Beto O'Rourke says white Americans
don't know the full story of slavery,
continues to support reparations

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke took an unconventional approach to reaching out to African-American voters Friday, meeting with a small group representing a community of slave descendants in South Carolina and saying white Americans do not know the full story of slavery. O'Rourke spent Friday at a Baptist church in Beaufort, S.C., where the former Texas congressman met with leaders of the Gullah/Geechee Nation, a culture of coastal slave descendants whose separation from the mainland allowed them to retain much of their African heritage, including a unique dialect and skills such as cast-net fishing and basket weaving.

Oh, I see; but 'Robby' O'Rourke, who is about as black, and as exciting, as vanilla ice cream, knows all about slavery and is going to presume to lecture me all about it, huh? Lead by example, big mouth. Give all your money to Al Sharpton and make due on minimum wage....if you can find a real job that you qualify for.

Since when is pandering and 'unconventional approach' for a Democrat? White folks may not know the 'full story of slavery', but they know what a clumsy attempt at vote-buying looks like.

Why would blacks vote for the Irish Robert O'Rourke when they have Camela Harris and Cory Bookem? O'Rourke's strategy will not work, but he has never been successful in the first place.

We sure don't know the true history. Start by revealing how the African slave traders sold members of their own tribes to the honky.

Given the time that has passed, the evolution of American demographics and the distribution of money and power to black Americans through affirmative action in schools, welfare, bussing, preference in hiring, etc., the word reparations is misleading. It’s appeal lays entirely on emotions, a poor understanding of history and theory and not on facts. Users will always find marks whether black or white and the user O’Rourke decries his own life of privilege and yet, rather than forswearing it, he wants even more goodies under the guise of sainthood. And in Chicago slang circa 1960, he’s a spaz.

Since table dancing and arm flapping didn't work I guess pretend you support a black cause and hope it works. Problem is O'Rouke is white Irish and apparently he doesn't need whites to support him. Captain Skateboard hit the curb with his head one too many times doing 'axle grinds in the street.

There are no living slaves, so how can any black people know the ''full story of slavery?'' They know about slavery from the same sources as anyone else. Shameful pandering! Beto wouldn't last 5 minutes with a tough foreign leader.

This tactic may or may not turn out the black vote. I haven't really seen any clamoring for reparations aside from the activists and from the welfare set. I imagine the black working class may have a dimmer view on the subject, knowing that reparations will come out of their paychecks. Reparations, if passed and upheld will be the final nail in the coffin of the late great United States. A clear majority of those polled oppose reparations. I'm already onboard for secession. Pass reparations and I will demand it. I live in a state that has been "paying" for slavery for the past 150 years. Enough,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

As soon as Queen Elizabeth and the British government give me reparations for screwing my mom's Irish ancestors and the Italian government pays me for feeding my dad's ancestors to the lions, I'll gladly pay money to any child of a slave. Maybe even a grandchild. After that ... sorry. Grow up. And exactly how does Beto (a nickname given to him by his Hispanic nanny, who called him "Roberto") intend to pay Bill Cosby and Morgan Freeman, Spike Lee, Oprah, Al Sharpton and Lebron James, etc.

I dare say no one knows the real story of slavery because everyone involved with that era has been dead for over a half century. The current story of slavery has been so manipulated so that reparations could be paid to relatives of slaves. Were slaves beaten and whipped? Sure, some were, but an injured slave was no use to anyone. Slaves were expensive. Which is why only the wealthy had them. A typical slave cost about $3000 dollars. Older slaves cost less as did children, while a healthy slave cost a bit more. A slave costing as much as 3 grand was major investment back in 1830. Beating your slave cost one money and reduced productivity, and blacks also owned slaves. A woman in Charleston S.C. owned a shipping company and had a number of slaves. She made so much money with her shipping business when her two sons got married, she gave each son $500,000 as a present. That woman was black and lived about a block away from where slaves were bought and sold in Charleston.

So, beta claims some sort of special knowledge that is not available to the rest of us? In fact, I've read quite a bit of the subject: 95% of the Atlantic slave trade went to South America and the West Indies, to colonies of Spain and Portugal (Brazil). A relatively small amount went to North America. The descendants of slaves did not suffer any damages from slavery. In fact, if it had not been for slavery they never would have been born. The very idea that the same 16 sets of Great Great Grandparents would have met, married, and had the very same children only in West Africa instead of the US is ridiculous. That is how genealogy works if any of those 16 couples had not met, then the entire family tree would be altered and the person(s) living today who are their descendants would have never been born. If not for slavery those particular people would not have been "born in Africa", they never would have been born at all.

Slavery ended over 150 years ago and now we're going to give billions of dollars to a group of people who most likely can't tell you when or where the Civil War was fought and on whose behalf it was fought. I think the Germans should give me a new BMW, Mercedes or Porsche as "reparation" for family killed in Europe during WW II and likewise the Japanese should give me a new Toyota SUV or Lexus as reparation for Pearl Harbor etc.

Once again the definition of reparations is...'taking money from me, a person who has never owned a slave, giving it to you, a person who has never been a slave, so you will vote for democrats. Also, do Blacks think if they get enough votes for reparations they will see one single dime of the money? The money will be given to 'community activists' like al sharpton and jesse jackson and after they've skimmed ten or twenty percent off the top, the rest will go right back to the 'rat party coffers and used to get more 'rat politicians into office.

Black Americans can demand all the reparations they want, from those who actually ran the slave trade. Arabs raided African villages and bought slaves from tribal chiefs for centuries, and marched their booty to the African coast to be sold. All those arabs living in gold palaces made their billions from oil and the slave trade. Demand your reparations from them. They can afford it, and it was they who were responsible. Leave White American alone, as we had nothing to do with it, and it was we who fought and died by the hundreds of thousands to free your ancestors. If anything, you owe us.

As their minivan rolled north, they felt their nerves kick in — but they kept on driving. At the wheel: Lija Greenseid, a rule-abiding Minnesota mom steering her Mazda5 on a cross-border drug run. Her daughter, who is 13, has Type 1 diabetes and needs insulin. In the United States, it can cost hundreds of dollars per vial. In Canada, you can buy it without a prescription for a tenth of that price. So, Greenseid led a small caravan last month to the town of Fort Frances, Ontario, where she and five other Americans paid about $1,200 for drugs that would have cost them $12,000 in the United States.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – More than 2,700 cases overseen by a former common pleas judge could be reexamined after allegations that the judge came to work drunk and was possibly involved in a local sex trafficking ring in Portsmouth. The Ohio Public Defender's office is launching an effort to review any case overseen by retired Scioto County Common Pleas Court Judge William T.

All that was missing was an annoying OMG text exclamation punctuating the unfounded claims that Trump might violate the law in 2020 by accepting intelligence on a political rival from a foreign country. The inference, of course, is that it would come from a hostile power such as Russia or North Korea or Iran. Actually, what Trump told ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos was that he’d consider taking intelligence dirt about a rival from a friendly ally.

Moms are said to be suffering under "second-shift motherhood," while the "working dad" commands less and less respect, thanks to the perception that he does not pull his weight.
