A long time ago I applied for a job that required a test be passed. I scored a 96 on it. When I went in for the next step I was told I had just barely passed and the passing requirement was 95. When I went to a seminar of the hiring process I talked to a few people, one I knew and a couple others. I never said what my score was but in talking with them one white lady received an 80 something and a black lady received a 70 something on the test. Me as a white guy had to score a 95 yet these ladies didn't even need to get a 90 on the damn thing. I passed on the job due to other reasons, but that still kind of ****es me off.

I moved to the area devastated by Hurricane Katrina soon after the storm. I was surprised by the number of high end luxury cars I saw. Just about all of them were new within a couple years. The longer I lived there the fewer they became. I figured out what had happened is many of these people had family homes that had been destroyed. Due to FEMA dragging their feet on the flood maps these people were unable to rebuild their houses, so they spent their money on new cars.

I also got tired of hearing how there weren't any jobs that and that unemployment benefits had to be extended. There were help wanted signs posted in a very large number of businesses. Heck even McDonalds was giving a $500 hiring bonus. I had a job so wasn't really looking for another one, but got into a discussion with one of the business owners. He said people would show up for interviews and be completely unprepared or show up in pajamas, or other inappropriate clothing or just be completely uncooperative with the hiring process. These people were on unemployment and they had to have so many employment contacts per week or they would lose their benefits. They were doing everything they could to not get hired.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) filed legislation on Tuesday that would form a commission to study the issue of granting reparations to African-Americans.
Quote:
"This bill is a way of addressing head-on the persistence of racism, white supremacy, and implicit racial bias in our country. It will bring together the best minds to study the issue and propose solutions that will finally begin to right the economic scales of past harms and make sure we are a country where all dignity and humanity is affirmed," Booker said in a statement earlier this week.

I applied to the Air Force Academy.

An Air Force lifer's brat,
who scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT,
Had the letter of recommendation from the Congressman,
and met every requirement for admission.

"Due to the low number of minority applicants for the next academic year your application cannot be accepted."

Unhappy Georgetown University Students Vote for Reparations

“Georgetown University could become the first college in the nation to mandate a fee to benefit descendants of slaves sold by the university nearly 200 years ago […]
By almost a 2-to-1 margin, students approved the measure, which still must be approved by the university to go into effect.”

I’m sure no federal grant money will be given towards this, right? Or will they and simply do some creative financial juggling so it doesn’t appear as my taxes are being funneled to the undeserving?

I would be happy to see any freed slave collect reparations from their former slave owner.

You'd have to clarify those stipulations more as slavery still exists in some portions of the world, including Africa.

Sure, but it's going to be expensive since everyone living had an ancestor who was a slave at some point. How about reparations for the descendants of white people who died to free slaves?

It isn’t that black and white where “they” got their money. There was plenty of insurance fraud going on by insurance companies who tried to pass the buck on policies. Rewording policies so the fed money, OUR money, paid for the damage.

https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...nst-state-farm

“In the years before the hurricane, State Farm issued both federal government-backed flood insurance policies and general homeowners policies. After the hurricane, the company ordered its claims adjusters to misclassify wind damage as flood damage to shift liability to the government and spare the insurance company's coffers.”

Not saying there weren’t some people who used the money they got from their insurance to buy stuff but the level of fraud is pretty rampant.

Well, you know what?

I wholeheartedly support reparations.

Let the corrupt Fed.gov add a few trillion dollars to the national debt in providing 'compensation' or whatever, pay off every black person who makes a claim.

And then?

Eliminate affirmative action and the so called 'civil rights' laws, dismantle the entire federal government bureaucracy that provides so called minority assistance programs, and eliminate all laws that pertain to nonsensical, racist 'equal opportunity' laws.

Why the change?

Because now we're even. We paid up, provided reparations, and the playing field has been reset.

We're even. You're been compensated.

Now, shut up, bitches, and quit asking for handouts and take care of your own business instead of milking taxpayers...

Total BS, just one more way the commie left is trying to take down
America.

During the civil war didn't Irish & German and Italian immigrants fight and die in the war against the Confederate Army to fight slavery ? They paid their dues. I pay everyday for reparations through taxes for government programs that i don't benefit from and my ancestors didn't own slaves. Reparations is a farce .
