    reparations would be a bad idea because there are no slaves anymore. some white people hundreds of years ago had slaves, and now white people today have to pay black people who weren`t slaves? really?

    Older relatives` financial status has a large impact on the chances of your current financial status/difficulty to obtain a certain level of financial status.

    When one person is poor, they have trouble supplying a lot of benefits for their children, who then in turn have trouble with their children, etc.

    Although there are many, many cases where people turn out fine due to their parents` wealth, the CHANCES for a person with a poor great great grandmother to obtain a high amount of money is lower than the people who descend from rich white landowners. How easily you lead yourself into money is determined a lot by your parents` wealth, and looking only at a direct connection instead of a general trend caused by years of economical and social racism is a foolishly myopic mistake.

    That would make sense if you were arguing:

    i) All descendents of rich white landowners should be forced to give money to everyone else

    or

    ii) Everyone who is rich should be forced to give money to everyone else.

    But you aren`t arguing either. You`re using a purely racial criterion and trying to disguise it as something else, which makes you dishonest as well as racist.

    USA should pay reparations to the UK too, for the seizure of UK property by force on a huge scale (American revolution). Even those people whose ancestors weren`t even in America at the time, as that obviously doesn`t matter with reparations.

    How far can I go back? Obviously I get money from Germany for WW2, but can I get extra for the German invasion of Britain in the 5th century? How about from France for the French invasion in the 11th century? From Italy for the Roman invasion in the first century? Who pays me for all my ancestors who were serfs? Not as bad as slavery, but still legally property of someone else. Plus slavery - I could probably find some ancestors who were slaves, most Britons can.

    VV You being British would then owe the Irish a fortune.

    True, but there would have to be a rebate for the attempted Irish invasion of southern Britain, the successful Irish invasion of northern Britain, the endless piratical raids through the centuries (though those went both ways) and, most of all, the terrorism.

    Maybe we could dump most of the payment on the Netherlands, as the worst of the offenders was Dutch, not British (William of Orange).

    Short summary for those who don`t know - an English civil war was fought in Ireland and the winner spent decades brutally screwing the Irish over partly for supporting the loser and mostly for following a different version of the same religion. That religious and political division has blighted the country ever since.

    Although I think the most reprehensible thing was the utter inadequacy of relief measures during the famine, when Ireland was part of the UK.

    From what i`ve learned slavery was quite different back then as compared to the slavery discussed here where the African salves were seen as less human than Caucasian "civilized" people and therefore were right to own and treat however you pleased. Also I read somewhere that in some cases slaves in the US were better off than some of the free people up north (at least economically). And on another interesting note the US only stood for a fairly small part of all slaves brought out from the slaving colonies, so i don`t understand why they always take all the flack.

    Then again, who gives a crap? I think it`s time for black people all over to let go of these past events, no matter how cruel they were. I mean giving some tard reparati

    I love when people try to play the ancestry card on me.

    Usually I point out that we`re in Pennsylvania and that more than likely my ancestors helped their ancestors, if anything. Then I usually point out how that probably isn`t likely, seeing how I`m mostly Syrian and Italian, and then go all True Romance on them and explain how their people pillaged and raped my people, years and years ago (not actually true, I know). So that not only do they probably OWE me something, but deep down I`m one of them.

    My people were sent to this nation as slaves and were expected to work until they paid their debt off to a company that had bought them, split up their famalies and shipped them across the atlantic ocean. Mind you my people are scots irish and eventually had the chance to buy themselves out of share cropping but that wasnt until the 1930s. Course I think I`m darker than this girl but hey, let me just fish my check book out and piss away part of my daughter`s future because somone from her bloodline came from africa.

    A lot of, and I use this term lightly since a lot of black people are no longer from Africa but, "African Americans" (also, why do you call them Americans, are all black people from the Americas?) still do live in those situations.
    So RAGEMONSTER your argument is a moot point.

    I also do not denote the use of slavery but would it have killed them to hire the people? I ask because I really don`t know, would it have harmed where we are today if the slave owners hired them?

    Salted Eggs. No country has been able to get off the ground without someone suffering. We did it to Africans, The Brittons did it to everyone, and so on and so forth. If we had paid the slaves, that would have meant bankruptcy.

    As for your other point, find me one ghetto that has dirt streets, outside plumbing, malaria, dengue fever, ebola, 45,000 flies per square inch, or the smell of a dead elephant. I think that`s what he meant.

    If a ghetto looks bad, that`s just the choice of the people who live there.

    By same conditions I did not mean the slums or the ghettos, I meant the same conditions, like India, or the poorest parts of Africa. (I might have lead my point to that mishap with my badgering of the wrongness of the title "African American")

    And as for bankruptcy / people using other people to get where they need to be, I`m not so sure, a lot of slave owners had a lot of money.

    This is my proof,
    "9. Slaves were exploited in the sense that part of the income which they produced was expropriated by their owners. However, the rate of expropriation was much lower than has generally been presumed. Over the course of his lifetime, the typical slave field hand received about 90 percent of the income he produced. "

    Sorry, post was too long, anyway continuing.
    The bit about people needing to step on heads of others to get where they need to go, what about the natives of the Americas? They didn`t need to get to where they were by killing or selling people, and their social system was far more ahead of the modern inhabitants (I speak generally). If left alone they would have eventually gotten the means for technology.

    salted eggs? their social system was ahead of ours? by what standard? they were tribal we managed to organize well enough to make a vessel to get across a f_ucking ocean. We actually had a government, they had different tribes that battled with eachother. the religion iself (worshipping animals/nature)was old, occording to honors world history atleast. in conclusion, are you mentally f_ucking retarded?

    I understand that there were warring between some of the natives, but by socially progressed I refer to how they survive and their understanding of a social system.
    I`m not good at explaining this but I`ll try, everyone there understood the importance of a population limit, the importance of many things really, something we have yet to grasp.
    I understand that they weren`t knowledgeable in areas that the English were, but they did have their merits.

    Where the English understood trade the natives understood the importance of all of earth`s resources being the inheritance of humanity.
    Probably why the English were confused when they thought they were "given" land when they were told that all the land was for everyone.

    Ah, right, also, before anyone starts calling me a Natzi, please know this, I do not condone killing people off to save the planet or to create a superior race. Now-a-days we have more humane ways of dealing with overpopulation.

    Before they gained political power in the US the Irish were treated worse than the slaves. Who do you think built all the canals? (And died in droves doing it). A slave is worth something so you are going to protect your investment and give them some kind of care, but an Irishman...you could always get more of those.

    Oh, as for worshiping nature, is that really so far-fetched? It was nature that gave them life in terms of food and knowledge.
    I think George Carlin put it best.

    "I drating hate the term "my people.""

    If you aren`t the leader of a tribe or the elder of a village, you can`t use this term appropriately.

    Ahh the noble savage. Ever heard of Easter Island?

    Sadly I think human nature is to *allways* fall foul of the "tragedy of the commons".

    Ahh the noble savage.

    Indeed. It`s purely a myth made up by more organised and technologically advanced societies. If you look at such societies in any detail, you find they`re no more or less noble than the ones that conquered them.

    Perhaps it stems from an idealised view of a simpler past (that never really existed). We tend to associate that with the time after the industrial revolution, especially in Victorian times, but it`s nothing new. For example, you can find a great deal of it in the later republican and early imperial periods of Rome. Faced with social upheaval, over-population, widespread unemployment and generally poor conditions, many Romans had a romanticised view of a past filled with Roman farmers living simple, noble lives in tune with the land.

    I thought they abolished slavery with the 13th ammendment of 1865. Wouldn`t that be less than 100 yrs going by the signing date of just the Declaration of Independence? PLEASE send her money for tuition. She DUMB!

    @turbopuppy: There was slavery in this country for over 100 years before the Declaration of Independence was signed. We were colonies of Great Britain for a long, long time. Any elementary history book will tell you this. The only thing dumb about this girl is that she think she would be eligible for reparations, as she is maybe only 1/18th black...

    I just have a few things to say about this....
    1.) it has been 200 years...your grandparents parents were not slaves so i think you can let go of that old saying "my ancestors were slaves"
    2.) i dont see the jewish people walking up to germans saying "wheres my effing money"
    and 3.) we have a black president now...now there is nothing that "seperates" black from white (may not have phrased that last one right but you get my point)
    and no I`m not racist it`s just something that i get tired of hearing about
