavery are long gone.
And I literally ****ing said in that quote you selectively read:
So again, .
Wash your face before you call anyone an imbecile.
