Chicago looting proves Black America
deserves reparations — here's why

Original Article

The summer of 2020 has been a summer defined by agitation. What started in Minnesota following the police killing of George Floyd spread quickly across the nation. This past week, Kenosha, Wisconsin, became the latest flashpoint, as protesters clashed with police and armed vigilantes over the police shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake. One of those vigilantes has been charged with killing two protesters and injuring another. But another Midwestern city — my city — was the center of attention three weeks ago. In the early hours of Aug. 10

Comments:

Blacks have been getting reparations in the trillions since LBJ's typical dismal failure called War on Poverty, and they haven't done anything with the money except spend it on bling and high end sneakers. And I'll wager every one of the looters had his or her own Iphone or top of the line Galaxy. They've gotten their reparations so what they do now is simply outright theft.

Reparations for looters, black or white, should be measured in calibers and made from lead!

He moans about life expectancy in Englewood being 60. That of the cousins their ancestors left behind in Africa is 25 - even today. THAT to me is the crux of the issue.

Excuse me, but did I miss the thread where systemic problems in black culture is discussed? If we're to have "an honest and open discussion" about race(which is a nice liberal buzz-phrase), we must also include it. People are so afraid of being labeled and cancelled that it can't be discussed. There are "systemic" problems with black culture, also. I fear that the current climate of victimology, rioting, demands for impunity for lawlessness, and general anti-social behavior will only make things worse for black Americans, the majority of whom are normal, law-abiding people. I suggest that Mr. Ballesteros start a reparations "gofundme" page and appeal to his liberal friends. Let's see how far he gets with that. I'd like to see his personal donation.

To Mr. Ballesteros, specifying a group of people by race and race alone, and then declaring they are entitled to special treatment, is RACIST. I'd have absolutely NO PROBLEM is giving reparations to those who suffered under slavery (i.e. the slaves themselves), but if you point to a group of people that had slaves included in their history, you better include all peoples who've been enslaved-and blacks are NOT ALONE. The Jews were enslaved by the Egyptians-are today's Jews entitled to reparations from today's Egyptians? The Romans enslaved all peoples from all over the Empire, including whites born in the Empire? Where are their reparations, and who will pay them? And even more Africans were sold into slavery in the MIddle East, courtesy of the Muslim slavers who sailed to Africa then, and still operate there to this very day! Indentured servitude is alive and well all over Africa thanks to the Muslims. This movement for reparations in the United States is a foolish attempt to keep alive white guilt-and is also another way to make blacks feel inferior to others. They don't NEED reparations, they need to get out from under the yoke of the Democratic Party that ensures that public schools are inferior and produce a high percentage of minority dropouts, which then grow up to become dependent upon gvt programs, which is what the Democrats are all about. Keep you stupid, keep you dependent upon the gvt for welfare, and keep you voting Democrat to keep the ugly inhumane process going. If the majority of blacks ever realize how they've been the victim of systemic discrimination at the hands of the Democrats, the Democrats would cease to exist.

FTA; "That legacy of systemic racism is at the root of the deep poverty gripping Chicago’s Black neighborhoods today." This statement is pure drivel! The real root of problems in the black community is the sad state of black culture, some examples of which are: * a huge percentage of out-of-wedlock births and fatherless households * neighborhoods rife with violent gangs * rampant drug use and drug dealing * low regard for education or "acting white" by learning * acceptance of failing schools * etc. These problems must be addressed by blacks themselves for their own benefit. The author of this article appears convinced that blacks are forever victims and refuses to acknowledge and appreciate decades of progress made by successful blacks who accepted personal responsibility, showed a clear work ethic and applied their talents to better themselves. Examples include Dr. Thomas Sowell, Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Tim Scott, Booker T. Washington, Herman Cain, Larry Elder, Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Martin Luther King, Thurgood Marshall, Colin Powell, Jason Riley, Dr. Shelby Steele, Clarence Thomas, Allen West, Wlater E. Williams and many others. If blacks in Chicago want to better their lives they must address the issues oif their own culture.

Until blacks accept responsibility for their actions, no amount of social bribery will accomplish anything. Their call for reparations make me think repatriation. They are the failed social experiment. They dont seem to fare any better in africa, sans whitey.

Commentator, the 'War on Poverty' worked perfectly by their standards. The whole point was use the largess of taxpayer money to buy the blacks freedom FROM them. Worked just fine up to now and Democrat Elites used to laugh about it. The only people owing blacks reparations are Democrats.

Two acres and a mule were their reparations after the war. Why don't we make the blacks pay the families of the white Union soldiers killed/wounded fighting for the slaves' freedom? What about reparations for Irish, Scottish, Dutch slaves brought to this country and worked to death, because they were "free" compared to "costly" blacks? Blacks have had MORE opportunity to succeed than all the Vietnamese, Indians, Koreans, Chinese, etc. who have immigrated/escaped to come here and coincidentally, do NOT seek or demand handouts! Pick yourselves up, or get the hell out of the country. Otherwise, sue Algeria for being the slavers who captured black Africans and put them on the slave ships.

I loved that "loan" vs "investment" line. Loans are meant to be paid back. The assumption from the article is that an investment is more of a gift. Money is thrown into a big, dark abyss and nothing is ever accomplished. Maybe a lot of black households have $0 net worth because they spend the money as fast as it comes in. Remember, the African-American History Museum in Washington, DC thinks delayed gratification and being goal-oriented are "white" characteristics; described rather like character flaws. Choose to be good. Choose to be kind. Choose to stay out of trouble. Choose to take school seriously. Choose to marry the mother of your children. All of those things can be accomplished no matter what the color of your skin. I am tired of being blamed for the poor choices of others. It doesn't require another costly government program. Just stop blaming others for your own behavior and get with the program.

I could say so much, but maybe some other time. Here're my thoughts on "reparations". My reparation would be a one time-one use passport, and a one way ticket to whatever African nation the citizen thinks will take him or her and as much of his or her family he or she might be able to identify. He or she can take all the loot he or she has stolen. We'll pay sea borne freight. We will expunge his or her criminal record. He can take whatever money he has, no matter how he came by it, no questions asked. As soon as his passport is stamped at the destination, it dissolves and he gets to stay where he is. No return, for him, her, or their accompanying family. I'm way over 70, I work 40+ hours a week, no vacations, no lockdown, and my "white privilege" is to pay for all the programs which keep black people second class citizens because they don't want to assimilate, and then burn the city down when they're unhappy.

I've said this many times. If blacks want to see their reparations, go to Arlington National Cemetery and find the graves of the Union soldiers who died fighting for your freedom. There are your reparations. Arlington was started to make sure Robert E. Lee could never live on that property again with the express instructions to bury the dead as close to the house as possible.

First of all, Carlos Balless-Testosteroneless, mi amigo, the police did not kill George Floyd, George Floyd killed George Floyd. You can name any of the other police shootings you like, all involved a black criminal resisting arrest. The only people in this country who deserved reparations were the indigenous Native Americans and they got them, probably double what they were due, and are smart enough to keep their mouths shut and enjoy their government checks. Americans were not confused over the looting in Chicago. We have grown accustomed to the weekly black-on-black murders for the past decade-plus and the looting was just another incident of their complete disregard for the law. Many of the blacks in Southside Chicago are on the dole, supported by white taxpayers and completely dependent upon them. The high-end stores on Michigan avenue do not have signs out front reading "whites only" but are available to anybody who can work and make the money needed to buy those baubles. Murder, looting, arson and violence are not proper behavior anywhere in the world and I hope the savage blacks get their reparations in the form of lead. We have talked the problem to death and black behavior concerning improving their lives has not changed one bit.

Singer and Tony-winning, Oscar-nominated actress Diahann Carroll, the first African American woman to star in her own TV series, has died at her home in Los Angeles after a long bout with cancer. She was 84. Carroll is perhaps best remembered by younger audiences for her role as the conniving Dominique Deveraux on the nighttime soap “Dynasty” in the mid-’80s. But her first major television assignment was starring as the middle-class single mother Julia in a 1968 sitcom that was praised for featuring an African American in the title role as much as it was criticized for ignoring the civil rights struggle.
