Default who would have thunk it

Nice! This means I can ask for reparations now from North African nations and the black community!!! Even though I wasn't alive 600 years ago, and probably didn't have an ancestor in that group, and no one who owned slaves is still alive..I CAN STILL DO IT!! This rocks..I've always wanted to retire and live a carefree life at the expense of others on money I don't deserve..

dont matter what color ol' slave owner was. Blacks are no longer the only ones that have been oppressed.

I feel a justification for united caucasion college fund, to offset all the propaganda from the united negro college fund.

If they give repartations for all slaves then everyone should get them because in some form or another you all have been touched by slavery.

That almost sounds valid Nuzum but if we were to claim that we would have to sue the actual countries and not people who were born a different color.
Though funny as it is the slave traders who brought africans to the US on ships were mostly Dutch and portuguese. im still waiting on that lawsuit.

One more fact, african slaves were rounded up by other africans, they were only sold in the US.

OMG, I feel so violated now. To think that my poor ole ancestor could have been a slave some 400 to 600 years ago just breaks my heart. He was so abused and oppressed I feel I am entitled to compensation.

(Did I sound like I really give a crap? If not, I need to work on it so I can get my money)!!!!!!

NP, Lurikeen..next time the NAACP, and the Rainblow Coalition hold a press conferance about sueing for reparations I will be sure to give them your email address and tell them you are willing to fork over your salary because someone 400 years ago not related to you owned a slave not related to any of the people petitioning for the money..

Trith, do you regularly string together sentences that make no sense at all?

NM, we all know you do. I shouldn't bother to ask rhetorical questions, because you are dumb enough to reply.

I don't string sentences together. I have however learned there are a great many people in this world too stupid to understand even the simplest of sentences, and therefore more than 6 words at a time may hurt their brains. Don't have a headache do you?

You haven't said a single thing about the issue Luri. Please either say something that either 1)refutes the argument 2)reinforces the argument because I just can't debate ya if you dont say ANYTHING!

When you guys are done with the Grand Wizard, maybe you'll understand that your previously enslaved ancestors made their way here, as FREE individuals and were not subjected to systematic race based oppression.

Yes, I did. I wrote, "Looks like a virtual clan meeting."

Aside from that, the article linked by Nuzum doesn't raise any issues, to me, whatsoever. I thought everyone understood that it wasn't just blacks sold into slavery. I guess I gave most of you too much credit.

True, it wasn't just blacks that were enslaved, but as far as I know, only blacks are trying to get compensation for it in the US.

Yeah, and so are Native Americans trying to get reparations. So who the fuck cares? Let these people try. It is America. Perhaps they deserve it. From what you have written, Vulpes, I can guess that you never lived under Jim Crow laws, right?

And perhaps a monkey will fly out of your ass.
