Supporters of reparations assume the racial wealth gap between blacks and whites is the result of slavery, and thus, something to be fixed through reparations. “If the 40-acres-and-a-mule that was promised to free slaves were delivered to the descendants of those slaves today, we would all be billionaires,” state Sen. Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) said. “I hear far too many people say, ‘Well, I didn’t own slaves, that was so long ago.’ Well, you inherit wealth — you can inherit the debt that you owe to African-Americans.”
That's the evil of equality. It can never be achieved. The demands are, therefore, never-ending.
My parents and my brother and I came to the country in 1975. We didn't inherit any wealth in the U.S. (and really none anywhere). I don't owe any debt—because of my skin color my ancestors or theirs—to blacks or whites or Asians, and neither do other Californians.
Utterly irrelevant. What matters is that you've got $$$$ and the retarded losers don't. The power-hungry leftist politicians will have no qualms about extorting money from Asians, Indians, Jews, and even rich blacks in America to appease their precious black vote. In effect, it'll be another wealth transfer from the rich to the poor. The slavery rhetoric is there to call the opponents horrible, evil, racist Nazis who hate poor black people.
