Myrtle Beach (United States) - For centuries, South Carolina's Charleston was the largest port of entry for the transatlantic slave trade. Now, a billionaire activist named Tom Steyer is shaking up the state's Democratic primary by advocating slavery reparations for African Americans. A California financier turned philanthropist and environmental campaigner, Steyer has poured tens of millions of dollars into the state ahead of Saturday's vote -- with a single-minded focus on the black voters who make up 60 percent of its Democratic electorate. How South Carolina's African Americans vote in the White House primaries is traditionally a key indicator of which contender

Idiotic. Who would pay for the reparations, and to whom would they be given?

I would submit that welfare programs and affirmative action laws and job preferences are in fact "reparations". How much longer are we going to have to keep this up?

Steyer is trying to buy the election with other people's money. I suppose he would allow a tax exemption for African-Americans. There would be a lot of White African -Americans if that happened. After all, there are a lot of White people in Africa... What a losing proposition. Reparations is desperations...

Biden has gone into overdrive pandering to black voters in SC. He even said that SC with their 60% black democrats is what America really looks like. Sorry Joe, but the black population in America is about 16%, and going down due to illegal immigration.

What's really sad is one of these ingrates will eventually get the 2020 Democratic nomination for President. None of them deserve it. None of them will govern. Anyone that thinks pandering is actually governing is badly mistaken.

How the Democrats have treated blacks throughout the history of America is a genocidal crime. First they didn't want to lose control of their slaves so they fought a Civil War, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands....then enacted Jim Crow to maintain segregation with the KKK as their enforcers (a role now enjoyed by Antifa)....then voted against the Civil Rights Act....then Johnson's Great Society rewarding black mothers for not having husbands, destroying the black nuclear family....Margaret Sanger with Planned Parenthood's mission of aborting as many black babies as possible.... Is this not genocide? Isn't it? And think of all the willing minions the Dems have in academia, sports, the media, politics....evil lives today, and nowhere is it better represented by the Democratic Party, the most successful crime syndicate in the history of the world.

Obviously, funding for such reparations should come exclusively from Democrats. After all, they were the party that insisted on supporting and maintaining Slavery. And while we are at it, I let's start a reparations fund for Republicans, underwritten by Hollywood, since it was one of their performers (actor John Wilkes Booth) who killed the man who was one of the original founders of the Republican Party, and who emancipated the slaves, President Abraham Lincoln.

Sure, let's give reparations to any "black" citizen who can trace all of his ancestors on both sides of his family back and prove that all were slaves and that none of them actually held slaves. An average 20 yo "black" person would have at least 20 or 40 ancestors who lived during the 1850s, many of whom were probably white and many of whom possibly owned slaves, themselves. How do you separate out the genes in your body that came from slaves from those that came from slave owners? You are equally related to both ancestors, assuming you have the same number of genes from both. In fact many blacks in this country have no ancestors at all who were slaves and I would expect that a majority of white people have no ancestors at all who held slaves. Immediately after the civil war, it would have made sense to force all slave holders to hand over everything they owned over to their former slaves. And if a Democrat hadn't murdered Lincoln, he would have arranged for actual former slaves to receive property and other reparations. But 200 years after the fact, everyone actually involved in slavery is dead and long gone, along with any reasonable requirement for "reparations."

I've listened to Steyer discuss reparations. He continually references "four hundred years of slavery". I'm not clear on what is his beginning date and what is his ending date. My impression is that it hasn't ended yet. When he is asked what kind of reparations, at what cost, and from whom would they be paid and who would receive them, he says we're going to have to figure that out and discuss it. It would seem to me that somewhere, somehow, a value would have to be placed on what is owed before any plans or discussions can take place. How to do that? How to place a value on "400 years of slavery". Do we include inflation? It's all so crazy that it's hard to believe Steyer wants to be taken seriously. This seems to be his major reason for running for president, to create, install and execute a method of making reparations. What about the Indians? Aren't they owed something too? It would never end and the value would never be assessed and the cost would burden the nation til the end of time.

Steyers has billions, that would go a long way toward repaying all the blacks his white ancestors owned. My ancestors arrived here from Austria around 1895-1905, so I'm exempt from paying.

And 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. And even if in a moment of insanity, Americans voted to give Blacks reparations, do they actually think they would see even a single dime of that money? The money would go to 'community activists' AKA democratic operatives and right back into the 'rat party coffers.

This is not just ridiculous but is downright dangerous. Liberals, for political gain, won’t let us move forward in America. Legal slavery ended her in 1863. My ancestors didn’t come to America until well after the end of the Civil War. No one alive today in America was a slave in the South. No former slave owners are alive. Slavery was a terrible thing, but it’s been over for more than 150 years. Slavery was not unique to America back then. It still exists in places in the world today. So libtards- stop trying to put us on guilt trip. None of us alive today are responsible for slavery. Even if we were, no one is alive to be paid for it. When slaves were alive, thousands of Union troops fought and many died fighting for Union and freedom.

What does he think welfare benefits are? We have paid Billions to the black community since LBJ signed the bill. They would be better off going after the Arabs, for it was they who were the slave traders back then, not the US government. Besides, who decides who qualifies? That is the big question. Most of the ones who would qualify in my opinion died long ago. Today's black community has never been a slave, unless you count the democrat mental slavery practiced in their party.

No person in the USA has been a slave for 155 years. If a person was born a slave and freed at the age of one years, and lived to be 100 years old, those "last possible" slaves died over HALF A CENTURY ago, after living 99% of their lives as free men and women. And yet, somehow, the current people, three or four generations removed from all of this ancient history need to "pay reparations" to people who never were slaves, never even MET a real slave, many totally unrelated to anyone who was ever a slave, even 155 yeats ago? Drop dead, this is a load of BS that most of us are not buying.

We are paying 'reparations' every day with food stamps, welfare something or other, people sleeping until noon to get up and get drugged up. I have yet to see a starving black person, all I see is overfed people who want free Mercedes and free 10 room houses with 5 servants. A private plane would not hurt. Never owned a black slave and I don't plan to pay any further reparations than what I am taxed with now!

SUMTER, S.C. — In October, Pete Buttigieg said he would do better with South Carolina’s black voters once they got to know him better. When he came back in December, he was still working on introducing himself to the black electorate. And in late January he admitted he was scared that at his rallies in South Carolina, where 60 percent of the Democratic electorate is black, most attendees were white. Those fears were borne out on Saturday, when Mr. Buttigieg was trounced in South Carolina’s primary and earned just two percent of the vote from African-Americans, according to early exit polling.

The South Carolina primary has been called for Joe Biden. This isn’t a surprise. South Carolina, with its large number of black voters, has always been seen as Biden’s firewall, but early returns suggest that his margin may be impressive. Bernie Sanders apparently is finishing second. Possibly the most important fact about today’s vote is that none of the Sanders/Biden alternatives showed any perceptible strength. Michael Bloomberg didn’t participate. There has never been a moment during the campaign when I have taken Biden seriously as a candidate for the Democratic nomination, let alone the presidency. Despite today’s win, his decrepitude seems to be accelerating. No doubt you have seen reports

Conservatives have been trying for decades to create an immigration system that rewards immigrants who won’t be a burden on society and discourages those who will.

Ultimately, the problem is that nobody likes her. For the intelligentsia like those at the esteemed New York Times, she was the perfect candidate, an antidote to Donald Trump’s toxic masculinity. But on Saturday night, the clock ran out.

After Joe Biden finished an astonishing fourth in Iowa and then in fifth place in New Hampshire, I wrote a postmortem for his campaign. It now looks like one of the most wrong things I have ever written. It was pointed out to me after I published that I described Biden’s campaign in the past tense, something I did not plan or realize beforehand. It simply seemed obvious nobody could come back from such a catastrophe — least of all Joe Biden. After Biden's South Carolina victory, the first primary he has ever won in his three presidential campaigns, things look quite different. The status of Biden’s campaign has not only been upgraded to “alive” — at this point he is the primary, and probably the sole, alternative to Bernie Sanders.
