I'm all for it. We can make the money back in no time. Invest some cash in GM (Escalade), the company that makes Kool cigarettes, and gold.

I absolutely support reparations.

I think that any living person who was once a slave is owed back pay.

One side of my family is from the south, and I believe they were there during that time period. But in so far as I can remember, I wasn't. Therefore, why the fukc am I paying?

The only thing that will sooth racial tensions is to shut Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton up. They are the only keeping racism alive because it is their meal ticket. We should not have to pay people for what our greatgreat grandparents did to their greatgreat grandparents.

Reparations= Another social program designed to keep lazy people on their dead ass and not work.

How about "Here's your money now we're even. No welfare, no special treatment, and no race based colleges. You sink or swim on your own merits."

Once payment is made they get nothing just for being black.

The day after the check was cashed they would all be broke again, (but have new, uninsured, improperly plated cars with 20" spinners) and some bleeding heart liberal would start up another program........

Dave Chappelle's view of reperations.

Might seem racist but it's from Dave so I guess it's your call.
